The recall of melamine-contaminated milk from China has now extended to several products made with milk. After a creamy candy from White Rabbit tested positive for the melamine, officials from Singapore have banned the import of all milk products such as yogurt, yogurt bars, and ice cream. The ban also includes products consumers might not relate to the contaminated milk such as chocolate, biscuits and other candy that have a milk ingredient. The contamination apparently is effecting products from various companies all across Asia, including Starbucks, Nissin Foods and Nestle.
The number of reported infants who have become ill and have been hospitalized due to the contaminated milk has now risen to almost 13,000.
