More kidney stone cases found
(10-17 20:28)

Two more local children were diagnosed with kidney problems related to melamine contaminated dairy products today.

The ninth case involves an eight-year-old girl living in Tuen Mun. A renal stone of about 4.5mm was found in her right kidney.

The 10th case involves a 22-month-old boy living in Tseung Kwan O. He passed pinkish urine in August. On October 9, his mother found a blood stain about the size of a rice grain in his diaper, likely to be a kidney stone.

A subsequent ultrasound examination did not reveal any stones.

Meanwhile one additional food sample was found unsatisfactory in the Centre for Food Safety test. Confectionery Expert strawberry flavor cream malt biscuits (85.5g with the expiry date on August 28, 2009) contains 3.2ppm of melamine.
