Default Poison possibly affecting one brand of DRY food!!!

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070330/...et_food_recall

Why will the FDA not let us know what company is affected? This is very scary. They should at least announce the dry food brands that COULD be affected we have a right not to feed the "possible poison crap" to our pets!

That's terrible, they should most definitely tell us the brand!!! Or are they just gonna wait for some dogs to die and then recall it. They don't even have to recall it just make a warning that it could be affected. That's just wrong!

Cats really got blasted in these recalls. I wonder if they just don't put the same effort into Quality Control for cat foods?

My question is if this is the ONLY dry food affected. Hard to believe with all the wet foods affected.

I would not trust ANY dry food that was involved in the recall.

Better to be safe then sorry.

There are many companies that dont use Menu foods and dont put the wheat glutton into their product.

These companies look at "how much will we have to pay in lawsuits/vet bills from the effected animal's owners VS. how much will it cost to recall said product". If the latter is more, then the food stays on the shelf. Same as with cars.

Not to endorse a certain food but I know the food I feed (Canidae) has NOTHING to do with Menu foods, and all their ingridents come from the US.

I agree. The answers I got from Canidae were very satisfactory and I can't say that for the other company I contacted. I posted those correspondances somewhere in these threads.

I feel confidence in Canidae and Felidae.

I feel that any company that used Menu Foods for any products, dry OR wet, is not a company I can trust right now and I trust companies that won't answer that question even less.

Even without wheat gluten in a product, I feel that this kind of outsourcing without oversight on ingredients and quality is a bad bet.

Yeah my little kitters have been eating Felidae for 4 months or so.

I feel confident in both companies.

I just dont trust that the pet food companies will recall the dry food unless there are a lot of cases and they feel they HAVE to. Because it would put a HUGE dent on their sales, and the companies might go under (as I suspect the peanut butter companies will after the saliminalla thing).

ok I'm hijacking for a sec. sorry! But you guys who feed Felidae, I'm gonna switch to that from purina cat chow so what formula do you feed? I'm thinking chicken and rice in case they have allergies to what is in cat and kitten but I also heard cats tend to like cat and kitten better so what formula do you feed and how do your cats like and do on it?


back to topic...My dad (Mr.why should we switch off of Pedigree?)thinks the reason all the dry foods and non affected are doing voluntary recalls is that if they don't then there food will be inspected and people (with the media watching the recall so closely) will discover what nasty stuff is actually in their pets foods (yum, Gluten, Lard and skunk that was found in road liver). I don't know if that's what I think or the companies are just being responsible but it is one way to think about it *shrugs*
