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.
