The Hong Kong government says its tests have found the industrial chemical melamine in Chinese-made Nestle brand milk.

The government said in a statement late Sunday that the chemical was found in Nestle's Dairy Farm brand milk for catering use. It said the milk was made by a Nestle subsidiary in the Chinese coastal city of Qingdao.

It says the tests found only a small amount of melamine and the milk does not pose a serious health risk.

However, it recommends that the milk not be fed to young children.
