Why Are We Importing Wheat From China?

Today it was announced that rat poison is the cause of the pet food recall. The specific poison is not approved to be used in the US, but it may have been in the wheat from China. Maybe this is a good wake up call about our imports. Also- don't we have enough wheat in the US?

Update: Paul Henderson, chief executive of Menu Foods, confirmed Friday that the wheat gluten was purchased from China.

Wheat from China, cause its cheaper, everything is from China nowadays. Are they sure its the wheat that is causing problems? and that the wheat is in fact from China? Americans always blame others first, remember the MAD COW disease. American "the cow came originally from Canada". then I suppose Americans gotta have better food control.
