Cadbury says Chinese-made chocolate have melamine

For those of you living under a rock, melamine is the poisonous substance unscrupulous food traders in China (and possibly other places) use to up the protein content--first, the pets died, and then the babies died from melamine-tainted milk formula. Nabisco also has an Oreo plant in China--let this be a reason to stop eating those Oreos. Watch out!

From the AP this morning:

--------------------------------------------------
27 minutes ago

HONG KONG - A Cadbury spokesman says preliminary results show its Chinese-made chocolates contain the industrial chemical melamine.

The spokesman said Monday it was too early to say how much melamine the chocolates contained.

He declined to give his name because of company policy.

Cadbury said earlier the tests "cast doubt" on the safety of its Chinese-made products but didn't elaborate.

GreenFertility's Organic/Wildcrafted/Fair trade recommendation:

Theo Origin makes some great organic or fair trade chocolates that are single-sourced (i.e., not from China).

Theo (and other good chocolatiers) makes dairy-free chocolates. Their best bars have only sugar and chocolate from fantastic sources. Maybe a part of the lesson here is that we shouldn't be so dairy dependent.
Marie, I'm unhappy with the change of background. I find it very hard to read.

Thanks for the list of dairy products and thanks for the comments on the format...when blogger switched to a new blogger thing, my archives got messed up and the fonts were all over the place. Haha, if i were professionally blogging, someone wd fix it. I'll see if I can put it back, though.

Yikes. I have been living under a polictical rock and only heard about about the Melamine two days ago. Thankfully, I only consume dark (milk free), organic and/or fair-trade, and/or local chocolate.
