PETA Demands Investigation on Pet Food

PETA sent an urgent letter to Daniel G. McChesney, director of the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine Office of Surveillance and Compliance, after finding reports indicating that Iams and other pet food companies may have known as early as February 20 that their products might have been tainted. The letter urged McChesney to investigate Iams and other companies that sell food supplied by Menu Foods and take appropriate actions if the companies knew, yet withheld, information about pet-food contamination. "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. 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.
