    Big pet food recall in CBS news
    I know how much we all love our pets. There are many, many name brand foods on this list - mostly cans and moist pouches. This company manufactures for some of the big boys, including Iams and Eukanaba. It's caused a few deaths - kidney failure.

    Here's the list of recall so far - there's a separate list for cat and for dog:

    FYI: Iams and Eukanaba is not on the list. Authority, Nutro are some of the items recalled.

    The recall is limited to "cuts and gravy" style pet food in cans and pouches manufactured at two of the Fund's United States facilities. These products are both manufactured and sold under private-label and are contract-manufactured for some national brands.

    Iams and Eukanaba
    Iams and Eukanaba, are on CNN as one of the foods with the problem!


    PS: Pets Warehouse doesn't sell those brands, do to the fact they are owned by Proctor Gamble who test their products on animals.

    P&G Pet Care Announces Voluntary Participation in Menu Foods' Nationwide U.S. and Canadian Recall of Specific Canned and Small Foil Pouch 'Wet' Cat and Dog Foods

    How to read Iams and Eukanuba product codes. (PRNewsFoto/P&G Pet Care)

    DAYTON, OH UNITED STATES 03/16/2007


    DAYTON, Ohio, March 16, 2007 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the recent
    Menu Foods, Inc. nationwide recall of wet pet foods, P&G Pet Care has
    announced a voluntary recall in the United States and Canada on specific 3
    oz., 5.5 oz., 6 oz. and 13.2 oz. canned and 3 oz. and 5.3 oz. foil pouch
    "wet" cat and dog food products manufactured by Menu Foods Inc. Emporia,
    Kansas plant with the code dates of 6339 through 7073 followed by the plant
    code 4197. This voluntary recall is part of a larger product recall by Menu
    Foods Inc., a contract manufacturer that makes a small portion of canned
    and foil pouch 'wet' cat foods for Iams and Eukanuba as well as other
    non-P&G brands. There have been a small number of reported cases of cats
    from the US (none in Canada) becoming sick and developing signs of kidney
    failure. The signs of kidney failure include loss of appetite, vomiting,
    and lethargy. P&G Pet Care has received no case reports involving dogs.
    (Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20070316/CLF113)
    This voluntary product recall involves discontinuation of all retail
    sales and product retrieval from consumers. Consumers should stop using the
    affected products immediately, and consult with a veterinarian if any
    symptoms are present in their pet. All Iams and Eukanuba products carry a
    100 percent guarantee, and consumers can receive a refund for recalled
    products. For more information, consumers can contact the company at
    1-800-882-1591 or visit http://www.Iams.com and http://www.Eukanuba.com for details.
    To read can product codes, refer to the bottom of the can. The first
    four numbers of the second line of numbers are the date code, and the
    following four numbers indicate the plant code. For example, if the second
    line begins with four numbers from 6339 to 7073 followed by the plant code
    4197, then the can should be recalled. For foil pouches, the code numbers
    are located at the lower left hand corner on the back of the pouch. The
    date and plant codes appear in the third group of numbers, beginning an
    11-digit sequence. See http://www.Iams.com and http://www.Eukanuba.com for illustrated
    details.
    P&G Pet Care is taking this proactive step out of an abundance of
    caution, because the health and well-being of pets is paramount in the
    mission of Iams and Eukanuba. Tests of some affected product have not
    revealed the cause of sickness, and testing will continue until a better
    understanding of the facts has been achieved. All other canned and small
    foil wet pouch products produced at other plants are not affected by this
    issue. Iams and Eukanuba "dry" products are not manufactured at Menu Foods
    and not affected by this issue. Iams and Eukanuba biscuits, treats and
    sauces are not affected by this issue.
    P&G Pet Care has informed the Food and Drug Administration and the
    Canadian Food Inspection Agency on this issue. The company regrets any
    inconvenience to its consumers and retail customers.

    If your cat or dog ate any of the pet foods recalled last week by Menu Foods and isn't showing any dramatic symptoms of kidney failure -- including vomiting, refusal to eat, lethargy or increased drinking or urination -- that doesn't necessarily mean you are out of the woods, veterinarians warn.

    "There are two categories of kidney failure -- acute and chronic," said Neil Shaw, chief medical officer for NYC Veterinary Specialists & Cancer Treatment Center in Manhattan. "Initially, there was an outburst of acute cases, but now we are beginning to see more chronic cases as well."

    Acute kidney failure is a sudden, major loss of kidney function that the body cannot adjust to, resulting in a very sick animal in a very short period of time. But with chronic kidney failure, "the damage to the kidneys happened over time, and the body has had a chance to get used to it," often over the course of weeks, he said.

    Cathy Langston, of the Manhattan-based Animal Medical Center's renal-medicine service, said that some cats or dogs may have been mildly affected by the tainted food, but have not acted sick enough for owners to bring them into the vet. "Seventy-five percent of patients we have seen have been drinking and urinating excessively," she said. "But that means that 25 percent of owners did not perceive a change."

    Indeed, in chronic cases, symptoms can be subtle, Langston noted. "The cat might go to the food bowl, but may not consume as much. The weight loss might be very gradual, so you don't notice it on a day to day basis. And vomiting may be only occasional, and attributed to hair balls."

    Both types of kidney failure are serious, Shaw said. "With acute kidney failure, there is a danger of death from the initial episode," which is typically treated with hospitalization and fluids. "With chronic kidney failure, it is typically not an immediate danger," but lost kidney function cannot be regained, and the goal of treatment is to stop any more damage.

