White Rabbit Creamy Candy is being hastily pulled from store shelves all over the world after tests found traces of melamine in the popular candy.
Melamine is an industrial additive used to make plastics and fertilizers. Its high nitrogen content often fools tests that measure protein levels, so it is sometimes used illegally in dairy and other food products. Contaminated White Rabbit Creamy Candy was found at two stores in New Haven, Connecticut.
Melamine-tainted White Rabbit Creamy Candy has been recalled in Britain, parts of the United States and several Asian countries.
