Halloween may just be scarier than usual this year — and not in a good way. Tobey (in the post below) is wise to wonder about the milk solids in his candy and where they’ve come from, especially judging by this report from Brasscheck. The report is about the U.S. but I wonder how different things are in Canada. Does anyone know?
In China, ANYTHING made with Chinese-manufactured milk powder before September 14th was PULLED from their store shelves.
In the US, this garbage is still being sold!
Foods at risk: ANY food manufactured in China and potentially any food containing milk powder. US food manufacturers imported millions of pounds of milk powder from China before September 14th. The FDA continues to allow to be sold.
This includes chocolate, cookies, cakes, and even things like packaged macaroni and cheese.
Mike Mozart is a product designer who also runs a video blog about new developments in the toy industry.
His reviews are normally light, cheerful affairs and completely apolitical.
If he appears distraught, it’s because he is. This is serious.
Mozart has discovered that the US is the ONLY country that still permits potentially melamine-contaminated food on its shelves. Even China has removed these products from its stores.
That’s right. This poison that killed and injured thousands of people, mainly children, may be in US food. We’re the only country that hasn’t pulled it from its shelves.
Here’s what you need to know
1. Melamine was added to food products manufactured in China to simulate protein content. These food products were imported into the US by the ton.
2. Melamine itself is bad, but much worse – and not reported – is that melamine is an industrial product, not a food product and often comes contaminated with a wide range of dangerous industrial toxins.
There is no such thing as food grade melamine. None of it is suitable for food.
3. The widespread practice of adding melamine to powdered milk products has killed and seriously injured thousands of children in China.
Melamine injuries children by damaging their kidneys. There has already been a reported spike in kidney stones in American children.
Last year, when melamine was found in pet food sold in the US and traced to death in animals, it was headline news.
This news, potentially far more serious, is being censored.
4. The Chinese government knew this contaminated food was on the shelves killing children and said nothing so as not to put a damper on the “Olympic spirit.”
5. As much 20 MILLION POUNDS of food manufactured in China that contains milk powder was imported into the US this year. Also, it’s not clear how many US food manufacturers use milk powder manufactured in China in their products.
6. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) refuses to test for melamine contamination – or it is has, refuses to make the results of these tests available to the public.
Further, the FDA refuses to force food manufacturers to remove the contaminated food from its shelves, something they are completely capable of doing.
7. Why is this being done?
Mozart theorizes: a) to prevent a scandal before the election and b) to avoid further deterioration of the US stock market.
Are these motivations plausible?
Long-time Brasscheck TV viewers know that the FDA has demonstrated over and over again throughout its history that it is a political agency designed to protect well connected law breakers and has next-to-zero interest in the public welfare.
AVOID all food products manufactured in China and any product that contains milk powder that does not disclose its source. (Egg powder is also being identified as a potential source of this contamination.)
