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.
