Is there any poison in the melamine tableware?
Not long ago, CCTV exposed some companies that use melamine tableware to produce raw materials containing carcinogens. Among them, Dongguan “Heshun” and “Jinbao” products were exposed. Yesterday morning, the reporter visited some supermarkets in the city and found that the supermarkets sold a variety of melamine tableware, various brands, sales are also good, although not seen the products exposed, but at the same time the reporter also found that many melamine tableware did not QS logo, or the logo is unclear.
Imitation porcelain tableware sold fire
Yesterday morning, the reporter visited several large supermarkets in the urban area and some small shops selling street products in the street. They found that all kinds of melamine tableware were dazzling, occupying half of the tableware shelves, and many people buying melamine tableware.
In a supermarket in Chunliu South Road, Zhang Ayi, who is picking a small bowl for her grandson, told the reporter: "The children in the neighbors use this small bowl, and they are not bad, but they look good." According to the supermarket sales staff, the melamine tableware style Diverse, easy to clean, strong and resistant to falling, very popular with consumers.
The reporter saw in the interview that only a small part of the melamine tableware was marked with a suitable temperature, with the QS mark, and a considerable part of the melamine tableware was written with the name of the factory and the site.
Consumer awareness is low
Do consumers know that inferior melamine tableware may contain news about carcinogens? Do you know how to identify and properly use melamine tableware? The reporter interviewed 15 consumers randomly.
It was found that consumers who used melamine tableware at home accounted for 60%, and only 5 people heard about the news, and none of the 15 consumers interviewed knew how to distinguish melamine tableware.
The reporter learned on the Internet that melamine tableware is a tableware similar in appearance to porcelain made of melamine resin. However, there are more inferior melamine tableware made of urea-formaldehyde resin instead of melamine resin. This kind of tableware is afraid of burning fire. After burning with a lighter, the exterior paint film of the imitation porcelain will obviously foam. In the microwave oven, it is very likely that melamine will be produced and migrated into the food by the appliance, thereby causing harm to the human body.
Look for the "QS" logo
Subsequently, the reporter interviewed the relevant departments by telephone.
A staff member of the Trade and Industry Bureau said that he has not received any documents from the higher authorities regarding the investigation and handling of melamine tableware, but the bureau will strengthen the supervision of melamine tableware in the field of market circulation. Consumers who report the sale of inferior melamine tableware on the market can report directly to the industry and commerce department or complain to the consumer association.
According to the Quality Supervision Bureau, there are no enterprises producing melamine tableware in the city. However, for the melamine tableware sold in the supermarket, the Municipal Quality Supervision Bureau reminds consumers to purchase the products first, and must first look for the QS mark (nationally certified Quality and safety signs), pay attention to view the manufacturer and other information, and second, pay attention to see the material, instructions for use and other relevant information when purchasing.
So how do you identify the melamine tableware that you have used? According to the Quality Supervision Bureau, for the melamine tableware that has been used at home, you can first observe whether the tableware has cracks, slag, blackening, black spots or flower spots. If the above phenomenon occurs, the manufacturer is producing melamine. When you use tableware, you may have added scrap or illegal materials. It is recommended not to use them again.
