U.S. officials find trace of melamine in baby formula
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. health officials have uncovered trace amounts of the chemical melamine in one sample of infant formula sold in the United States, a Food and Drug Administration spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

The amount found in the sample was no cause for concern, said FDA spokeswoman Judy Leon said. "There's no basis for concern because we're talking about trace levels that are so low ... that there's absolutely no risk," she told Reuters.

Melamine-tainted formula was found earlier this year in China, where thousands of children fell ill and several died.

This makes me angry. Why are they not recalling this stuff? How can they say that there is no risk involved, after all these kids got sick earlier in the year? I don't care if there is a "trace amount", babies' systems are too vulnerable to be tested like this. How can they know for sure that no one is going to get sick from this?
