FDA Detects Melamine in Flavored Drink
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has increased inspections and product testing efforts in response to the melamine contamination problem which originated in Chinese dairy products. As a result, the agency has detected melamine contamination in Blue Cat Flavor Drinks.
The distributor of the product, Tristar Food Wholesale Co. Inc., initiated a recall of several flavors of Blue Cat Flavor Drink, based on the FDA's findings. FDA advises the public not to consume this product and recommends that retailers and food service operators remove the product from sale or service.
To date, the FDA is not aware of any illnesses in the United States stemming from consumption of Blue Cat Flavor Drinks. Individuals who have experienced any health problems after consuming Blue Cat Flavor Drinks are advised to contact their health care professional.
