    Doesn’t seem like it does :( You would think Nations would stop all trade with China right now!! I know that will kill economies everywhere but they will bounce back once we all start making our own products again!!

    Hearing all these stories for months now sort of makes me wonder…….exactly how long has this REALLY been going on? How much of this food have animals consumed & died from “unknown causes”? I can’t believe this year just happens to be the Chinese year of Bad Luck with Pet Food…….
