business news in context, analysis with attitude

There was a report in Friday that baby formula manufactured in China has been found to contain melamine – the same contaminant found to be in china-manufactured pet food that poisoned and killed thousands of U.S. dogs and cats last year. Initial reports were that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that no formula approved for sale in the US is manufactured in China.

Subsequently, however, the FDA acknowledged that some baby formula from China may have made its way into the US through the black market, and that consumers need to be vigilant about not using any baby formula imported from China.

KC's View:
They may know how to throw an Olympics, but there is very little news coming out of China that would give one confidence in their food supplies. “Made in China” remains as much a warning label as anything else.
