The poisoned pet food story keeps getting bigger and more worrying.
Pretty clear that some food grade (as opposed to feed grade) wheat gluten was in the contaminated batch and that the FDA is worried it got into the human food chain.
They still don’t really know what the contaminant(s) were.
One comment I noticed is that melamine is used as coating for slow release pesticides or fertilizer granules (can anyone confirm that?), which would explain why it was found and maybe contributed to toxicity, but may not be the main cause (since it is just not that toxic).
FDA still won’t reveal who the US distributor is – it’d be helpful if Archer Daniels Midlands would make an explicit statement denying, or confirming, their role.
FDA import detention order– anyone recognise the 71M01 code?
