Summary:

Follow-up tests of U.S.-made infant formula showed two new containers of formula to have traces of melamine (or a byproduct of it, cyanuric acid), which had been implicated in a Chinese infant-formula scandal. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration updated its response to a FOIA request from the Associated Press.
