So is that a yes?

I wrote to Boca, to ask if their veggie burgers contain ingredients from China.

I said: Does Boca use any ingredients originating from China?

Here's the response I got:

Thank you for taking the time to contact us with your concerns.

We have been actively monitoring the activities related to the FDA and USDA investigation of melamine and melamine-related compounds in pet food and have reviewed sourcing for our products. Based on our review of these ingredients and suppliers, we have no reason to believe that any of our products are impacted by ingredients implicated in the recent pet food issue.

Please be assured that from ingredient procurement through finished product, we take a number of precautions to assure the safety and wholesomeness of our products. We will continue to monitor this situation closely, review our practices and will implement appropriate safeguards wherever necessary.

Again, thank you for taking the time to contact us. If you would like more information about our safety and quality efforts, please visit the Quality and Food Safety section of our website

Is it just me, or is that a non-answer?
