Pet Food Recall

I am going to go on record and ask probably the most obviously stupid question but I have yet to hear anyone ask or even anyone report indirectly the merest hints of any possibly explanation. Just put it down as my natural tendency to be exceedingly dense.

Why are North American pet food manufacturers importing wheat gluten from China rather than locally produced wheat gluten from North America? Is there a shortage of wheat or wheaten gluten produced in North America?

I haven't got a clue, but the whole pet food thing made me glad to have a parrot.

I'd be happy to have a parrot, if only a parrot could patrol the house and keep it mice free. I live in a flat built in the 19th century so there are a million and one little ways for the critters to get in, hence, the cat.
