Melamine Cookies Found in Netherlands
Two kinds of Chinese-made cookies have been pulled of the shelves in the Netherlands beause they contained high concentrations of the chemical melamine. This latest recall is the latest addition to the list of melamine-tainted products being found in food products derived from China all around the world.
The Dutch Food Safety Authority said Tuesday the chestnut and chocolate flavored cookies from the "Koala" brand are now off the market because of their melamine concentration.
New melamine-tainted products are being announced on an almost daily basis.
In South Korea, officials say the chemical was found in Nabisco Ritz cracker cheese sandwiches and in rice crackers made by the Chinese company, Danyang Day.
Since the melamine scandal broke in early September, more than 50 governments around the world have either banned or recalled Chinese-made products containing milk.
