Blue Cat Yogurt Drinks Found to Contain Melamine

Posted on Oct 03, 2008

On October 3, 2008, Tristar Food Wholesale of Jersey City, New Jersey, announced that Chinese-made yogurt drinks called Blue Cat Flavor Drink, or Lanmao, have been found to contain melamine.  These drinks are sold nationwide at Asian grocery stores and come in several fruit flavors, including strawberry, orange, pineapple and peach.  Melamine first came to the attention of U.S. consumers last year, when it touched off a massive pet food recall. Chinese suppliers of bulk pet food ingredients were found to have been adding the chemical to artificially boost the protein readings of their products. Thousands of pets here were sickened, and hundreds are believed to have died.  Melamine is harmful to the kidneys. It can cause kidney stones as the body tries to eliminate it, and in extreme cases, life-threatening kidney failure.
