Let's take a look back at the original story as it appeared in USA Today and put some more information to it.

http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2007-04-28-fda-pet-food-raid_N.htm

FDA agents raid pet food plant, offices

USAToday April 28, 2007

"The FDA also is looking at all other ingredients imported by ChemNutra, and trying to reconcile what it imported with what it supplied to customers, said agency spokeswoman Julie Zawisza.

"Import records obtained by The Associated Press show that since May 2006 alone ChemNutra also imported 440,000 pounds of the second suspect pet food ingredient, rice protein concentrate, from the same Chinese trading agent that handled exports of the tainted wheat gluten.

"It's unknown if ChemNutra's rice protein concentrate was contaminated. Limited testing suggests it wasn't.

"ChemNutra's source for the two vegetable proteins, Suzhou Textile Import and Export Co., told The AP that food ingredients aren't part of its business — but that employees often take on side deals."

Fine--we have CN using Suzhou Textile for purchasing the contaminated would be wheat gluten, and also obtaining the rice protein concentrate it sells through the same middleman Chinese trading company.  Let's confirm this with what Miller prepared for his Congressional testimony at the Spring 2007 hearing:

http://www.chemnutra.com/Commerce%20Committee%20Submissions.pdf

Page 6:

"How Does ChemNutra Identify and Screen Suppliers?

"XuZhou Anying was reccommended to ChemNutra by one of China's leading trading companies, with whom we have had a long-standing relationship."

Page 8:

"Does ChemNutra Import Rice Protein Concentrate From China?

"ChemNutra uses a large, reliable trading company in China to import rice protein concentrate, Suzhou Textiles...."

So let's have a look at the "large, reliable" trading company of ChemNutra--

Here is ChemNutra's "large and reliable trading company".  They have multiple names they do business under and apparently sell anything from A to Z, including medical gloves which have been sufficiently defective enough to land them on the FIARS Import Alert Detention List shown above.  These are the people who indicated that Suzhou Anying could deliver untainted wheat gluten, and as per Miller's statement above, apparently continue to handle all Feed, Food and Pharma that the "China Experts" import into this country.  If you are a client of ChemNutra, you are also dealing with the various companies above, though you may not know it until now.

Sorry folks--just realized I'd forgotten to add the link to Miller's statements, so added it to the piece above.  Had enough windows open doing this to make quite a cyber "draft" in here.  Smiley

It was honestly amazing to see just how many different lines these people are involved in--besides what they state is their main one--the chemical business.  BTW--from what I've seen of where they're selling chemicals and the like, some of them are produced by this company, apparently, under the brand name Hangliang.  You'll see it if you click the various offerings.  I'd believe, that the rest, as they say, can (and is) "gotten" from any Chinese chemical maker.

After you see the "line up", I can't believe what Stern said for a moment re: employees taking "side deals", as it looks like this entire trading company is one giant "side deal".

Scary to read too the number of employees 51-100 Huh
I guess they're hired on an as needed basis, thereby making the potential for "side deals" almost impossible to trace or control.
Heaven help us all............

Thanks, Menusux (a.k.a. Sherlock Holmes) for all of your research.  Quite an eye-opener What a tangled web they weave...the more to deceive us with.

An all around we sell everything place. Easy to see how chemicals come to be mixed with the food products since they exist in the same environment. Wow just makes one all gritty and dirty feeling even thinking about buying anything from places like this. Thx menusux for another important reason to not buy anything from melaland.
