    This is the second case of plastic contamination in a very large mass market product in a week.

    The first was in a pill for children.

    This leads to the question is this really the case of a machine malfunction or is there a source for the base materials for both of these products that is using plastic material in it to boost the minimums in that base material to pass some industry test for protein like happened in China with baby formula.

    In that case numerous infant children died.

    We cannot allow this kind of plastic contamination of food sources to go unpunished.

    And this needs to be investigated.

    NO industry can be believed when incidents like this come up-an outside,unconnected investigation has to be started and seen to it’s impartial conclusion.

    Before children start dying.
