Items may soon fail to process due to missing Tax and Shipping or invalid Google Product Category values. View warnings under 'x of x items inserted' ableammo 4/17/12 12:50 PM
I too am receiving this error, but none of my 20000+ products are no longer showing.
I have followed and checked the guidelines found here:

Still no luck, you can view my datafeed here:

But all they send me is the reference link above. Please Help

the tax and shipping message is within all accounts --
that message is not specific to your account or feed.

tax and shipping do not seem to be within that feed --
where and how are tax and shipping being configured?

items without a valid image cannot be submitted --
http://www.celebird.com/cloud/celebird-shopping-search.htm?gid=7838305&q=363080

sites with mature content must be checked as mature
within the account settings; all submitted items must
be legal within the entire target-country.

items without tax, shipping, or images, or invalid items,
can cause the entire site to not be indexed within google
product-search, disapproved, or suspended.

the best course is usually to respond directly to google
with the trouble-ticket number of the person at google
assigned to your case, and request a clarification.

Tax and shipping is configured under settings as below: 
You will specify sales tax by state:
Texas, US 6.25%
ups shippingUPS > GroundUnited StatesUSD5 business days
 Shipping details
Shipping region:  United States
Method:  UPS > Ground
Surcharge:  -10.0% and $0.00
Shipping origin:  77340
Delivery speed:  5 business days

items without a valid image cannot be submitted --
http://www.celebird.com/cloud/celebird-shopping-search.htm?gid=7838305&q=363080

 I will check my feed for invalid images again.

I do sell firearms, but this is not listed under mature items 

items without tax, shipping, or images, or invalid items,
can cause the entire site to not be indexed within google
product-search, disapproved, or suspended.
I will fix the images, then try to submit again.

Thanks for your response and help.

This item does have a valid image ref, however, it is of a generic pic. 
This should be fine, Google would have no way to check/valid if my picture is the actual picture of the product or not.
A picture does exist, i'm just using a generic as a place holder.

unfortunately, generic images are not allowed; if there
is no image for an item, the item cannot be submitted.

google has the taxonomy --
Mature > Weapons > Guns

of course, google is the final arbiter of all such issues.
