Taiwan Quick Take: Hsiao raises pet food alarm


Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Hsiao Bi-khim (蕭美琴) yesterday attempted to play the China, bird-flu and animal-protection cards over pet products, but an animal expert dismissed her claims. Hsiao warned that pet foods might contain Chinese ingredients and were dangerous. She did not provide evidence of deleterious effects. According to Peng Ming-hsing (彭明興), section chief of the Animal Quarantine division of the Council of Agriculture, customers can protect their rights by reading food labels.
