Good start. Now do it with all other Chinese junk.
Next, all goods manufactured in China should be rejected and shipped back. Wal-Mart and Target will go out of business.
Do not serve fish on melamine - fish already full of melamine
You got to be kidding. You know how many people this effects. I think most of the American consumption of farm raised shrimp and catfish comes from overseas.
Good. Chuck Fina. Only real Louisiana shrimp and catfish for real Americans!
The FDA’s in for a big State Dept. smackdown.
Great - this poison has got to be stopped - we cannot rely on third world sanitation and ethics in creating our food supply...
Doesn’t effect me. I only eat farm raised cat fish from Lake Okeechobee at a little place called the Catfish House in Stuart, Florida. Best southern food around.
Sorry for the tangent. Always good to hear of a crackdown on China

I sure hope Duncan Hunter gets some traction from all of these crazy China fleece-trading deals. He’s the only presidential candidate in the race with a focus on how this kind of thing affects normal Americans.
And tens of thousands of American jobs will be gone. With less pressure on other stores to compete, prices will rise.
I don't like the fact that we are funding China any more than you do, but we've got to anticipate and compensate for the unintended consequences!

This is starting to get really ugly with Chinese made products across the board.
