China Central Television (CCTV) reported that the melamine tableware produced by some manufacturers in Hebei and Guangdong provinces in China contained banned, raw material, urea-formaldehyde resin, which may release formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, in water and damage the health of consumers.

Melamine tableware, also known as imitation ceramic in China, is tableware that is widely used in restaurants and by families.

Meanwhile, a store in the Shaxi International Hotel in Panyu, Guangzhou City, is reportedly selling the kind of melamine tableware that releases formaldehyde. The manufacturers that produce this harmful product are either operating without a permit, or with a permit, but violating the rules.

It is reported that when the Quality Supervision Bureau of Hebei Province inspected the goods produced by 20 factories, it found the formaldehyde content of the goods to be above the allowable limit at 17 of the sites. Thus, the failure rate was greater than 80 percent.

About 70 percent of the melamine tableware sold by the Shaxi International Hotel store was found to contain too much formaldehyde.

The report said that tableware for children accounts for the highest percent of sales of this type of tableware because it is colorful and doesn’t break easily.
