Another Chinese Pet Food Recall — Bird and Pet Rodent Foods Test Positive for Melamine

Good news — someone tested these pet foods. Bad news — they tested positive for melamine. I know these foods aren’t for dogs and cats but it suggests to me that the Chinese firms STILL don’t get it! Stop poisoning us and our pets!

We cannot let our guard down against Chinese foods! Before buying any pet foods, please check the country of origin. If it says “China” put it down!

This information comes from the FDA’s Enforcement Report for December 26, 2007.
