    Melamine was first detected in the human food chain in 2007, when USDA tests indicated that cattle that consumed melamine tainted wheat gluten in their feed had trace amounts of the chemical in their bodies when processed for human consumption.

    Melamine, for those who need a refresher, was what caused the mass deaths of pets in the pet food scandal-it causes renal failure and a build up of ammonia in the blood.

    Don't forget the poisoned sandals that caused horrible blisters and infections anywhere the colored portion touched.

    And that would explain why Cadbury (UK candy company) is recalling it's Chinese-made candy.

    We import so many products into this country that if someone wanted to they could kill a lot of people just by contamination or poisoning!!!!

    Hmmm-the key however is to lull the FDA into thinking that there is such a thing as "acceptable levels" of melamine in our food...like the cow thing. So the animals, for example, were getting a double whammy because the wheat gluten being used in the animal food was tainted AND the animal renderings in the animal food were tainted.

    So if we have a little melamaine in our food chain everywhere, the end result is...

    Now, how long does it stick around in the body I wonder?

    I will be curious to see if this is a tip of the iceburg thing, and we will find out that Hershey's has been using Chinese milk protein because milk in the US is too expensive....

    And Hershey's has opened a plant in Mexico where much of its candy is now produced much cheaper than in USA. Who knows where they get their milk product???

    Of course. My dog died in the poisoned dog food thing, so I'm still really ticked off at whoever made the decison to do that.

    I usually never buy anything made in China, if I can help it. But with the dog food it was made in the US with ingredients imported from China. How are we supposed to know where the manufacturers are buying their ingredients?? This sucks.

    Seriously, mine ate the wet canned dog food from WalMart. WalMart. There's a WalMart EVERYWHERE. You assume it's safe.

    I would assume that Wal-Mart can sell cheap BECAUSE it buys cheap. Though I'm not at all sure that anywhere else is any safer.

    See now, I would think that WalMart is probably purina in walmart cans, you know? But it didn't matter, in the end, because all of the wheat gluten was imported from the same country.

    So lovely people; where does all of the milk protein come from and you can BET no one wants to break the answer to that questions until AFTER Halloween. JMO.
