Didn't know where to put this . The melamine is now in products for human consumption globally. Google+news will give the latest.

I saw this on the news, this world is getting a scary place. :(

They watered down the milk so to cover up what they did, they added melamine to increase the protein. Thousands of babies are sick and some have died.

I am from Taiwan. So I am ethnically Chinese. Most people in Taiwan tries to avoid food from China.
I hope they tighten their food and drug policy fast.
Didn't they just sentenced their Ex-Chief of China Food and Drug Unit Sentenced to Death for Graft last year?
