FDA warns consumers not to drink instant coffee made in China because it may be tainted with melamine. They specifically mention one brand, the hilariously-unappetizing-souding Mr. Brown. [MSNBC]

    Damn, I actually like Mr. Brown. I sometimes pick up a few when I’m by the Asian market.

    Joke if you must, but Mr. Brown is AWESOME.

    I drank Mr. Brown…I guess no more. Hopefully my kidneys aren’t irretrievably damaged already.

    I prefer Mr. Sparkle.

  5. Brontide says:

    I love it… they recommend that you not drink it because it could contain a toxin. Why haven’t they recalled it? or started testing it?

    glad i don’t buy premade asian coffee products. passed them by many times at the market, just didn’t have the hankering for it. guess i lucked out.

    its amazing how this chinese poison train keeps chugging along!

    The Mr. Brown coffee brand appears to have pictures of corrupt Chinese officials on the cans, too.

    Crap, Mr. Brown is good stuff! Guess I’ll have to cut back.

    @snowmoon: It says quite clearly in the article that Mr. Brown is being recalled and that:

    “As of Thursday, FDA testing of milk-based products imported into the United States from China had not found any melamine contamination, an agency statement said.”
