You and Jay VOn have misunderstood, the papers, internet and news reports here have said that 3 Chinese babies have died in China from the contaminated milk.

Last week when I was in Singapore, the Singapore govt. did find 3 food products imported from China that were not healthy and they were pulled off the shelves but sorry I did not pay enough attention to the news or newspaper as to what exactly th products or foodstuffs were.

Indonesia has not found any contaminated Chinese food products so far.......sorry Jay Von, better luck for you next time.

Well I am glad to hear that. The total number of sick babies just now stands at 53000 approx in china.

Robert, her is the answer.

Baby formula and other milk products have been pulled from stores around the country and Chinese dairy products have been recalled or banned in Bangladesh, Japan, Singapore, Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia and Hong Kong.

Four Hong Kong children have been reported with kidney stones.

Does not get any better does it

Death toll is up to 4 babies now.............

As a baby, my daughter regularly drank Chinese infant-formula. So when I learned of the latest tainted food scare sweeping China, it hit home – even from a seemingly safe distance in Canada.

In fact, years after bringing our adopted daughter back to a more predictable life here, I still don't feel safe.

Four babies are dead and 50,000 sickened across China so far
. And millions of Chinese parents are terrified by the threat to their food supply.

You should be, too.

Like my daughter, who was fed local formula during her first months in an orphanage, we're all at risk. Even if we don't knowingly consume Chinese products, we're all shackled to the global food chain.

It might be herbal compounds used in multivitamins; pig intestines used in blood-thinning drugs; or fruit concentrate blended in juice. Do you really know what you're ingesting? Where it came from?

Thanks Robert, that is very interesting thinking and I just loved this bit (quote)


Now, there's no way of knowing what's what. When I pick up a carton of mango juice here to check its origins, the package proclaims, "Product of Canada." As if we grow mangos here.

Ottawa is changing its food regulations next year to require that ingredients be 98 per cent Canadian in origin to qualify for the "Product of Canada" label. If 51 per cent of the manufacturing costs are incurred in Canada, the package can say, "Made in Canada from imported ingredients" – but without specifying whether your carrot juice originated in America or China.

That's a recipe for continued uncertainty.

Canadians had a bitter foretaste of the risks last year, when hundreds of dogs and cats fell ill across North America. The problem was traced to a Mississauga factory using ingredients imported from China laced with melamine, which can trigger kidney failure.

My first thought when that story broke was that if the Chinese were using melamine in pet food, it was only a matter of time before it spread to products like powdered milk. While we fretted over our pets – and yes, I have a cat, too – I wondered how many human lives would be imperilled next.

I remembered the babies of Anhui. And thought of my own daughter. You should, too.

ERIC.
