What is melamine? Melamine is an organic compound that is often combined with formaldehyde to produce melamine resin, a synthetic polymer which is fire resistant and heat tolerant. Melamine resin is a very versatile material with a highly stable structure. Uses for melamine include whiteboards, floor tiles, kitchenware, fire retardant fabrics, and commercial filters. Melamine can be easily molded while warm, but will set into a fixed form. This property makes it ideally suited to certain industrial applications.

What should I know about melamine in baby formula? In the late 2000s, the toxic chemical melamine came to the attention of much of the world, due to actions in China. Over 50,000 infants were sickened and some deaths occurred because China had high levels of melamine in baby formula, which was intentionally added as a means of increasing formula nutritional value.

listen)) is an organic base and a trimer of cyanamide, with a 1,3,5-triazine skeleton. Like cyanamide, it contains 66% nitrogen by mass and, if mixed with resins, has fire retardant properties due to its release of nitrogen gas when burned or charred, and has several other industrial uses. Melamine is also a metabolite of cyromazine, a pesticide. It is formed in the body of mammals who have ingested cyromazine.[2] It has been reported that cyromazine can also be converted to melamine in plants.[3][4]

Melamine milk crisis

Countries to ensure safe feeding for infants and increase vigilance


26 September 2008, Geneva/Rome – The World Health Organization (WHO) and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) are urging affected countries to ensure safe feeding of millions of infants following the ongoing melamine milk crisis in China. The two agencies also called on countries to be alert to the possible spread of melamine-contaminated dairy products.

Overview: Melamine contamination of dairy products in China


Since this issue first came to the attention of international organizations on 11 September 2008, the Joint FAO/WHO International Food Safety Authorities Network (INFOSAN) has been in close contact with the Chinese authorities to obtain the most up-to-date information on the situation and relay the same to national food safety authorities on this food safety crisis, one of the largest in recent years. During this period, the Chinese Authorities have been very active in addressing the problem and providing regular communications on the evolving situation.

MELAMINE On Human Health Effects:

September 26, 2008 by simonbwidjanarko


Evidence for Carcinogenicity:
Evaluation: There is inadequate evidence in humans for the carcinogenicity of melamine. There is sufficient evidence in experimental animals for the carcinogenicity of melamine under conditions in which it produces bladder calculi. Overall evaluation: In making the overall evaluation, the Working Group noted that a non-DNA reactive mechanism by which melamine produced urinary bladder tumors in male rats occurred only under conditions in which calculi were produced. Melamine is not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity to humans (Group 3).

Rapid and unambiguous identification of melamine in contaminated pet food based on mass spectrometry with four degrees of confirmation.

Abstract
A method for analyzing pet food without sample processing is described for rapid identification of melamine based on mass spectrometry (MS) using soft ionization by direct analysis in real time (DART) to provide accurate measurement of mass and isotope-peak intensities, in-source collisionally activated dissociation (CAD) fragmentation, and determination of active hydrogens. Usually, MS analyses based on other than electron ionization (EI) spectra can be suspect because of the limited amount of information provided by a single mass spectral peak (or very few peaks). In such cases, additional degrees of confirmation are desirable to increase confidence in the experimental results.
