    Cadbury: Chinese-made products questionable

    BY ASSOCIATED PRESS
    HONG KONG---- British chocolate maker Cadbury said Monday that tests have ''cast doubt'' on the safety of its Chinese-made products and ordered a recall, the latest foreign company affected by China's tainted milk scandal.

    Meanwhile, two U.S. food makers were investigating Indonesian claims that high traces of melamine were found in Chinese-made Oreos, M&Ms and Snickers.

    Cadbury said in a statement it has recalled 11 chocolate products made at its factory in the Chinese capital Beijing, which are distributed in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Australia.

    Tests ''cast doubt on the integrity of a range of our products manufactured in China,'' Cadbury said in the statement issued from its office in Singapore.

    It was not immediately clear whether the tests revealed melamine, the industrial chemical at the center of China's recent milk scandal.

    An Asia spokeswoman for Cadbury did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press.

    The company said all of its dairy suppliers have been cleared by government milk testing.

    China's recent food safety scandal started with the discovery of melamine in baby milk powder.

    Four deaths have been blamed on the bad milk, and some 54,000 children have developed kidney stones or other illnesses after drinking the contaminated baby formula.
    I certainly hope that Halloween Peeps won't be implicated in this horror. :D

    Don't eat those things !Those little sponge critters are made from a gummy mass of steamed animal fat just like jello .

    The connecting tissue from pigs,horses and other slaughtered farm animals are all boiled down in a huge steam pots and are bleached and laced with a sweetener before being poured into molds to make those little chicks !

    China makes all of that Halloween candy these days and anything of high volume and low quality will be found produced in China and Remember the sweetener, polyglyco,l they used in their poisoned tooth paste !

    What is the definition of polyglycol?
    A synthetic and biodegradable chemical used to make eco-friendly hydraulic fluids.

    The 'Wal-Marting of America' will end up costing us a great deal more than we’ll ever save at the register.
