Article in the Wall Street Journal -- FDA Blocks Wheat Gluten Imports From Chinese Firm After Pet Recall, by the Associated Press. Here's an excerpt:
The U.S. government has blocked imports of wheat gluten from a company in China because of contamination, acting after the recent pet-food-related deaths of cats and dogs.
The Food and Drug Administration took action against wheat gluten from Xuzhou Anying Biologic Technology Development Co. in Wangdien, China, after the U.S. recall of nearly 100 brands of pet food. Tainted pet food apparently has resulted in kidney failure in animals across the country.
