China Milk Tainted: Melamine could kill again?

Some worrying news to report now, as it has been confirmed that Chinese food safety officials have found more traces of dairy products which contain the toxic chemical melamine.

You may remember that back in 2008, melamine was found in milk and subsequently killed six babies and made around 300,000 ill.

According to this new BBC report, 64 tonnes of raw dairy products have been contaminated with melamine, with recent tests showing that the milk powder contained over 500 times the maximum allowed level for melamine.

This is a very serious issue if melamine products are still being sold illegally on the market, despite reports that the Chinese government had cracked-down on using such products in factories.

Is it worrying to hear that Melamine could still be contaminated, even after the investigation in 2008? Let us know your thoughts on this.
