Major Pet food recall

Posted: March 22, 2007 in General Area

If you haven’t heard, but there is a major pet food recall (Read Here) , of over 50 major name brand cat and dog food.

“Menu Foods is recalling several brands including such well-known names as Nutro, Iams, and Eukanuba.

Two other companies, Nestle Purina Petcare Company and Hills Pet Nutrition are also voluntarily recalling some of their products.

This recall affects the “cuts and gravy” style wet pet food with packaging marked December 3 through March 6.

Unfortunately, my cat, was one of the affected, and oddly enough, I had posted here, a short description of the symptoms a few weeks prior to  the actual recall. The symptoms I described were exactly identical to the common signs of a dying animal. I had fed her one of the brands listed, and fortunately for me, I had saved the blood test results and it does in fact show that she passed from symptoms that look like cancer (a rupturing tumor is what the vet guessed initially), but in fact,  after speaking to the veternarian, he did conclude that she passed from liver poisoning, at a young age. I intend to pursue this legally now.
