Natosucks, an article the other day said it was common for Chinese food producers to include melamine in processed foods, even vegtable and meat extracts so if this is the case your list will end up a long one. Food authorities are saying it is not dangerous in food were only small portions are eaten but all those small portions add up. If it is a banned substance in local foods all imports containing it should also be banned. After all it is only to boost the nitrogen content so companies can make false claims about food quality, so why protect companies that cheat.

Without question this is a very good move upon the Govt of Japan. Believe me as we Cdns have seen tainted food products come from China in the past few yrs.

So far all I've found were-

Kurimu Panda(a kind of cream pan I think), Guratan Kurepu Kon(corn gratin crepe), Matcha Azuki Mirukuman( I don't know what this is, ice cream??) and Koala no March.

Japan's fear of Chinese food products is based on real events and facts.

I read that a New Zealand dairy giant owns most of the stock in the Chinese milkish joint that produced the toxic brew. So much for clean kiwi business. I never thought a kiwi company would turn a blind eye to kids getting poisoned.
