FDA Detains Chinese-made Food

Burden of proof now with Chinese manufacturers

The US FDA issued an order which allows districts to detain all foodstuff containing milk and milk products imported from China:
  • All milk products
  • All milk derived ingredients
  • Finished food products containing milk

Importers much prove then that the detained products do not contain melamine before they can be released, shifting the burden of proof to the manufacturer.
