melamine

Melamine: Is it what's for dinner?

Remember melamine?  That was the substance found in the baby formula that resulted in over 54,000 children becoming sick and some dying and was also the substance that was found to be at fault in the 2007 pet food scandal.  (The pet food scandal entered the domestic food chain as chickens and pigs fed melamine ended up in the American food chain.) 

What is Melamine?

Our Home Grown Melamine Problem

 

My solution to all scary agricultural news is to buy local and to buy organic. I understand that this is classicist, but my guilt is outweighed by my belief that it offers me a modicum of safety from things, like, the melamine scare.
