British candy maker Cadbury has recalled 11 types of its Chinese-made chocolate as a precaution, the Hong Kong government said, becoming the latest foreign company affected by China's tainted milk scandal.
Cadbury Asia Pacific told the Hong Kong government's Center for Food Safety the chocolates were made in Cadbury's factory in the Chinese capital Beijing, the Hong Kong government said in a statement. It was not immediately clear if tests found the industrial chemical melamine in the products.
The recalled products included:
Cadbury Dark Chocette 45g

Cadbury Eclairs 180g
Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate 150g Pumpkin
