VOORHEESVILLE, N.Y. — Cole and Sydney Scheels represent the human face of growing U.S. concern over the safety of food imported from China.
The two young children, two of three triplets, recently became seriously ill with salmonella poisoning attributed to snack food containing tainted Chinese ingredients
Their parents, Patrick and Elex Scheels, say they are still angry about their children’s illness, which occurred despite their efforts to monitor the kinds of food they eat.
“It was terrifying and horrible,” Mrs. Scheels said, recalling that her daughter lost 2½ pounds during her illness, a significant loss for a 24-pound child.
