Rat poison in the pet food

One thing that I never saw in any of the early news reports was that the problem with menu foods was discovered while they were doing their own taste tests of the products.

This all began because when Menu Foods was performing routine taste tests on its latest shipments. Twenty-five cats and fifteen dogs participated in the tests; nine of the cats died. In the wake of the recall, one dog and four more cats have died. The food seems to cause kidney damage, and cats are particularly vulnerable to that sort of thing. Menu Foods believes the problem is in the wheat gluten they used, but at this point it's all conjecture.

Now that the FDA is actually looking they found the melamine.

Fifty-seven people are being treated in hospital after eating food containing rat poison at a restaurant in China.

Police are investigating the incident at the family business in Zhejiang province's Yongkang city, the official Xinhua News Agency said.

They said a number of children were among those in hospital.

It is getting worse for pets, plus the FDA still doesn't know where all of the Chinese wheat gluten went to.

New products have been added to the recall list. Purina's Alpo prime cuts in gravy.

Also Delmonte has added a number of products including doggie treats listed in the link below.

I think at this point it would be good to come up with a list that is known to be safe. Hills, Purina and Delmonte have recalls of their own which were not listed in the original Menu recall. Despite the fact that the above recalls are recent. Menu claims all of it's foods are now safe?
