After the big melamine-in-milk-powder scare of the summer, this week brought word that melamine has been discovered in some eggs sold by a certain Dalian-based company. Hong Kong ordered Chinese eggs off the shelves and the chairman of the company involved was all over TV yesterday apologizing and saying that his company never put any melamine in their eggs. Well, someone put it there! Today the story broke that melamine is routinely added to animal feed here to make it appear higher in protein!!!
Does this mean it's time to stop eating eggs? And chicken? And beef? And pork? Good grief, maybe it's time to consider a strictly imported pop-tart diet. No, wait a minute, that's a dangerous thing to do as well!!!
