    Going International - Tainted milk forces Marudai into recall

    Tainted milk forces Marudai into recall

    OSAKA (Kyodo) Marudai Food Co. said Saturday it has recalled five products imported from a major Chinese dairy firm that are suspected of containing milk tainted by toxic melamine.

    In Tokyo, the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry decided to advise food makers' associations to check whether products made by its members contain the dangerous chemical.

    All of the products in question, which include pastries and steamed meat buns, are already on the market. This includes about 2,500 bags of three products that have probably already been consumed.

    So far, there have been no reports of health problems, the company said.

    A Marudai subsidiary in China bought contaminated raw milk produced by Chinese dairy firm Yili, through trading house Sumitomo Corp. The milk was then used to produce processed food products, most of which were imported by Japan, Marudai said.

    Earlier Saturday, the Osaka-based company warned the health insurance center in Takatsuki, Osaka Prefecture, that its products might contain melamine-laced milk.

    Through food organizations, the health ministry will instruct Japanese importers who deal in processed food to examine their products and urge them to recall any found to contain melamine.

    Government figures show that less milk and milk products are imported from China than from Australia and New Zealand.

    If they are used as an ingredient in processed foods, existing statistical surveys only state that Chinese milk or milk ingredients were used in Japanese products, not the amounts they contain.

    In China, traces of the toxin melamine have been found in milk products produced by several dairy firms.

    Do not rush to post with FedEx as it may cost you a hell of money. I once had to pay an unbelievable sum for a really small package. In most cases, this post is meant for companies and business dispatches. For individual deliveries, it is better to look for some more affordable options. I am in https://postcodefinder.net/england/london and we have here many smaller and cheaper services.

    Please start a new thread with something about FedEx in the title! Right now this is the second message in a 2008 thread about tainted baby formula in China.
