Novelty chocolates containing melamine have been found for sale in Wales.

The chocolates, which were imported from China for sale in sex shops, contained high levels of melamine, the industrial chemical at the heart of the scandal which has seen almost 100,000 children in China fall ill. Four children have died.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has said that the chocolates are unlikely to pose a health risk. However, Spencer and Fleetwood, the UK firm which imported them, has pulled them off the shelves.

Philip Davies, head of public protection for Carmarthenshire Country Council, said: “While not a health risk, the chocolate is being withdrawn from sale. Anyone who has bought any should take it back to the supplier.”
