Hong Kong found eggs imported from northeastern China
contaminated with high levels of melamine, the chemical that was found early in
milk infant formula sickening more than 50,000 children and killed at least
The finding worries health officials that melamine may be
present in a wide variety of feed contaminating a range of dairy and meat
Feeds for pets made in China were
found tainted with this chemical last year.
The Center for Food Safety announced the discovery of
contaminated eggs in Hong Kong Saturday and said that eggs came from a farm in
the city of Dalian in northeastern China.
The level of melamine in the tainted eggs was almost
twice as high as the legal limit for food sold in Hong Kong.
