Pet Food Recall: Supplier Identified

Thanks to Pet Connection and Itchmo for digging this bone out of the media junkyard.

The FDA issued an import alert that names the supplier of tainted wheat gluten as Xuzhou Anying Biologic Technology.

Itchmo has the details and points out that other companies using this importer should contact the FDA immediately.

The implications from all this bring into question the current standards for food quality, testing, importing and labeling. In a global marketplace, maybe the U.S. needs to tighten screening procedures, using data from the supplier country as the least common denominator in determining standards.
