Beijing rejects link between Chinese snacks, sick pets

By Around the Web

(Xinhua) China’s top quality supervisor said on Tuesday that tests had found no direct evidence to connect pet sickness in the United States to snacks made in China.

The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) said tests — conducted by it and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration — had not confirmed any connection and had not detected any poisonous or hazardous ingredients in the snacks, despite allegations that they were the cause of widespread illness and death in U.S. pets.

The AQSIQ did not specify what brand or snack variety was under investigation.
