The China Syndrome: Yili Milk Found in USA - Recalled

Hua Xia Food Trade USA, Inc. (Flushing, NY) has recalled all codes and lots of two Yili brand milk drinks, after FDA testing detected melamine in the beverages. Yili was one of the three major Chinese dairy companies implicated in the melamine-adulteration scandal.

The recalled items are described as follows:

  • YILI Brand Sour Milk Drink is packaged in 250ml flexible paperboard boxes with blue, red and green Chinese writing. There is a picture of an Asian man in a green shirt and white tie clapping his hands on the face of the box. 
  • YILI Brand Pure Milk Drink packaged in 250ml flexible paperboard boxes with black, red and white writing, the writing on the package is in both English and Chinese. There is a picture of two cows playing basketball on the face of the box. 

The milk drinks were distributed in New York City through Asian retail grocery stores.

Once again, all lots and date codes of these two beverages have been recalled. These items should be returned to the store for a full refund. Under no circumstances should these milk drinks be consumed – especially by children.

Consumers with questions about this recall may call Hua Xia Food Trade USA at (917) 216-0575.
