Think you are right...we depend on China (Wal-Mart) for everything we buy now days. Guess the Chinese figured the people in the USA had too many dogs and cats, so they brewed up some tainted pet food. What's going to happen when all the container ships stop bringing us our daily needs??

thank you for the offensive post. Moisture was the cause of the bacteria *Salmonella* in the food.

I would guess the food most likely comes from factories in America. you can blame a American for that.

Stop taking everything like they are insulting you. No one is making racial comments, just a JOKE...

I see you were able to catch on the news where the bacteria Salmonella was found in the food.... Guess you missed the part where the food was manufactured in China?

I would guess that you guessed wrong.

Yes I did miss that, but to correct you correcting me, one of the ingridents came from china, US companies made the pet food though.

"Recalled food came from two different plants

Henderson said Menu Foods does not believe the food was tampered with because the recalled food came from two different plants, one in Kansas, one in New Jersey. Menu continues to produce food at the two plants."



It is offensive to say china intentionally made a tainted ingredient. that 1 company does not represent china, chinese or me. Do you think that 1 former American who joined the al-qaida represents the US ,Americans or you? I didnt think so. it goes both ways.

So I apologize for jumping to conclusions. Jester why does it matter if I am American or not?



if you are so curious, I am a British Born Chinese United States Marine.

My government professor in my freshman year, Major Deaton gave his students a very similar list. At some point in everyones education there are a few exceptional people, Major Deaton was one of those.

As of today there are still two China's in this World, the free Chinese of Taiwan, and the Communist Chinese of Mainland China. Even though the threat of Communism is not taught in US schools anymore, it doesn't diminish the threat of the Communist doctrine of Mainland China. The USA used to be the main supplier of goods to the rest of the World, and that is what built this Country during the last 100 years or so. Now we are becoming totally dependant on the goods made by other countries and that is leading to a rapid decline of our industrial base. Once we become dependant on other countries for our basic needs such as food and energy, our strength as a Country will be very diminished. As far as the pet food mess goes, here are a few links to read.

Was moisture the cause of the melamine contamination in the chinese gluten?



Just curious.



Bad quality control is one thing when it's a cheap wal-mart mp3 player. It's a different thing when it is food.

BTW, I hope everyone pays more attention than I do about food recalls. :oops: I missed the one about peanut butter and Salmonella is NO JOKE. I wanted to kill myself for about 48 hours. And apparently I was lucky.

I think we are WELL into #7, with maybe a bit of clean-up left on #6, but I think that step is pretty much wrapped up. It wont be long before the USA is nothing more than a bunch of middle men. Shortly, therefater the USA will be nothing cause nobody needs or wants middle men. I am hoping for some form of wake up from not only our "leaders" but our populace as well, but unless something very dramatic happnes its a lost cause. When people are more concerned what Imus said about a bunch of basketball players or who sang what on Idol instead of voting in an election its a lost cause. We are in for a rough ride in the next generation or at best two. About the only thing rising in the USA is individual debt and government employment. Sad state of affairs we have going on.

Why so sensitive? That's part of the problem with America today and just proves the point of this post. Not trying to offend anyone but come on....if I got offended every time some one called me a name (Imus), there would be no one working in my town!
