  1. Hmmm…I’d like to know what method they used to prove a negative? If they had received confirmation that somewhere in the analytical procedure that the lab contaminated the sample or misidentified the results or that they never received the contaminated ingredient – then I can believe it. If all they did was analyze additional samples from various finished products and ingredients and declared it OK – Once a positive always a positive.
