Chinese Executive Pleads Guilty in Melamine Case

Tian Wenhua, the 66-year-old chairwoman of Sanlu Group, a Chinese dairy company, pleaded guilty to charges of "producing and selling fake or substandard products."  It is unclear at present whether she and her accused colleagues could face the death penalty.

Melamine, an industrial compound used in making plastic chairs, countertops, plates, flame retardants and even concrete, has been added to food in China, including pet food and baby formula, to cheat nutrition tests due to its high nitrogen content.  Several different foods in the United States have tested positive for melamine.
