The scandal began with complaints over milk powder by Sanlu Group Co. -- one of China's best-known and most respected brands. But it quickly became a much larger problem as government tests found that one-fifth of the companies producing baby milk powder had melamine in their products.
Melamine is a toxic industrial chemical that can cause kidney stones and lead to kidney failure. It has no nutritional value but is high in nitrogen, making products with it appear higher in protein. Suppliers trying to cut costs are believed to have added it to watered-down milk to cover up the resulting protein deficiency.
I got jolted about the milky thing and I decided not to buy, eat and drink when it comes to China products. When I was young I love to eat white rabbit especially the "inside" wrapper that melts in your tongue. If that scandal was not testified by the press, I would still consider eating that candy. It was reported earlier that even White Rabbit candy has a melamine that could trigger your kidney to fail.
