Food: One of the basic physiological needs, as outlined according to Maslow's theory of needs, that have to be satisfied before higher needs like social needs and esteem can be recognised.

Today, food has taken on a new image. People no longer consume foods to fufil their basic physiological needs...

Final Phase for release of recalled China Milk Products

From: AVA

The Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) has completed batch-testing of the products in the remaining categories - biscuits and crackers, liquid milk, ice-cream, and milk and whey protein products, under the planned phased release of recalled China milk products.

With the exception of six (6) biscuit products that tested positive for melamine, products in these categories have cleared the pre-release testing and will be released for sale with immediate effect.

The six biscuit products contaminated with melamine are:
i) Baby Looney Tunes Cream Filled Biscuits Assorted Family Pack ( 4.46 - 7.08 ppm of melamine detected)

ii) C & OK Vigour 888 Egg & Milk (Not detected - 40 ppm of melamine detected)
iii) Khong Guan Mini Burger Biscuit Bulk Pack (0.31 - 6.77 ppm of melamine detected)

This product is intended for re-export and is not available in the retail market.

iv) Liluo Fruit P.D. Almond Flavor (4.15 - 11 ppm of melamine detected)

v) Potter Potato Chips Pizza (6.57 - 6.91 ppm of melamine detected)
vi) Tom & Jerry Cheese Balls (29.23 - 33.85 ppm of melamine detected)

The China-made biscuits listed above have been recalled since 19 September 2008 and will be destroyed under AVA’s supervision. This brings the total number of affected China milk products to 22.
AVA would like to assure the public that the levels of melamine detected in the affected products are low and hence unlikely to result in any adverse health effect. Consumers have to consume large quantities of the contaminated products over a prolonged period of time to be at risk of potential ill effects on health.
