Re: The Pet Food Recall has affected thousands of pets.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////

A good Monday Morning to you all.

The Pet Food Recall has affected thousands of pets.

There are a small number of “reported” deaths, but that
statistic is likely higher, as there is no central reporting agency.

I have had discussions with several colleagues, and most of them
susoect having 1-2 cases in their practices.

I suspect that the number of affected dogs and cats is in the
thousands.

And on top of all this, it was a completely preventable tragedy.

First Menu pet Foods saw kidney failure in a feeding trial over a
month ago- Yet they did NOTHING to ensure that whatever caused the
kidney failure was in many of their other foods.

Second the rat poison that is causing this is likely in a “filler”,
wheat gluten, which has NO nutritious value.

Wheat gluten should NOT be in any Pet Food.

Now I hear that still some of the food is for sale in some stores.

Here is more information on that story..

Menu Foods Inc., based in Streetsville, Ont., said in a news release
Saturday that some of its recalled “cuts and gravy” style wet pet
food reportedly remain on store shelves despite the recall it
issued last week.

On March 16, the company issued a recall of?? 95 brands of pet food manufactured
between Dec. 3, 2006 and March 6, 2007 at two of its U.S. plants. The products were
sold in cans and foil pouches in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.

Deaths of at least 14 cats and dogs have been linked to the contaminated pet food.

Store owners should take all affected varieties of the brands involved in the recall
off store shelves as a precaution, the company said Saturday, not just those
manufactured in the given time frame.

“Menu Foods remains concerned that consumers are able to purchase recalled items,” the
release reads. “There is no known risk from items not listed on the recall list but an
abundance of caution is called for in this situation.”

A complete list of recalled wet pet food, which is broken down into 42 brands of cat
food and 53 brands of dog food, has been posted the company’s web site.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in a release updated on Saturday, said pet
owners who have any of the products listed on the recall should immediately stop
feeding them to their pets.

If dogs and cats who have consumed the products show signs of kidney failure, including
loss of appetite, lethargy and vomiting, owners should contact their veterinarians.

Rat poison discovered

On Friday, New York State agriculture officials said the wet pet food made by Menu Foods
contains aminopterin, a rat poison that can cause cancer, birth defects and kidney damage in dogs and cats.

Paul Henderson, president of Menu Foods, told reporters at a news conference on Friday
that the company has no idea how the rat poison got into its products, and he offered
an apology to pet owners.

He said the company is relieved that the “root of the issue” has been discovered.

“This important discovery caps an unprecedented search by top experts,” he said.
“Dedicated and knowledgeable researchers at universities, independent laboratories,
and our own veterinary consultants worked tirelessly to defend and protect our cats
and dogs.”

The FDA said it is working with Menu Foods to ensure the recall is effective.
Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-866-895-2708.
