CFIA warns that Mr. Brown instant coffee could contain melamine

Sep 23, 2008

TORONTO — For the second time this week, China's tainted milk scandal has reached Canadian supermarket shelves.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning that certain types of Mr. Brown 3-in-1 instant coffee are being recalled because they might contain melamine, a chemical often used in plastics.

The CFIA said in a statement Tuesday that the instant coffee products were initially recalled in Taiwan and that their Canadian importer, Thai Indochine Trading Inc., is following suit after melamine was discovered in batches of powdered milk at several major dairies throughout China.

The contamination has killed four babies in China so far and sickened nearly 53,000 others.

The three coffee blends, sold in 450 gram packages containing 30 bags of 15 grams each, were sold in British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba. They have not been linked to any illnesses.

On Sunday, the CFIA issued a similar warning for Nissin Cha Cha Dessert, a product sold in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia.

The products involved in Tuesday's announcement are:
- Instant Coffee 3-in-1 Mandheling Blend Coffee with a universal product code of 4 710085 122523;
- Instant Coffee 3-in-1 Blue Mountain Blend Coffee with a UPC 4 710085 200597
- Instant Coffee 3-in-1 Arabica Coffee with a UPC 4 710085 122509
