Intentional contamination?

Via MSNBC - FDA: Pet food tainting might be intentional
Imported ingredients used in recalled pet food may have been intentionally spiked with an industrial chemical to boost their apparent protein content, federal officials said Thursday.

Chinese authorities have told the FDA that the wheat gluten was an industrial product not meant for pet food, Sundlof said.
One has to wonder who was actually in the wrong here or if both the producer of the wheat gluten and the makers of the pet food are at fault. I just hope this gets straightened out soon, because I really just don't know what to feed my dog anymore.
