Re: Pet Food Recall


I have a friend who used to do pesticide analysis and pesticide residue testing. Her bet is that it will turn out to be in the processing of the gluten - likely a solvent. Of course it could also be a pesticide that was illegally used and not tested for.

One of our local vets sent some interesting stuff about animal feeds around to a local rescue list. It may be too gross to post here, so if you'd like to read it, email me off list and I'll send it to you.

Is that what they think the cause is -- tainted wheat gluten? I still can't imagine tainted with WHAT that would cause these symptoms. Does anyone know any more?

Kitty,

That's a good thing, according to a respected local vet. His contention is that the mooshy kinds of cans are fine, but the "cuts and gravy" kind are those that contain the presumably tainted wheat gluten.

My cats have a primarily dry diet. About once a month they share a can of wet food, but it's always the mooshy kind. They will not eat anything chunky - will just lick the gravy off it. They are all fine.

As far as the "premium" brands go, my understanding is that the plant that makes these foods has something like 400 recipes. I would think that better, more healthful recipes (premium) would still include some of the same ingredients used in less expensive recipes. And maybe better, less grisly cuts are used in the pricier ones but those cuts still come from the same meat as the others. And, of course some aren't any more healthful than others, they just market it that way.

It looks like everything affected was wet food, we don't feed any of
that to our cats & dogs. But I was very surprised to see the brand names
on the recall list. Eukanuba and Iams, I thought those were supposed to
be "premium" brands - do they really just slap a different label on the
cans or do they make different formulas that just all happened to have
that poison in it?
I'm starting to get to the point where I don't want to eat anything I
didn't grow myself, and maybe my animals should start that too. Too
scary.

I'm telling myself that Fancy
Feast boxes say "product of Thailand"
so they weren't made in the problem
factories.  Hope I'm right.
That will make the indulgence acceptable.
