Tainted eggs from Hanwei were discovered in Hong Kong late last week; melamine was present at nearly double the maximum permissible level. Health officials in Hong Kong say that there's little risk to human health -- and that a child would have to eat perhaps 20 eggs a day for the melamine to have an effect.
The World Health Organization says that crystals have been found in the kidneys of some children. WHO's regional food safety expert Anthony Hazzard told Reuters Tuesday: "We believe at this stage that it's really the complex of melamine and cyanuric acid forming what you call crystals ... they can form in the small tubules [in the kidneys] and they get bigger and can block the tubules."

Nothing much to note here, don't worry.
I can still walk down to the shops and get whatever I want.
Actually if you don't watch the news, you wouldn't know anythings going on.
Besides, if you guys still have food over there ( I think ), why wouldn't we here?
