More chocolate woes, you know I think I’m going to give up chocolate all together. Between all the recalls on the melamine laced products and the fact that even here in the US, you don’t get real cocoa butter anymore in some of the products from Hersheys, but yet we get these reports that chocolate can be good for us, I’m guessing it’s the real thing that has health benefits?
Every consumable product and drug made in the world should show labels of where the product was made. I suggested this to Google in their contest on things that can make a difference and hopefully this will be one of them as we need cooperation world wide for this to take place, and those that do not, well they can be embargoed, that simple, so no labels, no sale and this way we don’t have to wait until the manufacturer let’s us know where the product came from, as a few more may die or get sick in the waiting process.

A Cadbury spokesman said it was too early to say how much of the chemical was in the chocolates made at its Beijing plant, and another company official said the factory was responsible for only 0.5 percent of global sales and supplies Australia, Taiwan, Nauru, Hong Kong and Christmas Island.
Another Cadbury spokesman, reached through the company's London office, said there was no the contaminated chocolate could find its way into other countries because the factory only supplies Australia, Taiwan, Nauru, Hong Kong and Christmas Island.
"That factory in Beijing only exports to those markets. It's only a small factory," a Cadbury spokesman said. He refused to give his name and refused to explain why he would not give his name for publication.
