I wonder if you did not get some Made in China stuff. they've been caught putting melamine in milk products exported to the US (including baby formula). The reasoning as explained by the WHO:

"Why was melamine added into milk and powdered infant formula

In China, where adulteration has occurred, water has been added to raw milk to increase its volume. As a result of this dilution the milk has a lower protein concentration. Companies using the milk for further production (e.g. of powdered infant formula) normally check the protein level through a test measuring nitrogen content. The addition of melamine increases the nitrogen content of the milk and therefore its apparent protein content. "
