Although I reside in the U.S. I love to go to the Asian stores for great prices and authentic foods. However, this article made me think twice about what I have consumed from overseas in the last couple months.
Employees from a Chinese dairy have tainted powdered milk products causing 6 deaths and 300,000 ill of which 54,000 were children. It has been reported that the milk was laced with an industrial chemical. The manager of this food company was accused of selling over 5 tons of the contaminated product to a food additive company in Guangxi.
Although there is a high concentration of the milk in baby formula, it has also infected other products such as rice balls, yogurt, and candy. It was also found in the Taiwan Pizza Hut.
Many companies in china have put a halt their distribution. I can’t help but feel bad for the Chinese government knowing that this will definitely affect their economy since a large portion of their money comes from exporting goods. However, look out for yourself and watch the products you intake especially if they contain milk products from overseas.
