HANOI, Vietnam (AP) -- More reports of tainted Chinese food are coming in from health officials around the world.
Vietnam is the latest. Its health ministry says it discovered the industrial chemical melamine in 18 import products and has ordered them recalled and destroyed.
Russian news agencies report food inspectors have found nearly two tons of tainted dry milk from China. Philippines and Australian officials are also reporting tests coming up positive for melamine.
Meanwhile, U.S. regulators say the amounts they've found so far are safe in most food, unless they were found in baby formula.
Last week the FDA warned consumers to avoid Chinese-made White Rabbit Candy and Mr. Brown coffee products.
