Awww man, and I have always thought that Cadbury was an exclusively UK/Australian thing.

That just ruined my day.

That's the last thing Cadbury need as well. It would be the price of China if Cadbury closed down their production lines there.

The melamine contaminated pet food was the canary in the coal mine....
it died.

When melamine is added to dairy products, it raises it's protein level so it wholesales for a higher price.
Greed is the motivator here.
I suspect that this current scandal is the tip of the iceberg.

I am stressed ...
need chocolate.

Wow. Nothing is safe.

Try some Green & Black's organic chocolate for your chocolate urge.

It was inevitable that the melamine scandal wouldn't end at the gluten/pet food discovery. I am sure it has been added for years into anything possible.

I agree with you Jenny....
most of us, animals, children and adults from many countries, have probably consumed melamine that was in food products imported from China.

Just another reason not to eat packaged foods... buying local and preparing everything yourself is becoming more and more important for our health!

It's amazing how much greed destroys.

It is what I do too. Who knows what that stuff is doing to people's bodies and endocrine systems. We could find that it causes all sorts of illness and maybe even mental issues by messing with our chemistry. Maybe even some cancers.

I check everything I buy for made in china, and will not purchase it. Don't care what it is, clothing etc. A lot of things are not labled though.
