Melamine

The word "melamine" became famous overnight when one of the well-trusted big company milk at China was suspected having this substance. Then it's followed that milk containing this substance can actually causes dead for baby. This phenomena really causes a big BANG when it's finally published widely in the press.

Melamine definition as quoted from Wikipedia

"Melamine is an organic base and a trimer of cyanamide, with a 1,3,5-triazine skeleton. Like cyanamide, it contains 66% nitrogen by mass and, if mixed with resins, has fire retardant properties due to its release of nitrogen gas when burned or charred, and has several other industrial uses."

Now, anything containing Melamine is strictly "ban" from displaying at the counter in every supermarket. How odd it is when I went shopping with my grandma at Boulevard and found this...

Melamine WARE?!


No play-play.... M.E.L.A.M.I.N.E. No spelling mistake. On display right in the middle for all customer to see.




Wondering what is it?







I wonder if anyone is going to buy it...
