South Korean biscuits banned from online sales

ONLINE stores at Taobao.com and other websites in China have stopped selling imported Orion-brand products after the South Korean Food and Drug Administration found excessive melamine in them.

Two brands of the Seoul-based Orion Group' "Gao Xiao Mei" and "Hao Duo Yu" biscuits are among 12 products banned from six companies in South Korea, Shanghai Morning Post reported today.

They are made and sold in South Korea, not mainland China. All products made in China are safe, the Orion Group said. However, the two brands are popular in online stores.

All the 12 brands contained excessive amounts of melamine after using a food additive from a factory in Spain.

The products have been banned in South Korea as the additive contains 8.4-21.9ppm melamine where the legal level is 2.5ppm.
