Default Melamine in CORN gluten in S. AFrica ndog food


and it came from.........China
http://www.news24.com/News24/South_A...101493,00.html
Johannesburg - Tests have confirmed that Vets Choice and Royal Canin dog and
cat dry pet-food products contained corn gluten contaminated with melamine,
says the manufacturer.

The contaminated corn gluten was delivered to Royal Canin by a South African
third-party supplier and appears to have originated from China.

.........so if your bag says corn gluten, please keep an eye on your pets.
If it doesn't say corn gluten, call the company and find out if they changed
the formulation and hadn't changed the bag yet.

Now I'll be very interested in the test results from UC Davis on food taken
by VIN folks, but really, what do you think they'll find.......

...........did you check the latest Royal Canin recalls? Go to
www.itchmo.com and scroll down. I don't blame you for waiting. We're
still waiting for 2 more companies to come clean on the rice protein
concentrate.
