ChemNutra says information on their co-brokered deal for fish feed ingredient was in FDA’s hands in mid-April. Spokesperson Steve Stern also stated that the search of ChemNutra by federal officials announced 10 days ago should have turned up these details.
ChemNutra did receive a fee for introducing the customer to Suzhou Textiles Silk Light & Industrial Products for “a modest fee.” The products were imported through another company, whose name he declined to disclose.
NOTE: Prior to the recall, ChemNutra did not test imports but relied on import certificates. Stern says that all imports are being tested now.
