Chinese companies say sales of eggs have declined
Chinese companies say sales of eggs have declined up to 10% since officials in Hong Kong detected melamine in the product at the weekend, national media reported on Thursday.

Four infants died and thousands more were hospitalized in China in September by melamine-tainted powder milk.

Food safety officials in Hong Kong reported on Saturday that they had found melamine in eggs produced in the northeastern port city of Dalian and in the central Hubei province.

The melamine level of 3.1 milligrams per kg was well above the permitted level of 2.5 milligrams per kg. Further checks revealed that melamine-tainted eggs were also being sold in the eastern Zhejiang province.

According to media reports, the melamine contamination of eggs could be caused by tainted poultry feed. Sanitary officials do not rule out that checks of fish and meat might follow.

"I just don't buy eggs these days. I doubt the ones produced by other companies are safe," the China Daily quoted a resident of Dalian as saying.
