Tests find melamine in 31 Chinese milk brands

An official news organization is reporting that the industrial chemical melamine has been found in another 31 brands of Chinese milk powder.
The results indicate an expansion in the scandal that has sparked product recalls in China and a host of other countries that received Chinese food exports from infant formula to chocolate.
Results of earlier tests had showed widespread melamine contamination among infant formula, later spreading to fresh milk and other types of dried milk and milk products.
The contamination is blamed for the deaths of four children and kidney ailments among 54,000 others.
The State Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine tested samples from 265 brands produced before Sept. 14, the Xinhua News Agency said
