"CHINA'S quality control watchdog acknowledged in a notice on its website today that two Chinese firms illegally added a deadly chemical to food products blamed for killing thousands of US pets.
- The companies, Xuzhou Anying Biologic Technology Development Co Ltd and Binzhou Futian Biology Technology Co Ltd, added melamine to food additives and labelled them in such a way as to avoid detection on export.
"The two companies illegally added melamine to the wheat gluten and rice protein in a bid to meet the contractual demand* for the amount of protein in the products,'' the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said, citing the results of an investigation."
