Kaffe, this is very disturbing in that the Philippine government is reacting to an FDA recall about melamine in pet food imported from China:
"The directive was issued by the Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service (CIIS) in response to a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory recalling pet food due to melamine content."
I get emailed all of the alerts from the FDA and I did NOT receive any alert about another pet food recall. I just went to the FDA's website (www.fda.gov
) and there is no recent recall listed anywhere for pet food from China. I did a google search and can't find anything recent. Do you have any other information on this FDA pet food recall??
I had to read that statement twice too - but it seems that the Philippine gov't is reacting to two things: the FDA's warning and recall of petfood LAST YEAR and the more recent dog deaths in China due to contaminated petfood. In other words, there is no "new" petfood recall due to melamine initiated by the FDA...
I think the passage in question suffered from "lost in transaltion" thingy.
