Tainted Pet Food - Charges Filed

Charges were filed for a US couple who are owners of a US firm that imported the chemical that was mixed with pet food and resulted in the death of thousands of pets. Charges were also filed against two Chinese companies. Per the LA Times:

ChemNutra Inc., which imports Chinese food and ingredients for distribution across the United States, along with married owners Sally Qing Miller, 41, and Stephen S. Miller, 55, were charged in a 27-count indictment with evading mandatory inspections of the ingredients in China, delivering adulterated food, misbranding food and conspiring to defraud the companies that unknowingly bought the tainted ingredient. All but the conspiracy count are misdemeanors.

Comments - I thought the history was a bit different, and did not realize the product was directly imported from China. I thought it went through another country. Overview/commentary of what happened.