    Veterinarians can use a urine test to screen for kidney failure, and might follow it up with bloodwork or an ultrasound.

    Exclamation Food recall = Rat poison
    March 23, 2007 — ABC News has learned that investigators have determined that a rodent-killing chemical is the toxin in the tainted pet food that has killed several animals.

    A source close to the investigation tells ABC News that the rodenticide, which the source says is illegal to use in the United States, was on wheat that was imported from China and used by Menu Foods in nearly 100 brands of dog and cat food.

    Watch "World News" for full details on the extent of the poisoning.

    A news conference is scheduled for this afternoon by experts in Albany, N.Y., where scientists at the state's food laboratory made the discovery a week after a massive recall of 60 million cans and pouches was issued.

    The chemical is called aminopterin.

    If there is such a thing as a lighter side, this might be it: Last weekend, after a few days of our Squeak (9 year old black cat) throwing up, we went back over everything he could have possibly eaten, since he's usually limited to dry Iams Indoor. He does steal the dog's food occasionally, but that was 95% dry also. So we tried to convince ourselves that it's hairball season for him and that was the reason.

    Then it hit us! We bought him 2 little cans of gravy food for Christmas and he ate one then and just had the other one a week or so ago. TERROR ! We couldn't remember what kind it was, only that he turned up his nose after a few bites.

    So, Saturday morning, we called Dr Sharon and made an appt for Monday, just in case. And this is why we love vets: When she found out we were coming in Mon, she called and said - bring him in now! Squeak's too good of a friend to wait. So we took him out and went for the whole Senior blood and urine panel, since he hasn't had anything serious going on for 8 years.

    The vet called us SUNDAY morning to tell us all was fine, that he had the blood values of a healthy kitten. OK, alls good, we're thrilled!

    This morning, we're trying to lay out food and treats for the pet sitter, so our "kids" will get their usual stuff, and at the bottom of the bin we found.....

    the 2nd can of wet food we bought him as a treat. We apparently only talked about giving it to him and forgot.

    I sure hope that everyone here is as lucky as we were with this whole thing - we have a newer puppy since November and have been trying different foods, trying to find something she would eat - The previous owners had her on canned gravy foods, which we just hate to deal with, so we lucked out........

    Even if your pet is healthy, you should get a blood test done as baseline, to guage any changes.

    More food recalled
    Now a release from Del Monte is revealing that the company will voluntarily recall select product codes of its pet treat products sold under the Jerky Treats, Gravy Train Beef Sticks and Pounce Meaty Morsels brands as well as select dog snack and wet dog products sold under private label brands.

    This is just ridiculous!

    More and more brands and types of food added to the deadly list every few days.

    We thought we were ok because we don't give any of our pets the gravy stuff, but now its dry food and snack food is also on the list??

    I think they're all going on a human-food diet and we'll all go down together when we find out the same stuff is in people food.

    no prob, thanks for passing it on too!

    The sad thing is, is the press is being notified BEFORE vet clinics nationwide.

    We are getting calls from justifiably concerned clients and we're practically as lost as they are. Now, every pet that is ill and was on this food has to be treated as a possible case of renal failure. We are drained, physically and emotionally.

    On a humorous note, I just got back from the clinic where we had an after hour emergency. (yup, you guessed it, possible renal failure) I thought it would be funny to pull an April Fool's joke on Dr. Steph. I told her with all the craziness from this pet food recall I didn't want to help with emergencies anymore. Yeah, my arm is still pretty sore where she stabbed me with that needle.

    Thumbs up Good news from Wellness dog food
    Wellness is not involved in the industry product recall and does not use
    wheat gluten
    .

    April 4, 2007

    Dear Pet Parents,


    As you may already know, Wellness brand pet food is NOT affected by the
    product recall involving wheat gluten and other pet food manufacturers. We
    do not use wheat gluten in our products, and none of our products are made
    in the Menu Foods Emporia plant that is the main focus of the product
    recall. All Wellness products, including canned, dry, treats and
    supplements can be enjoyed safely.

    Consistent with our mission of providing uncompromising nutrition for dogs
    and cats, Wellness is committed to healthy, high-quality and natural pet
    food ingredients and recipes. Our Wellness products, for example, do not
    contain wheat, corn or soy or any artificial preservatives, flavors or
    colors.

    As with other pet food companies, consumers have called us to ask about
    Wellness's quality control processes and ingredient sourcing.

    * All of our products are produced according to OUR proprietary
    recipes with OUR specified ingredients and OUR quality standards.

    * We require a complete cleaning and sanitation between each product
    run to help ensure the purity of our products. We take quality very
    seriously, and we go above and beyond what is expected in the industry. Our
    facilities are regularly audited by Cook & Thurber, a HUMAN FOOD auditing
    firm, and our own employees also monitor the quality control processes at
    all manufacturing plants.

    * Our ingredients are primarily sourced in the United States and
    Canada. We source some unique ingredients internationally-for example lamb
    and venison from New Zealand. However, we do not source anything from the
    supplier in China at the center of the recent pet food recalls.

    Our pets are part of our families. While Wellness brand pet food was not
    affected, we express our sympathies to the animals, and their pet parents,
    who have suffered as a result of this unfortunate event.

    As always, if you have any questions, we are happy to help and would love to hear from you. You can reach us at 1-800-225-0904.
