  I know this has been covered in another thread, and I've been gone for 2 weeks so have a lot of catching up to do. 

My Question is:

 Why did FDA protect this giant USA rendering firm (Darling International, who also owns National ByProducts) from the public during all those news conferences after this April discovery?  They knew about this violation of MELAMINE contamination during April, yet remained closed lipped about it and continued on with their press conferences without a word to the media and consumers..  The contamination of MBM (meat and bone meal), which is also referred to as meat meal also - was highly contaminated with melamine.  One must assume this has been going on for some time.  I went back through most of the press conferences and did not find anything to reference this contamination recall. If I missed something, will someone please enlighten me..  Will there be fines and actions against companies that have been doing this?  Is this why they stopped the news conferences abruptly?  All of the above is in my opinion as I remain livid with FDA...

IMHO......this information was withheld for a couple of reasons.

1.  It would be admitting publicly that this rendering "dirt", aka garbage, was being used in pet food.....especially if it had been announced in April, when it should have been, right in the middle of the pet food recalls.  The hysterical pet owners would have been able to follow the dots & see where at least part of the contamination was coming from.

2.  It would've contradicted their lies that China was the culprit.  I have little doubt that there was also contamination from the ingredients coming in from China so you add that to the toxins in the rendering crap & that makes for a real toxic stew.

And what if Menu or some of the other manufacturers were sprinkling a little fairy dust (aka melamine) in the products to add a little protein to the already highly contaminated pf (we do remember the bag marked "melamine" in with the bags of "glutens").  Now you really have a ton of contaminants in the pf.

Maybe I see conspiracy where there is none but I smell a big fat rat.....which is probably because there's some of that mixed in there also. Shocked

Another question I had -
 http://www.righthealth.com/Health-Diet__and_Nutrition/cyromazine/-m-1-s

 
What are the "acceptable levels" in the meat tissue itself for both beef and chicken to begin with?  Um, Before anything else is added.  I did find the fda acceptable levels of ppm for melamine and cyromazine in the animal tissue itself. You know that FDA said there should not even be a trace.. Well, I found those acceptable levels..  100ppb in beef and 50 ppb in poultry.. which is tricky when you get parts per billion as compared to parts per million..  I find those calculations down to .05 in ppM in poultry and .10ppM in beef.  That is square one, beginning in the livestock and what they are fed.    Greed sets in for boosting at the rendering plants with the different grades provided to their customers.  Unfortunately they serve the premium pet foods too.. disgusting..
 
Start adding more boosters to this and that (glutens) and absolute toxic overload begins to happen.. as seen ...
