Chinese officials have detained two managers from the two companies that exported melamine contaminated wheat flour. (As mentioned previously, these companies were actually selling tainted wheat flour, but representing it as wheat gluten and rice protein concentrate.)
I hope this actually signals a change in China, but they have a long way to go. Spiking ingredients with melamine isn’t uncommon. In the news today, Chinese farmed catfish are being banned in Mississippi because they tested positive for two banned antibiotics—ciprofloxacin and enrofloxacin.
