Melamine found in Japan in egg powder, fried chicken, and chicken feed. What next??

by Larry Geller

Egg powder is often used to flavor pastries, cooked pasta and confectionery products.

Mitsui imported 20 tons of Chinese egg powder in September, most of which was sold to Q.P. Egg Corp., a unit of Japanese mayonnaise maker Q.P. Corp., the company said. [Taiwan News (AFP), Japan finds melamine in Chinese egg powder, 10/18/2008]

In Japan, Kewpie Mayonnaise is ubiquitous. It’s the most popular brand of mayonnaise and is found not only in salads but even on pizzas and fried foods. When Japanese people have been abroad for a time, they go for the Kewpie as soon as they return home. It’s everywhere. Now enhanced with Chinese melamine.
