Animals Sick from Pet Food

Menu Foods initiated a precautionary recall of several brands of "cuts and gravy" style pet food in cans and pouches manufactured between Dec. 3, 2006 and March 6 in two of its U.S. manufacturing facilities, according to a company press release. Although the company has yet to identify the source, it is looking into the introduction of wheat gluten from a new supplier as a possible cause of the problem. One woman, Kathleen Schurman believes tainted food might have been responsible for the premature death of her 6-year-old cat. In a prepared statement, Paul K. Henderson, president and CEO of Menu Foods, said, "We take these complaints very seriously and, while we are still looking for a specific cause, we are acting to err on the side of caution."
