Pet Food Recall: PETA Wants Dry Dog & Cat Food Tested for Rat Poison
-------------------------------------------------------------​-------------------

On Friday it was determined that rat poison was found in the pet food that has been blamed for the deaths of at least 16 cats and dogs, but scientists said they still don't know how it got there and predicted more animal deaths would be linked to it. The Associated Press reports that after the announcement, the company that produced the food expanded its recall to include all 95 brands of the 'cuts and gravy' style food, regardless of when they were produced. The company also said it would take responsibility for pet medical expenses incurred as a result of the food.



I was concerned about this also, why would it be in one and not the other plus they don't even no for sure what they are dealing with
they must have reports, cocncerns of other pets dieing or getting sick from the dry food for them to want this.

oops didn't post the main part rant


Now PETA has issued a press release that asks if dry food should also suspected in the poisonings and is demanding that Menu foods and Iams immediately recall all dry foods until they are tested for safety.

"Iams and other companies should be held responsible for the companion animal deaths if they had knowledge of the food contamination issue and refused or neglected to alert the public immediately," says PETA Vice President Bruce Friedrich. "PETA has called for investigations and, if appropriate, cruelty charges against Menu Foods in Canada and Iams in Ohio."

The release adds: Consumers are now worried that their animals may have become ill after consuming dry pet food manufactured by Menu Foods, prompting PETA to demand the company immediately recall all dry pet food products until they have been chemically tested for safety. The Seattle-based law firm that is handling a class-action lawsuit against Menu Foods has said it is receiving numerous reports from people attributing their animals' illness to dry food.
