MADE IN CHINA PRODUCTS
Wheat Gluten and Corn Gluten
and Rice Protein Concentrate tainted with poison. It
was imported from China and traveled through various places
before its final destination. The poison is melamine.
Melamine added to boost the profit margin, cheat health.
is now very clear that our
regulations are not tight enough. Why are we
inspecting only 1.3% of imports?
Why are we
relying so heavily on
imported food ? How safe is any
food from foreign countries if it does not have to
abide by our FDA regulations or we can't enforce them?
Why don't we inspect
all of it? Do we inspect the facilities? How
often? Are we under funded? Where is current funds
going? Are there too many authorities dividing up a piece of the pie?
We need to know,
if its here, if its consumable, its safe!
