It has become obvious that the human food supply
is most definitely threatened is at risk because of melamine poisoning.
Melamine was the chemical added to boost protein levels in pet food, to artificially inflate the price American buyers paid the Chinese suppliers.
Wilbur-Ellis purchased 740,753 pounds of the rice protein concentrate from Binzhou Futian Biology Technology Co. It shipped 341,716 pounds to five pet food manufacturers in Kansas, Missouri, New York, and Utah. Only 3 of those suppliers have come forward.
They were: Natural balance, The Blue Buffalo Co. and Royal Canin. My question is who the other suppliers are, and why have they not disclosed information that consumers need to have?
Melamine has been found in rice gluten, as well as wheat gluten, it has also been found in feed in Africa in corn gluten. I wonder how long before we find other products poisoned.
Melamine has also now been found in pigs meant for human consumption at a 1500-animal facility in California. More than 100 hogs that ate contaminated food at a custom slaughterhouse in California’s Central Valley were sold to private individuals and to an unnamed licensed facility in Northern California during the past 2 1/2 weeks. People who bought pork from the American Hog Farm, a 1,500-animal facility in Ceres, Calif., between April 3 and April 18 are being advised not to eat the meat.
The Food and Drug Administration has opened a criminal investigation in the widening pet food contamination scandal, officials said yesterday, when it was confirmed that tainted pork might have been consumed by people.
It is very common trend to have cat as a pet. If you are looking for cat accessories, go for online shopping in order to find the stuff that you would like more for your cats. A variety of cat collars are available on different online shopping sites.
