Dog Food Recall

With a recall affecting dozens of brands of dog and cat food, the Tinley Park shelter isn’t taking any chances. The shelter, like many others, has tossed out roughly two cases of suspect food. Pet supply stores and local veterinarians were fielding calls Tuesday from nervous pet owners. The contaminated food has been linked to kidney failure and a small number of pet deaths. Well-known names such as Eukanuba, Iams and Science Diet are at least partly affected by the recall, which covers dog food sold throughout North America under 51 brands, and cat food sold under 40 brands. Some of the food is sold under store brands and carried by chains including Wal-Mart, Kroger, which operates Food-4-Less, and Safeway, which owns Dominick’s. “It’s one of the larger recalls that has taken place in the pet industry,â€� according to Gary Roulo, of Capital Pet Supplies in Country Club Hills.
