HONG KONG—Melamine is used in pesticides in China and may have been in the food chain for a long time, Reuters reported.

"So it is not just in milk products, but also in farm products and animal feed, fish diet," Chan King-ming, associate professor of biochemistry at the Chinese University, told Reuters.
