Contaminated Food From China

In 2012 I removed all products from Midas Touch Naturally Healthy Pets that contained any ingredients from China. Surprisingly, this included many “made in the USA” pet foods.  Although the food was made in the USA, some raw materials were actually imported from China and there is no requirement that this information be disclosed to the consumer.  Often the China ingredient was the vitamin and mineral mix and uncovering this information was not always easy.  Some manufacturers purchase their vitamins from a country other than China, but that country actually purchases their raw material from China.

As a result of my research I removed more than half of the inventory from my store.  Why have I chosen to take this unprecedented action?  In 2007 melamine from China resulted in thousands of dog and cat deaths.  In 2008 melamine in infant formula sickened thousands of children.  And it appears that China ingredients are no safer today.  Chicken jerky dog treats from China, which remain on store shelves as I write this, have been linked to hundreds of dog’s illness and deaths.

China import refusal records by the FDA reveal that hundreds of products are refused entry into the US from China each month. The products refused entry include pet food, shortbread cookies, fish, vegetables, tofu, and fruit and the violations ranged from filthy to poisonous.  And as you can see from the records below, melamine is still being detected in pet products and food for human consumption.  Consider the fact the FDA can inspect only about 2% of the imports and they refused 223 products in April alone.  How safe are the approximately 98% of the imports that entered our food supply without inspection?

Listed below are the food products I found that were refused entry into the United States beginning 2/1/12.  You can find additional violations in the Import Refusal Report on the FDA web site.
