Melamine found in Milk Powder: One Confirmed Death

September 13, 2008

Remember the tainted pet food that came from China that killed so many innocent cats and dogs? Well, it’s happening all over again, except this time it’s affecting innocent children.

Hundreds are ill with kidney stones and one has already died, all because a plastic (melamine) was added to their milk products in infant formulas. The Chinese government is slow to recall and 78 are now arrested. Seriously, how was this even allowed to happen?

Instead of repeating it all here, read the story in more detail over at Eco Child’s Play. And, please, spread the word. The innocents and voiceless of the world deserve a strong voice.

@Bug – Hi! Thanks so much for the compliment. Considering everything, I feel great! Everything is going well with Binary Boy, except for that whole breech thing. But, we’re working on that!

is there any knowledge out there if consuming melamine-contaminated diary products could affect the health of a pregnant woman and her unborn baby? My wife is fve months pregnant and has been in China for the ast 2 months, drinking t least one glass of milk every day – not knowing if it was contaminated or not.

@chris – From my brief research, I couldn’t find much research regarding your question. Though, from what I do know, a mothers system and the placenta will generally filter any harmful substances before reaching a fetus, but she might want to either cut out or cut down on the amount of milk she is drinking until this blows over.

The only information I did find regarding your question was an FAQ on the Government of Hong Kong’s Centre for Food Safety website – See #7.
