Cadbury recalls chocolates with same poison as pet food


If we learned nothing from poisoned pets, will anything positive come of the latest Chinese tainted food scare, which has already killed four babies, sickened 54,000? The latest to fall is the iconic, delightful Cadbury chocolate bar. Cadbury announced today that it's recalling chocolates made in China because tests show they contain melamine, a component of anti-freeze.

USAToday reports that the candy made in China was to be sold in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Australia. Cadbury emphasized to the BBC that only the chocolates made in Beijing and sold in those countries were tainted.

So that means it probably doesn't impact your Cadbury Dairy Milk at your local Walgreen's. This time. But for me at least having the possibility that my beloved Cadbury bar poisoned was especially scary. Even if the ones sold here don't have the bad ingredient, I would guess that's more a product of shipping arrangements than more care.
