Default SERIOUS: Pet food recall

A number of foods are being recalled because animals are getting sick
and dying; kidney failure is the most prevalent problem and they are
not sure what is causing it yet.

Here is the complete list of cat foods:

http://www.menufoods.com/recall/product_cat.html

Dog foods:

http://www.menufoods.com/recall/product_dog.html

PLEASE check the lists for any foods you may have and follow the
guidelines on the website:

And there are more. Another site has a PDF file that lists more affected
foods than the ones listed on the Menu Web site.

The complete brands list, as of Saturday morning, includes some
surprises:

some surprises:

Chopper; Priority; Save-A-Lot; Schnucks; Sophistacat; Special Kitty;
Springfield Pride; Sprout; Total Pet; My True Friend; Wegmans; Western
Family; White Rose; and Winn Dixie.

Press release at:

CNN/AP story at:
http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/03/17/pet....ap/index.html

PDF at:

Remember, this is just the pouch and canned foods described in the news
story (above), not dry foods.

The news release from Menu Foods never says it regrets that some pets
died, but it does mention TWICE how much the recall is going to cost
them.

http://tinyurl.com/ytr3yr is another resource for pet owners as to
which foods are being recalled. Thanks to you and to Julie Porter for
posting other links that may prove useful as pet owners try and figure
out which foods they have and which they need to discard (and PLEASE
do this for the sake of your pet!).

Thanks. And now Hill's announces, too, that it will recall its "Savory
Cuts" foods:

http://www.hillspet.com/menu_foods/Menu_Foods_en_US.htm

I'm amazed at how many foods are affected. When they started talking
about Hills, Iams and Eukaneuba, it got my attention.

It is amazing how many foods are involved. I read that one company makes
food for 60 different brancds, it can get involved. Piglet and Sooter Dog
will both get new food when I figure out what is left! Gramby

Dry foods are not effected. Cinder and Beauty are on dry foods with
toona ans pounce as treats, so they are safe.

Ditto he Anas is a fussy eater and eats only kibble; and ignores
treats, so we're good.

Nevertheless it's kind of astounding to think that almost every pouch
pet food in the US is contaminated - it's as shocking as the e.coli on
greens this past summer....
