Between all of our clients for whom we feed Froogle, we have about 25,000 listings currently. We're probably going to take them all out now with these new requirements. They don't fit any of the products or listings that we currently have (many products are made in Asia and don't have a 'brand' per se - certainly expiration dates don't apply, etc.), we don't seem to get much out of it anyway, and it sure appears that Froogle doesn't really want any of the listings anyway, otherwise they wouldn't put such restrictions on it. Too bad, because I have other catalog type clients who wanted in, but this just isn't a good fit anymore.
