So you are embedding a pdf in the frame document?

When you output your pdfs, what are the colour settings in pdfmaker?

This seems like it should be simple and done routinely by many others.

I have an image of a flammable substance label.  It has a pantone red, a 
pantone yellow, and black. I want to use the image in a Framemaker document 
that will be sent for commercial printing using "Spot Color" not process 
printing.  How can I accomplish this?

The image is an Illustrator file. I save the file to PDF, load it into Frame 
10, save the Frame file as PDF, open in acrobat pro and use Advanced > Print 
Production > Output Preview to see that the image is a mix of CMYK not my spot 
pantone colors.

I also suspect that the image saved from Illustrator as a PDF format should 
display the spot colors but it does not. So the problem/solution might start
