I KNEW it had to do with outsourcing!!!
Clues to pet food recall traced to Chinese city
Granted, I said it partially as a joke for those* who are all up-in-arms over outsourcing (I hate the loss of American jobs as much as the next guy, but I also appreciate cheap clothing and other necessities)...but it is true. When you pay less money and use cheaper materials...you're going to get really poor quality. That's just common sense.
I'm just glad my kitty's food isn't deadly.
