Supplier Denies Exporting to the US

The supplier of tainted wheat gluten — Xuzhou Anying, named by the FDA, denies ever selling wheat gluten to the US. “We have never exported wheat gluten directly or indirectly to the U.S., Canada or the Netherlands.”

The mystery deepens.

PS: CEO of ChemNutra says their president had nothing to do with Xuzhou’s ISO certification. See original post.

    More menu foods products are due for recall from menu foods and sunshine foods (evidently they make dog biscits) According to CNN 12:10 MST.

    I don’t see any recall information on the site.

    I am starting to despair that we as a society will ever amass the will and resources to get to the bottom of this horrible debaucle. The more complicated it gets and the less easily “sound- bited” it becomes, the harder it will be to keep the media, our politicians of both parties and the public focused. (More countries, more governments, more companies, more brands, more recalls, more denials, more PR spin, more lawyers, more lobbying money at election time.) Everyone wants easy answers and quick fixes. This is a problem with immediate widespread complex global scientific and economic ramifications. No one wants to touch it. Not to diminish global warming but seriously, folks, greenhouse effects happen slowly. Tainted ingredients are happening in the food supply NOW!!!!!!

    Congressional hearings will certainly help. Thank you Sen. Durbin. But I fear like so much else it will just end up being a “show” with no real depth or long term results… for a few more FDA inspectors maybe and hand slap or suspension for ChemNutra or a trial for Menu Foods isn’t enough. How many more pets (and people) will have to die before we realize what a huge problem we have on our hands?

    Oh, does Anna Nicole’s baby have a father yet? Local news at 10!!!

    “As if” information coming out of China is believable.

    Maybe Xuzhou sold it to the alleged terriorists, and the alleged terriorist sold it to ChemNutra.

  5. Traci says:

    or, maybe, ChemNutra are the terrorists?

    What I do not understand is why people are attacking Menu foods?? They are the first one to identify that there was a problem. And I see people are trying to sue them. What about the companies that left their product on the shelf for 7 to 10 days longer than menu. People be aware that bad news sells and the media is out there for a buck and that is it. The big news is pets dieing but our president can kill thousands of our soldiers for no reason and it never makes the news. What a world we live in. The fact is menu bought wheat gluten and it was tainted. As did numerous other pet food companies. The wheat gluten supplier is the one to point the finger at. There is no way on Gods green earth that companies can test for everything. And why would a company test for melamine?? That is used for ??????? who knows what. There are millions of chemicals out there. Each and every company has to do the right thing. The Chinese do not care about their people why should they care about our pets!!!! This is a slap in the face and then when asked they try to lie!! All products from china should be banned if they do not make this right!! That country had something like 300,000,000 food related illnesses last year. THEY FLAT DO NOT CARE!!
