Melamine consumption

Postbag and some respondents seem to have lost sight of the issue with the melamine threat. Beneficial or not, a large number of people in Thailand drink milk and eat foods with dairy content. These people have been exposed to the chemical melamine which is a proven health risk in sufficient quantities, and the question is: has the Thai government acted in a manner that protects these consumers?

The answer to this seems quite obvious in that there has been almost no information on what products have been tested or banned, if any, and the fact that the website that the Thai FDA referred consumers to with questions about melamine, contains no mention of melamine at all.

In a case like this it would be helpful if news organisations stepped in, and while there have been hard-hitting editorials and good coverage of the business side of the problem, there has been virtually no help for consumers.

If anyone knows where helpful information for the consumer exists, it would be good if they sent that to Postbag, rather than continuing with the back and forth commentary on the benefits of milk.
