The latest that I can find is that one source of the melamine contamination originates with an imported rice protein concentrate from China. The shipment was offloaded during the week of Apr 2 by Wilbur-Ellis of San Francisco. Wilbur Ellis notified the FDA’s Center of Veterinary Medicine on Apr 15 that there was possible contamination problems.

The recall includes Natural Balance Pet Foods: Venison and Brown Rice canned and dry, Venison and Brown Rice dog treats and Venison and Green Pea dry cat food. resource:

There also seems to be a problem with melamine-contaminated corn and wheat gluten imported from China. Check out the latest (morning of Apr 23) at
