Vietnam to destroy Chinese tainted milk products

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.

    This comment makes me cringe: "U.S. regulators say the amounts they've found so far are safe ..." This from a government that has experimented on its own many, many times in the past from the blacks/syphilis experiment (not giving blacks penicillin treatments in order to study the effects of the disease), the radiation/troops experiments (having our military men exposed to radiation to see what would happen to them), etc. Now, they are poisoning our water/flouride? Do some research and you will be shocked to find it was used in the Nazi prison camps for a reason. Here is just one report on the poison you should check out: P.S. Is your government putting fluoride in your water to help you or is it for the same reason Hitler used it in his prison camps? By the way, Project Paperclip brought many of the German scientist into the USA to work for our government. What other poisons did these scientist shown our leaders how to use?
