I have had my product search disapproved and recently my product ads.  Dowloaded the status feed and this what comes up.  What needs to be fixed.  Help!  Thanks

google may be contacted here:
http://support.google.com/merchants/bin/request.py?contact_type=disapproved

only someone from google can clarify a disapproval.

if the disapproval issue is policy related then only
someone at google can remove the disapproval block.

generally, any items related to muscle-enhancing,
body-building, diet, or any similar types of items
may be flagged as disapproved until someone at google
inspects the feed and items since many such types of
items are disallowed by google.

also, each item must have a unique id.

also, zero priced items are not allowed.

also, items without an image cannot be submitted.

also, valid and accurate global-trade data is required.

also, google has strict rules with respect to variants.

also, google has strict rules with respect to availability and supply-chains.

google policies should be here:

other potential disapproval issues should be here:
