The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said Friday(5-25-07) it has intercepted one shipment of CORN GLUTEN imported from China that tested positive for melamine and cyanuric acid.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has tested 32 samples of wheat, rice, soy and corn gluten and protein concentrates coming into the country from China. The federal agency is also testing imports that entered the country over the past year.
"Shipments are being tested for both melamine and cyanuric acid since, although neither substance is believed to be particularly toxic by itself, their potency appears to be increased when they are present together," the federal agency said in a statement.

I hope the United States is testing like the Canadians......

I just bought a new bag of dog food. The type I feed wasn't affected, but some of their products were and they all come from the same facility. I've been assured that it is absolutely 100% fine and has been tested etc. etc. for any chance of cross contamination. No problems. I think after what's happened we are all going to think differently and feel less secure when we feed our dogs. It's not just the fact that it happened, but the fact that it is taking weeks for all the affected foods to come to light.
Same here, but I am switching to raw. Seems like the safest way to go at this point. Everyday it's just one more food after the other!Originally Posted by Top Of The Hill
