I Found A China-Made!!

Today I am taking some time off to do some ‘checking’ on Angel’s formula, cereals, biscuits, etc just to make sure none of her food is coming from China! I am really concern about the quality of food products and goods with the mark MADE IN CH*NA after the case where toxic industrial chemical Melamine was found not in one but as many as 22 types of milk products in China so far and still adding to the numbers. According to yesterday’s China Press, even furniture MADE IN CH*NA exported to the UK was also found causing 2000 buyers suffers from serious skin problems after contact with the furniture and hospitalized for treatments. I still remember last year there was a huge recalls of FP products due to the toxic paints used in those China-made baby’s toys. I really cannot believe myself now they are actually adding Melamine into babies formulas!!!! What was actually in their mind …. Gosh!!!

Currently Malaysia government has also banned all diaries from China ( but I am not sure whether it’s a recall or just ban for future imports?) What about those products which ware already in the market such as biscuits, ice cream, chocolate, etc which contain milk from China? Luckily after scanning through Angel’s food, I found most of them is from Australia (Heinz) and Indonesia and luckily none of them is China-made (but I am not so sure about those chinese herbs like red dates, etc coz I bought it from the chinese medical shop without proper packaing and labeling). However when I go through my fridge, I found 2 packs of my favourite Wal*s Mini Popper Ice Cream I bought 1 months back were actually Made In China and also contain chinese milk ….. I guess that might contain melamine as well and so sad it has to go into the bin. I just don't want to risk it over some ice cream. I wonders we have been taken so many packs of those mini poppers, will it done bad to our organ already? From now on, I will be selective against what we used and eat which is produced by China coz I really don’t know is there any quality control at all over China made products. How can kilos of Melamine being added into our baby’s formulas for so many years but yet, no one is doing the checking for compliances to food safety regulations until one day, someone dies from food poisoning? Of course I am not saying all China-made food are poisonous but I am really worried and have doubts about their product quality control check for compliances to food safety regulation :( :(

So I really hope all mommies can take some time to scan through all of your bb’s and your family’s food product to avoid consuming those toxic chemicals which was used to make plastics. This is fatal to our human body especially to our young kids so please be more aware and be more selective against food which comes from the Mainland. After these cases, I will think twice before making purchase of any China-made products :(

Hi Mummy Gwen, thanks for the info .... it's really useful :) Ya lor .... they mentioned Magnum ice cream too (from your link) but when I look at the one i've got, it's not made in China so I keep it lo, hehehe :) As for those from China, I will throw it away because I am not going to test them for melamine LoL. As you've said, better be safe then sorry.

It's true Caroline. I'm very ALLERGIC I can say to the word "China".. No offence but I think that most of the things produced by China is of inferior qualities, and caused harm to us too. I think we have to throw away the BABY BITES which I've bought for Ashton as his snacks... Aren't China ashame of themselves for having producing such a thing???

Not only that... some of the feeding bottles, sippy cups and other plastic wares were made from China!

tThe inferior made-in-China products are right for the inferior people in the inferior countries, who cannot afford to buy the quality products from developed world. Ask your own government why they imported such things, and didn't QC.

Thanks for the warning. I better check all my food stuff tonight.

It's so sad to see those innocent child died and sick.

MommyAngel said...

Esmeralda, you are right but sometimes we cannot avoid buying China goods too coz some famous brand like FP were all made in China so we were buying their inventions and ideas rather then the quality :( Can't get both at the same time, too bad and so sad :(

Doreen, oh ya?? I still not check on those feeding bottles and sippy cups yet ..... thanks for the reminder and I think I should check that too just to make sure.

Hi Hai Fang, thanks for dropping by my blog :) You have a nice blog and an 'interesting' life travel around as I can say :) I will drop by your blog again soon for sure :)

Hi Deepblue, I think not only our country but countries all over the world are either importing goods from China (for example Chinese herbs where you can get from no where as) or have their own plant in China, even big brand names which carries a heavy price tag!! We can't really found a country with no China-made goods nowadays after the open market in China because of lower production cost there. For example the FP toys were all made in China, were they cheap?? Oh No!!!!!!! Is Magnum Ice cream cheap? I don't think so ..... that's why I am a bit annoy and feel sad with those price we paid, but we didn't get the quality we expected!! How I wished I can ask our government why they import such goods but I am glad at least our government did not import those China-dame formula (a famous brand in China though) laced with melamine!!!! Thank God for the ban of importing Chinese milk and baby formula nation wide in the year of 1990 :)
