Killer Pet Food ingredient in USA comes from China--ABC News

You still want to send our baseball players to China? Now we find their permitted pesticide, one illegal in the US, has killed our innocent cats and dogs:
  • "ABC News has learned that Menu Foods bought wheat gluten...from China. That possibility raises questions about the safety of pet and other food products in the United States.
  • ABC News first reported that the rodenticide may have been present in the wheat that was imported from China and used by Menu Foods, according to a source close to the investigation.
  • Aminopterin is not registered for use as a pesticide in the United States, and it has been known as a potential source of birth defects in humans."
