The Food Standards Agency has issued a Food Alert to confirm that Lucky Dip (Nottingham) Ltd has withdrawn certain batches of their own brand Christmas and Halloween Chocolate Pop products, which have been tested in the UK and found to be contaminated with melamine. The report states that:
The affected products were manufactured in Zhongshan, China, by Le Bang Chocolate Food Company, imported into the UK by Lucky Dip (Nottingham) Ltd and sold to a number of retail outlets in the UK. On 15 October 2008 the European Commission adopted Decision (2008/798/EC) requiring that any products originating in or consigned from China containing milk or milk products as an ingredient should be subject to documentary, identity and physical checks, including laboratory analysis, to determine that any levels of melamine present in the product do not exceed 2.5 mg/kg. Those products with more than 2.5mg/kg will be destroyed. The levels of melamine detected in Lucky Dip (Nottingham) Ltd products were 28.9mg/kg and 46.2mg/kg respectively.
