Oct. 1, 2008, Ottawa, Ont. — The Canadian Food Inspection Agency recall of Chinese
products linked to the tainted milk scandal in China continued Tuesday.

The
CFIA is warning people not to consume Lotte brand Koala's March filled
cookies which may contain melamine. The affected products may have been
distributed nationally but there have been no illnesses reported with
the product. The products are manufactured by Lotte China Foods Co.,
Ltd and have been voluntarily recalled.

The recall is part of the
government's investigation into milk and milk-derived products from
China that may have been distributed in Canada.

Advertisment

More than 54,000
children in China have been sickened by tainted milk products and four
deaths have been blamed on the products there.

The CFIA has
issued several warnings about products that may contain melamine, an
industrial chemical that can cause kidney stones and kidney failure.

Canada does not allow its use as a food ingredient.

Other recalls worldwide included Cadbury chocolates, baby cereals, crackers, infant formula, candy and instant coffee.

All codes of the following Lotte brand filled cookies are affected by the new CFIA advisory:
