Chinese Vitamins Contaminated with Acid.....

Rockville, MD-Adding to growing concerns about the safety of products imported into the United States from other countries, the FDA announced today that virtually all Chinese produced vitamins are contaminated with acid.

"This is just a scary, scary discovery and I truly hope that a recall is enough to prevent any injury to American consumers," FDA spokesperson Carla Hamburger revealed. "So far we've discovered measurable levels of ascorbic acid, folic acid and pantothenic acid, as well as a number of metals such as iron, copper, zinc and nickel. Who knows what we'll find next!"

A number of the recalled Chinese vitamins are marketed to children, something that has one mother outraged. "Someone really should do something about China," Joan Vandervort, community activist and mother of three explained. "Those communist fat cats have dominated the world economy at our expense for far too long!"
