A chemical that sickened and killed babies in China when it tainted baby formula can also leach off of tableware and into food, a new small study suggests. However, researchers said, that does not prove the compound, called melamine, is harmful to kids and adults in the amounts detected when study participants ate hot soup from melamine bowls. In high enough quantities, melamine can cause kidney stones and other kidney problems in adults as well.
