Within the aftermath of the pet food recall that was accountable for the reported deaths of 1000’s of dogs, two Chinese firms and one American firm have been criminally indicted on multiple felony counts of introduction of adulterated food into interstate commerce and introduction of misbranded food into interstate commerce.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says that 2,200 dogs died after eating melamine tainted pet food. Melamine, a chemical utilized in the manufacture of plastics was discovered in roughly 800 tons of mislabeled tainted wheat gluten to avoid inspection in China.
An American firm, ChemNutra and its owners were charged with multiple misdemeanor and a felony count.
“The defendants intended to deceive the Chinese government along with consumers,” stated the U. S. Attorney handling the case.
Here’s the clincher…your dog was poisoned by the alleged intentional acts of the participants!
The indictment says that, ChemNutra sold the melamine-tainted product to manufacturers of economic brands of pet (dog) food. The indictment charges that the Chinese company added melamine to artificially boost protein content of the gluten. This was cheaper than adding real protein, albeit poisonous. So dogs became ailing and suffered renal failure and 1000’s died.
