Contaminated Milk Products

It was reported last month that Taiwanese produced instant "milk" coffee under the brand name of Mr. Brown was contaminated with Melamine. Since the FDA and other governments cannot locate and test all brands, it is probably wise to stop drinking all the condensed milk, instant milk coffees and milk teas produced in South East Asia (such as the popular DeDe and Nara Thai ice tea brands, and Singapore's Owl brand) since any number of them may have purchased their milk from China as thousands of multinational food companies source food there. Each individual company has to certify that their milk products are safe and free from melamine contamination before consumers begin to buy their goods again. In fact, I hope food labelling now should move towards the food-source country as well as the country of manufacture.
