US companies were adding Melamine to Animal and Fish Food!
The source of these statements was the FDA conference just held.
Recall of an ingredient used to make livestock and fish feed due to the addition of Melamine by US companies.
Source is within the United States. Not directly related to the pet food situation. Not a product that wound up in pet food.
Two companies: Tembec, Toledo, Ohio, and Uniscope, Inc. of Johnstown, CO.
Aquabond and Aqua-tech 2 are the products, made by Tembec and sold to Uniscope
Xtra-bond is made by Uniscope (?), and is intended for livestock feed.
Feeds are used domestically as well as for export. They are notifying other countries where shipped.
The products are binding agents for food intended for cattle, sheep, goats, fish, and shrimp. Melamine was added by Tembec. They have stopped adding it. FDA is advising manufacturers to STOP ADDING MELAMINE.
Advising all companies making finished feed from Aquabond or Aquabond 2 to recall their products. FDA says foods made using Xtra-bond do not need to be recalled as levels are so low.
