Itchmo Banned in China

Yes, Itchmo has been banned in China. Throughout the recalls, we had concerned readers in China who have been contacting us about the state of industry over there and how their pets may have died from poisons as well. We wish Chinese pet parents the best and good luck. They deserve just as good pet and human food as the rest of us (among other things). We know you can’t see this, but our thoughts and prayers are with you.

In other news, ironically, the Chinese media is beginning to report on the companies that supplied tainted products to the US. UPDATE: The article in the China Daily disappeared. Here’s a similar Reuters article.

    i suspect the “end” is near.. i’l offer this advice, beware the death throes
    of the dragon?
    you can’t “help”without being at risk? it’s a lesson learned…
    the land is poisoned, and it’s people are less than a thought to it’s goverment?

    EEEKS! Well said Johnypaycut. It’s frightening.

    Thought i’d offer some food for thought.
    if china has so much control over the u.s. , how come it bans any site that
    confronts its doctrine?
    why do so many die in china? it’s ecology is toxic.. it’s water is disapearing,
    no end to lawlessness is ever seen.
    no end to criminal activity? it will grow worse..
    it only has the money it took from the u.s. through exploiting every opertunity it saw. a few decades ago it was a minor power. it has limits?
    and their being reached, it will not remain a monster, i predict it is going to
    but it may be a very nasty process?

    Itchmo Admin, you are so even-keeled. (”Goodness gracious.”) I’m in awe.

  8. Elaine Vigneault says:

    My blog is banned in China, too. But it was long before the recalls. They just ban a TON of websites for seemingly trivial or absurd reasons. I think mine got banned for vulgar language.

  9. Andrea says:

    I am ashamed of myself. My site isn’t banned in China yet. I’ll have to try harder.

  10. Mandy says:

    Ha! If China banned Itchmo, they show even more than they have already that THEY HAVE SOMETHING TO HIDE!

  11. Moony says:

    I’d think that the Chinese ‘restaurants’ associated with major groceries might be the ones to be more wary of, and the fast food chains like Panda Express, rather than the small, local places. Might still take me a while to desire to eat Chinese as much as I used to, tho.

    Maybe we can’t avoid it all, but we can at least protect ourselves and our own, and maybe if everyone did that things would right themselves. :)

    This site is not banned in China. I’m in China right now and I’m looking at it, no problems.

    ITCHMO ADMIN: Your IP shows that you are being routed through an Australian ISP.

  13. PetSentinel says:

    Does anyone ever check anything out like a reporter should. I think the site with all the so-called “banned” urls is totally bogus. I put the url of a small RV dealer in, as well as some very small local businesses, and they all came back “banned.” Don’t believe everything someone passes along on a blog.

    ITCHMO ADMIN: We do check these things. We were not banned a few weeks ago. Now we are.

    Why is it the U.S. can do business with a massive, communist regime like China, put the health and welfare of our pets (and us!) in jeopardy, but we still have a rock-solid trade and travel embargo on Cuba after 50+ years?

    Oh, that’s right. Cuba doesn’t have trillions of $ to bail us out and tens of thousands of peasants to make stuff for Wallyworld for pennies. Hmm.

    It all always goes back to the money, doesn’t it.

  15. Sharon says:

    I’m surprised this site hasn’t been banned here. You better believe we are being watched.

  16. Stan says:

    I doubt really that Chinese restaurants would get chicken and meats all the way from china! I had always under stood that they used fresh dogs and cats from right here in the USA?
    I kid, I kid! ;-)

    Itchmo, this is the previous anonymous poster here- once again, this site is *not* banned in China. I live in Xi’an. I’m seeing my IP as definitely not Australia.

  18. IFeelQuiteItchy says:

    I find that could be an Itchy or scratchy situation!

    I learned not to confuse the Chinese people with the Chinese government. I was in China in April. I had no choice. I run interference for my mother in airports as she’s pretty tiny. We were scheduled to go on a cruise. So off I went, leaving behind two dogs, a cat, a ton of organic food for them and a very careful sitter. The Net on the ship transmits to satellite.We were jammed from the moment we got near land until we were out of range again Until we caught on,some of us were trying to use the ships computers and having our terminals lock up, accounts open and no activity. One man had a Listserv going. I raised hell until I got a credit. But, I also got lost in Shanghai and survived it by staying only in areas that were familiar,not speaking to anyone, and lucking out: I found a man in a T shirt shop who called the police for me because they spoke English. It got complicated from there, but obviously, everything worked out.They were helpful and even gave me a small paper cup of hot water.Getting driven to a ship by police car is quite a treat.The guys on the gangway looked at me What?? The police whistled. I turned around and all four officers were standing in front of their car with big grins on their faces. I wished that I could have taken a picture.
