Kraft, Mars Investigating Tainted Oreos, M&Ms


www.foxnews.com

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Two U.S. foodmakers were investigating Indonesian claims Monday that high traces of melamine were found in Oreo wafers, M&Ms and Snickers imported from China.

Indonesia's Food and Drug Monitoring Agency said a dozen allegedly tainted products distributed nationwide, including those popular brands, had repeatedly tested positive last week.

Indonesia stepped up testing of Chinese food imports foods after melamine-tainted milk was blamed in the deaths of four infants.

First it was Pet food, then Cough Syrup and Toothpaste. Now, we have tainted candy with a Chinese source yet again. Much of this is the result of the tainted Milk, and the fact that such Milk is also used in the creation of Milk-Chocolate.

As of yet, this tainting remains a claim in need of further investigation. It does result however in making one aware of the problem, and puts forth an obvious idea of how to avoid it (at this current point in time).

Whilst I'm not doubting the veracity of these claims - China has themselves admitted there's been a serious problem with melamine-tainted milk product - I'm pondering on the convenience of creating another bogeyman at this point in time. Surely this would be a great time to create a trade dispute of some kind with China and find ways to stop feeding the Chinese economy?
