Melamine in the Candy
This Halloween, in addition to spooks, ghouls and Frankensteins, eager trick-or-treaters will have to WATCH OUT for candy too. Trace amounts of the now infamous pesticide, melamine, have been found in Chinese-made KitKat, Snickers and M&M’s; Reuters reports.
The offending chocolates were discovered in South Korea. Officials quickly PULLED the products, but the Korea Food and Drug Administration insists that the low levels of melamine, 2.38 and 1.78 parts per million, pose NO human health risks.
Melamine contamination has ignited a FIRESTORM! Here in the United States the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has warned against buying Chinese-made baby formula and even Chinese candy sold in United States has turned up melamine.
So this Halloween, give out APPLES! Just watch out for razor blades.
