Kraft and Mars are investigating claims by the Indonesian government that products including Oreos, M&Ms, and Snickers imported from China are tainted with melamine, PerthNow reports. The company notes that the products tested melamine-free elsewhere in Asia, and suggests that they could be counterfeit. Still, the firms are supporting a recall. Meanwhile, Cadbury is pulling 11 chocolate products from Hong Kong shelves, the BBC reports.
Cadbury officials didn’t specify whether the chocolates had been found to contain melamine, but said their tests "cast doubt on the integrity of a range of our products manufactured in China." “We appeal to the public to stop consuming the chocolate products concerned,” says a food safety official.
