And even more Pet Food is recalled.

Re: And even more Pet Food is recalled.


There appears to be a daily news announcement of a new
brand of food being recalled.

Here is today’s story….

The third pet food company since late last week has added
its name to the pet food recall list, out of fear that
contaminated wheat gluten may have tainted its products.

San Francisco-based Del Monte Pet Products is voluntarily
recalling Jerky Treats Beef Flavour Dog Snacks, Gravy Train
Beef Sticks Dog Snacks and Pounce Meaty Morsels Moist Chicken
Flavor Cat Treats.

Del Monte’s announcement immediately follows the weekend recall
of one of the best-known brands of dog food, Purina. The company
pulled its Alpo Prime Cuts in Gravy product from U.S. store shelves.

Both companies have said that the wheat gluten supplied to them from
a Chinese plant contained melamine — a chemical used in fertilizers
in Asia and to make plastics and laminates.

Hill’s Pet Nutrition said late Friday that its Prescription Diet m/d
Feline dry cat food included the tainted wheat gluten. The FDA said
the source was the same unidentified company. Hill’s, a division of
Colgate-Palmolive Co., is so far the only company to recall any dry pet food.

Many have asked exactly then, what food is Safe to Feed?

I am in the process of working on a special pet food report,
which I will send to all my subscribers for Fr**ee.

The most important points to remember:

None of the Quality, natural brands have been affected, such as
those produced by Natura Pet Products.

Wheat Gluten appears to be the source of the toxins.

None of the premium natural foods use wheat gluten, as it is
a poor protein source for pets, and poorly digestible.

It is really just a filler.

Stick to premium “Natural” brands.

Ensure that animal protein is the first ingredient.

Avoid pet food sold in a grocery store.

Make some food yourself.

Add in Raw food as a portion of your pet’s diet.


P.S. I am holding a Fr**ee Pet Health Teleseminar
tonight dealing with the Pet Food Recall and what
foods are safe to feed to your pet.

You still have time to register by going to:

    I have two cats who will only eat Friskies w/gravy. I see wheat gluten listed on label. As far as I can see, friskies has not been included in recall,but it makes me nervous to see that wheat gluten is in product. They also only will eat only friskies dry food.. Are we ok for now??????
