New Findings In Pet Food Recall

March 30, 2007

The FDA has found a chemical used in plastics in the pet food that has been blamed in the deaths of cats and dogs across the country.

They say they have been unable to confirm that any rat poison was present in the food. The FDA says that the chemical melamine, sometimes used as a fertilizer, was found in the pet food.

The FDA is trying to determine whether the chemical could have made it in to any human food since it was also found in wheat gluten which is used as an ingredient.

Menu Foods recalled millions of containers of pet food earlier this month after reports of kidney failure in at least 16 pets.
