From the UK Food Standards Agency:

The Food Standards Agency is today alerting the public about a brand of biscuits from China on sale in the UK that have been found to contain low levels of melamine (4.98 mg/kg).

Batches of 49g packets of Koala brand biscuits manufactured by Lotte China Foods Co. are being withdrawn from sale and their destruction arranged by local authorities. The product has been distributed to Chinese supermarkets and other independent retailers across the UK.

All products from China containing more than 15% milk as an ingredient, or products where the percentage of milk content cannot be established, are currently subject to documentary, identity and physical checks, including laboratory analysis, to determine that any levels of melamine present in the product do not exceed 2.5 mg/kg. Those products with more than 2.5mg/kg will be destroyed.
