Saizeriya pizzas contained toxic chemical melamine
I hope none of you out there have been eating a lot of Saizeriya pizza lately:
A Japanese restaurant chain served small amounts of the toxic chemical melamine in its pizza due to powdered milk imported from China, the health ministry said Monday.
Saizeriya detected the chemical – which is behind a global health scare that has sickened thousands of babies in China – in dough from pizzas served at branches in northern and eastern Japan on October 1 and 2.
The amount was small and should not harm diners, a ministry official said, adding that there were no reports of people falling sick.
