Sherwood Brands Pirate’s Gold Milk Chocolate Coins may be Contaminated with Melamine
by Bob Ewing Digital Journal

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is warning the public not to consume, distribute, or sell the Sherwood Brands Pirate?s Gold Milk Chocolate Coins, product is being recalled due to positive test results for melamine conducted by the CFIA.

There is no word if these are the same chocolates as those sold under the Sherwood brand in the USA.

I’m not one to be an extremist and make broad proclamations but at this moment I would stay far away from any Chinese product that contains any milk products.

It is starting to look like any form of protein from China may be suspect. Eggs, meat… 

Chinese melamine scandal widens—http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7701477.stm


“The problem widened last weekend when the authorities in Hong Kong reported that melamine had also been detected in Chinese eggs.

Four brands of eggs have since been found to be contaminated, and agriculture officials speculate that the cause was probably melamine-laced feed given to hens.”
