An industrial contaminant was discovered in samples from more than 20 companies who manufacturer powdered baby milk. Yemen, Bangladesh, and Myanmar received products from one of those companies as reported by the Chinese state television.
More than 6000 babies became sick and three infants died before Chinese officials started an official investigation. According the the Food and Drug Administration, it is highly unlikely any of the tainted products from China made it to the U.S.
The culprit, melamine, a nitrogen based compound and extremely toxic, caused liver failure in 160 infants already. This is the substance which was also found in pet food exported to the U.S. and Canada, killing hundreds of cats and dogs who consumed the food.
