Baby Powder

April 7th, 2009

TalcStill can’t figure out what’s going on with this latest quality issue out of China, but for those who are keeping track of them all:

Korea’s Food and Drug Administration claims that a source of talcum powder in China is contaminated with asbestos.  [Note: Talcum powder is a mineralogical cousin of asbestos (they are both "silicates).]

Chinese authorities have wasted no time in pulling a foreign baby powder from store shelves. The brand is called NUK, and a related link to the story can be found on CCTV.com.
