Philippine Daily Inquirer First Posted 02:17:00 09/30/2008 MANILA, Philippines—Cadbury chocolates have been removed from shelves in Hong Kong after tests “cast doubt” on their safety. British chocolate maker Cadbury on Monday became the latest foreign company to be hit by China’s tainted milk scandal, ordering a recall of its Chinese-made products. In Manila, the Department of Health Monday announced that it was expanding the list of banned milk and milk products to include those not necessarily manufactured in China, but were using milk-based ingredients coming from that country. We will make sure that the list will be forthcoming and this will be longer each day,” Health Secretary Francisco Duque III told lawmakers at the House subcommittee hearing on his agency’s proposed budget for 2009. Cadbury said in a statement issued by its Singapore office Monday that tests had “cast doubt on the integrity of a range of our products manufactured in China.” t was not immediately clear whether the tests established the presence of the industrial chemical melamine. But Cadbury said it had recalled 11 chocolate products made at its factory in Beijing, which were distributed in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Australia. Hong Kong’s government ordered that the chocolates be immediately removed from shelves. China’s recent food safety scandal started with the discovery of melamine in baby milk powder. Four deaths have been blamed on melamine-laced milk, and some 54,000 children have developed kidney stones or other illnesses after drinking the contaminated baby formula.
Two US food makers were, meanwhile, investigating Indonesian claims that high traces of melamine had been found in Chinese-made Oreos, M&Ms and Snickers, but stressed the same goods had tested negative in other Asian countries.
