Melamine taint prompts recalls in Sth Korea

Nestle and Mars branded snacks made in China have been recalled in South Korea after melamine was detected in samples.

The Korea Food and Drug Administration says the industrial chemical has been found in M&M’s and Snickers peanut Fun Size, both produced by Mars in China.

Kit Kat bars from Nestle were also found carrying melamine, bringing the total number of melamine-detected items to 10 in Seoul.

The report doesn’t mention whether the amounts of melamine detected were at dangerous levels, but given the deaths and illnesses in China recalls are a sensible precaution.
