Chinese Parents Warned Of Triple Health Scare

Chinese parents have been warned to be on the lookout for 'poisonous baby bottles, toxic children's clothes and unsafe toys' by health authorities, according to a report in the Shanghai Daily.

This alert was issued after health officials were reportedly scouring supermarkets for baby bottles 'that may have been made from recycled compact discs.' Two years ago at least 13 babies died in China from fake baby powder.

The newspaper said that the current scare was announced after the bottles, which were first discovered in a spot check in supermarkets were found to contain twice the legal limit of hydroxybenzene. This chemical dissolves in heated milk and causes liver and kidney damage.

The paper added that three factories, which used recycled plastic, have been closed down.
