    I've been reading a ton of articles and, put it this way, it looks like until enough people get sick and die.....our safety is questionable. I mean it can be in macaroni and cheese, on down the line. I just know we don't test our food well anymore at all and find it odd that everyone else has found tainted products and somehow we haven't? Right. A good majority of countries have banned products period from China because of safety issues. We should follow suit because lord knows what damage has already been done.

    This is so despicable. What's more infuriating is that every country including China has taken all the products off the market except the U.S.

    To allow this deliberate attack on children as well as sicken as many Americans as possible without warning us is beyond criminal.

    What do you all think of this guy's idea that the information is being held back because of the election? Plausible? Or total paranoia?

    Plausible. I don't know exactly if it's just the election, but with the economic downfall right now as well......they may not want to ruffle any feathers since China practically owns us. Maybe they don't want the politicians saying anything in their speeches to tick them off with threats of boycotts or bans and stuff.

    This day and age anything is plausible......trust in this government with our best interests is limited. Heck, I'm not so sure this economic blow up wasn't perfectly and strategically planned for some special reason as well.

    The trouble is manufacturers themselves are not really certain where their food ingredients come from. With all the free trade, it may be milk powder or wheat gluten from China or from the US. Looking at the box of Carnation milk powder at the store, it only states that it is distributed by Nestle Corp. of US. Now that is important information.

    Two things that I think give this guy initial credibility with me.

    One, he appears to have accurately sourced many of his statements with the annotations from the news.

    Two, this guy hit the problem with the Mexican peppers right on the head. He is clearly aware of the politics we are aware of that are preventing products, produce, and illegal immigrants from receiving proper scrutiny from our government.

    Melamine Scare In Pirate's Gold Milk Chocolate Coins-Truth!

    Melamine Scare In Pirate's Gold Milk Chocolate Coins-Truth!

    Summary of the eRumor:
    A Halloween warning not to eat Sherwood brand Pirate's Gold milk chocolate coins because they could contain Melamine, a substance that could be toxic.

    The Truth:
    This warning is true in Canada only.
    October 8, 2008 the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) issued a warning that "the public not to consume, distribute, or sell the Sherwood Brands Pirate's Gold Milk Chocolate Coins described below. This product is being recalled due to positive test results for melamine conducted by the CFIA."

    Melamine is an industrial chemical compound that some Chinese milk-based product manufacturers have added to their products in an attempt to artificially inflate the reading for protein levels. Chronic exposure to melamine can cause a number of severe health issues including bladder or kidney stones, acute kidney failure, reproductive damage, respiratory irritation and bladder cancer.

    Because the Pirate's Gold chocolate coins are only marketed in Canada, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not issued a recall. Melamine is a real health threat, however, and the FDA has posted a general warning about this substance found in food products imported from China. Click for FDA Warning

    On October 24, 2008, the Sherwood company issued a statement on their website regarding their "commitment to test and assure the safety of all our products", and "Immediately upon the issuance of a warning by FDA about possible melamine contamination in milk-containing products from China we began to work with independent labs to confirm our products are free of melamine".

    Can anyone tell us if Sherwood Brands Pirate's Gold Milk Chocolate Coins are sold in the US.

    If so, why would said coins contain the toxin in Canada and not in America.

    Would the more likely truth be that the are not being recalled in America but are in Canada?

    So they have 40% of our debt, big friggin deal..what are they going to do if we tick them off? Call in our debts? And if we can't pay, what the ----are they going to do? I'm sick and tired of this government bowing to what the Chinese tells them to bow to..spineless jackasses.
