Melamine tainted products in Korea

The government has been updating its list of melamine tainted products in Korea on a daily basis. The latest bulletin is for October 4th, Saturday. However, the list is entirely in Hangeul and is not available in English. It’s downloadable from the website FoodNara. The first PDF file contains the list of products being tested and those that have been tested. Melamine tainted products are highlighted in pink (of all colors!)
In the list are:
– Kosohan ssal kwaja (rice cookie)
– Snickers Peanuts (fun size) from Mars Korea
– Ritz sandwich crackers cheese from Nabisco
– Misarang Custard from Haitai
– Misarang Coconut from Haitai
– Lotte Choudy
– Kitkat (one of my faves!)
– Milk Rusk
– M & M’s Milk Chocolate
Fortunately, infant milk formula have tested negative for the chemicals. Here’s a news article from Korea Times: Melamine Found in Chocolate Products from China
