Melamine is in what?
Melamine-laden milk powder made in China has made its way into Chinese infant formula, of course, but is also turning up in candy in New Zealand, croissants in Japan, M&Ms in South Korea, and coffee drinks in the United States. Now the British Food Standards Agency (FSA) warns that melamine has been found in something more exotic. Would you believe chocolate-flavored “willy” syrup. You don’t know what this is? Consider it a caloric sex toy. If you have used it already, the FSA says not to worry. The melamine dose is too low to do harm. Whew.
Thanks (I think) to blogger Doctor Yoni Freedhoff for passing this one along.
