After the discovery in China of melamine in eggs and milk powder, Shanghai’s Livestock Office will carry out full-scale checks for the chemical in feed used by the aquaculture industry.

The office said that the check will cover more than 100 feed producers and further inspections on seafood will start if the feed given to fish is contaminated.

Melamine was detected in four Chinese brands of eggs this week in Hong Kong and Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province. No illnesses have been reported so far.
