Pet Food Recall List

Posted in Dog News News – The hidden world of dog food brands and pet treats became a little less obscure today with the announcement by Alabama-based Sunshine Mills, Inc., that their dog treats and biscuits are also being recalled due to the use of suspect wheat gluten from the same supplier that provided wheat gluten to Menu Foods. The recall stems from concerns batches of wheat gluten may be tainted with melamine, a substance with unknown toxicity to pets but which is not approved as a pet food ingredient. As with Menu Foods, this announcement reveals the extent to which brands, appearing to be independent and unique, are often in fact simply re-packaged or private labeled versions of a mass-market product produced by one specialty company. Sunshine Mill’s in-house brands subject to recall are: Nurture Chicken & Rice, Nurture Lamb &...

Dog Food Recall – Rat Poison – Aminopterin Link In Menu Foods

Posted in Dog News News – State officials in New York have detected a substance used both as a rat poison and anti-cancer drug, Aminopterin, in samples of suspect pet food. No explanation was given as to how the poison entered the food or when in the process the dog and cat foods became contaminated. Neither State nor Federal law enforcement agencies have indicated any criminal investigations are planned. According to Wikipedia, Aminopterin (4-aminopteroic acid) is a 4-amino analog of folic acid. It is a substance with properties that suppress the immune system (lower anti infection system strength in the body) and is commonly used in chemotherapy.
