Remember the cat and dog food recall that had happened. Melamine was put in the dog and cat food and now they are putting it in the milk for the babies. Have they not learned from the first mistake. Or will they ever learn that melamine can make someone very sick and die from it.

No they have not. They are the ones that put melamine in the cat and dog food and a lot of people lost their pets from it. The FDA had to go there and investigate what was going on at the time. People there ran down their own factories so we would not find out what they were doing and what they were putting in the cat and dog food. Now they are putting melamine in the milk for the babies and the babies are dying and that is the chemical that they put in the cat and dog food the killed the animals.

Too bad the "trial and error" method leads to babies dying.

The problem here is many of these companies are privately owned enterprise. For example I read Sanlu is partially owned by Fontera of NZ,up to 43% shareholding. But that doesn't mean Fontera should to be held accountable or blamed without understanding the management structure or the insider stories.
Conspiracy theory, I don't think so!

Right, that's what I'm saying...

That animal tragedy only happened a few years ago...it just seems that all this is starting over the past several years..

what a coincidence. or.......

could it be something more, perhaps?

You are absolutely right. But that's is life, isn't it and fortunately I read, none of these products were exported. China is a new country as far as laws and regulations are concerned.

Anyway in order for these products to be imported in the USA, they have to be tested and approved by the regulating body like the FDA.
