Happy Melamine!

Halloween is supposed to be the day for fake scares (at least it is now - back when it was All Hallow's Eve things were different), but instead we have a genuine scare from Communist China (BBC):

The toxic chemical melamine is probably being routinely added to Chinese animal
feed, state media has reported.

Correspondents say the unusually frank reports in several news outlets are an admission that contamination could be widespread throughout the food chain.

Read those words slowly, "contamination could be widespread throughout the food chain." Even the Communist-run newspaper China Daily went as far as to say, "We cannot say for sure if the same chemical has made its way into other types of food" - although even that is skirting around the truth, since we do know "the same chemical has made its way" into eggs.

Lest anyone think this is just a problem for East Asia, at least one American lab "found 30 samples of animal feed contaminated with melamine . . . all imported to the U.S. from China and came from the same company" (Epoch Times).

Thus the real scare trumps the phony ones.

Happy Melamine!

Warning for Americans: Kidney troubles have increased by 30% in America in the last 10 years*.

It's time to have all imports of foodstuffs and food ingredients from Communist China examined for melamine contents.
