I think I read a post on here where someone was feeding their Basenji one of the following brands of food. I found this announcement on another website along with continuing information about recalls of pet food with made with tainted wheat gluten from China. It appears that China is finally allowing officials from the FDA into their country to investigate how this happened. There is another concern that the same contamination that effected the pet food industry might find its way into human food products.
Here are some quotes from the other site…..
"Worries about tainted pet food has now expanded to human food, with the word that the pet foods containing melamine apparently was feed to hogs in six states. Many of the hogs are quarantined."
"American Nutriton on April 26 issued a recall of dog and cat foods made with rice protein concentrate and sold under brand names such as Harmony Farms, Blue Buffalo, Natural Balance and Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul, but not under the American Nutrition brand name."
While this might be old news to some, it is a continuing story which may escalate and become more of a major concern, especially if they find that contaminated feeds have be fed to livestock raised for human consumption purposes that has made its way into the human food supply chain.
