ST. PAUL - The Minnesota Department of Agriculture is advising consumers to throw out a brand of biscuits that are contaminated with melamine.

The biscuits are under the Wonderfarm brand Successful. Lab tests found the biscuits have more melamine than allowed under Food and Drug Administration standards. The synthetic chemical can cause kidney and urinary tract problems.

Melamine has been associated with food recalls linked to products made in China and Southeast Asia.

The Wonderfarm biscuits were made by Interfood Shareholding Company in Vietnam.

Agriculture department officials collected the products from an oriental food store in Rochester.
