When any of them say they can't recall, they can and what they recall puts their ass in trouble.

Tainted wheat gluten found in U.S. food plants

ROCKVILLE, Maryland: The tainted wheat gluten that triggered a massive pet food recall also ended up in processing plants that prepare food consumed by people, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.

While agency leaders offered assurances Monday that the U.S. food supply remains safe, they said they cannot yet completely rule out contamination of human food by the suspect wheat gluten, which contained melamine, a chemical found in plastics and pesticides.

According to import records, the wheat gluten was shipped to the United States from China between Nov. 3 and Jan. 23 and contained "minimal labeling" to indicate whether it was intended for humans or animals.

The agency has banned all wheat gluten imports from the company, Xuzhou Anying Biologic Technology Development, based in Wangdien, China.

The vast majority of the contaminated gluten went to pet food manufacturers and distributors, according to the agency. But some of the processing plants that remain under agency scrutiny make both human and pet food.

"To date, we have nothing that indicates it's gone into human food," said Dorothy Miller, director of the agency's Office of Emergency Operations. "We have a bit more investigation to do."

The food scare began early last month when cats involved in a routine Menu Foods taste trial refused to eat. Within days, the Canadian company alerted a university lab that assists with its testing that the cat food could be toxic. On March 16, Menu Foods recalled 60 million cans and pouches of wet pet food. In recent days, the recall has grown to nearly 100 brands, including food manufactured by Nestlé Purina PetCare and Del Monte Foods' pet products division, Hill's Pet Nutrition.

Confused pet owners, reeling as the list of recalled products grows each day, will likely face more aftershocks.

"It's impossible for us to say, at this time, that there won't be additional recalls," said David Elder, director of the agency's Office of Enforcement. "We're continuing to follow the trail, and wherever the facts and the science lead us is where this investigation will be taken."

The agency is tracing the route of nearly three months' supply of the Chinese gluten in the United States, where it is used as a thickener.

Unlike a contaminant traced to the dirt in which food is grown or tainted water used for irrigation, the suspect ingredient in the pet food is unusual, said the agency commissioner, Andrew von Eschenbach. Bread products, in general, have not been at risk for problems, and wheat gluten undergoes some processing, which can lessen the risk a contaminant could pose.

In addition, the contaminant is chemical, not microbial, making it "very unusual," von Eschenbach said.

Underscoring the U.S. love affair with cats and dogs, the agency said it has received 9,400 complaints about pet food since the controversy began - nearly double the number of complaints for all topics last year. In an "unprecedented" show of force, the agency assigned 400 employees to track down the suspect shipments, field calls from worried pet owners and test 430 samples of potentially contaminated wet and dry food, said Michael Rogers, who directs the agency's field investigations.
