Forty-three-year-old Sally Qing Miller and her 56-year-old husband, Stephen S. Miller, along with their company, Chemnutra Inc., pleaded guilty Tuesday afternoon to some of the charges contained in a Feb. 6, 2008, federal indictment.
The indictment alleged the Millers and ChemNutra, along with two Chinese companies, brought wheat gluten tainted with the chemical melamine into the U.S. It was then sold to pet food makers, and thousands of cats and dogs reportedly became sickened or died.
