Melamine Contaminated Food! Don't Eat!

Original Post Date - 23 September 2008
Melamine ....

a white, crystalline, slightly water-soluble solid, C3N3(NH2)3, used chiefly in organic synthesis and in the manufacture of resins, esp. melamine resins. (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/melamine)

Melamine by itself is nontoxic in low doses, but when combined with cyanuric acid (a white, crystalline, water-soluble solid, C3H3O3N3·2H2O, used chiefly in organic synthesis) it can cause fatal kidney stones.

The events leading to the poisoning started some time in March 07 when it was discovered that the cause of numerous animal illneses was linked to contaminated pet food. The laboratory test results of these samples detected the presence of melamine. The source of the wheat gluten was traced back to a supplier in China.

Now its September 08 and Melamine and China are synonymous again. I remember watching CNN sometime last week, and the scrolling text at the bottom caught my eye...'1 infant reported dead in China suspected of contaminated milk poisoning.' Then shortly after the number rose to 2. (53,000 infants ill and hospitalizing almost 12,900 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melamine), Milk powder containing melamine has killed four infants in China and made over 6,000 more ill - http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2008/9/18/worldupdates/2008-09-18T172416Z_01_NOOTR_RTRMDNC_0_-355399-2&sec=Worldupdates)

The latest is other dairy products have been called back as well as test results showed that they were contaminated as well.

Im no expert in this field...but I'd like to share with you a list of food that should not be consumed. It was sent to me by a friend. So i guess better safe then sorry! We all wanna live don't we ~_~
