Vietnam: no melamine in animal feed

No melamine has been found in farm animal feed in Vietnam, a senior officer of the Vietnam Cattle Breeding Agency (CBA) said on Tuesday.

However, head of the Cattle Breeding Agency Hoang Kim Giao warned local consumers about Chinese eggs illegally imported into the country.

News about Chinese eggs containing melamine began to be spread on the Internet last week by Hong Kong media. Chinese eggs have reportedly been smuggled across the border. Consumers will find it difficult to differentiate between Chinese and Vietnamese eggs, an official of the Lang Son Veterinary Agency said.
