Melamine in Minnesota cookies - but where were they made?

So where these cookies made in China -- or Vietnam?
Warning expanded on tainted cookies

... State officials are expanding their warning about contaminated cookies being sold in Minnesota.

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture is warning consumers to avoid eating any Wonderfarm brand cookie-type biscuits due to melamine contamination....

... State officials are urging consumers to immediately dispose of any Wonderfarm brand cookie products, which are made by Interfood Shareholding Co. in Vietnam.
There's no particular reason that Melamine, used to counterfeit protein, should be limited to Chinese products.

It's impressive how little interest there is among consumers in this topic, and how feeble the reporting is. This report doesn't tell us how these products came to be sold in Minnesota.
