"Senators say more tainted rice protein likely in the US
Two US Senators say that a company in addition to Wilbur-Ellis has imported rice protein
concentrate that is “also likely to be contaminated with melamine.”
They say that the FDA is aware of the second importer, but is not identifying the company. The information was provided to the senators from industry insiders, not the FDA. Despite a senate hearing, the FDA continues to withhold information about the companies involved.
Please stay tuned over the next few days for more possible recalls."
I wonder if USA law allows citizens to sue the FDA? Any attorneys on this board? I’d love to join a class action on general principle, but as my cat is ok (THANK GOD) the only thing I could sue for would be the $100+ we spent on a blood test/kidney screen.
The FDA’s behavior is not acceptable in a democracy. There must be a way to deliver some consequences (though it’s unlikely that Bush, Cheny, et al will get any consequences for their Iraq profiteering either).
