Melamine on Sunflower Blueberry Cream Sandwich

Hong Kong’s Center for Food Safety found 3.2 parts per million (ppm) of melamine in the Philippine-made Sunflower Crackers Blueberry Cream Sandwich, exceeding the 2.5 ppm legal limit for melamine in food products.

In that regard, BFAD lawyer Emilio Polig said that all goods manufactured by Croley Foods Manufacturing Corporation (maker of Sunflower Crackers) which contain milk and milk-based ingredients are to undergo melamine testing. Also, BFAD ordered Croley Foods to explain within two days why their Sunflower Crackers Blueberry Cream Sandwich product exported to Hong Kong failed to go through BFAD testing. If found positive for melamine, Croley Foods will face charges for violating Republic Act (RA) 7394, or the Consumer Act of the Philippines, regarding the production of adulterated food products and sub-products.

It was such an alarming news as Sunflower crackers have been a favorite of both kids and adults for snacks. For quite sometime, my kids like eating Butter Cream biscuits which I believed being manufactured by Croley Foods too. I immediately hold the remaining stocks until clearance from BFAD.
