The milk that killed 4 children in China, and made 50,000 of them sick, was laced with an industrial chemical called melamine, which can cause kidney stones (which can be fatal in infants). Melamine has a high nitrogen content, which makes products seem to be higher in protein than they really are. Now it turns out that melamine has been found in candy imported from China. Is this a danger for trick-or-treaters?
BBC News reports that Cadbury’s (a chocolate company based in the UK) has discovered melamine in some of its chocolates that were produced in Cadbury?s Chinese factories. Also, some chocolate products, such as Oreos, M & Ms and Snickers, may be counterfeits imported from China.
