Melamine found in cocoa products

March 5, 2009 by  

Melamine has been uncovered in some cocoa productsThe FDA may have stated that melamine is safe in small doses, but food manufacturers seem to be playing it safe and recalling tainted products.

Melamine, a toxic chemical that has been linked to kidney problems, was discovered in G&J Gourmet Market cocoa products, according to parent company Dorsey Marketing Inc.

The items, which are sold in the U.S. at Big Lots and Shopko, have not caused any known injuries, the firm stated in a news release on the FDA’s website.

"No injuries have been reported and only a few samples have, in fact, been found to include melamine," the statement reads.

The products in question include G&J Hot Cocoa Stuffer, G&J His and Hers Hot Cocoa Set and certain flavors of G&J Cocoa.

Earlier this year, melamine was responsible for sickening and killing babies in China who were consuming the chemical through their baby formula.

There have also been trace amounts found in U.S. baby formula, but the FDA insists that doses are too low to cause any harm to infants.
