Melamine and Cyanuric Acid Detection in 5 Minutes using LC–MS
March 02, 2009
Since September 2008, 294 000 infants and young children suffered urinary problems as a result of the contamination of melamine in infant milk powder and were hospitalized. This hospitalization was required to treat the symptoms caused by the ingestion of melamine contaminated infant formula and related dairy products. Previously in 2007, pet food, animal feed wheat gluten and other protein-based foods were found to contain residues of melamine and its degradation product cyanuric acid.
