Petfood in Taiwan passes all safety tests in 2010

402 different petfoods checked, no violations discovered

Random checks on 402 different petfoods in Taiwan in 2010 turned up no safety violations, according to Taiwan's Council of Agriculture.

Tests for aflatoxin, Salmonella, T-2 toxins, melamine and heavy metals all came back with results meeting international standards. The results for aflatoxin are particularly significant because in 2009 it came to light that more than 300 dogs had died in Taipei after eating aflatoxin-contaminated dog food.
