      Pet Food Recall - American Nutrition Now Part Of Pet Food Recall
      By Mike Baron
      Apr 28, 2007

      Pet Food Recall claimed another corporate victim On Friday. Diamond Pet
Foods announced it was withdrawing a limited number of canned products
manufactured by American Nutrition. American Nutrition Inc. became the final
of five pet food companies that Wilbur-Ellis supplied with tainted rice
protein to recall a variety of products, according to reports.

      The company notes that the recall is limited to three specific canned
products: Diamond Lamb & Rice Formula for Dogs 13 oz. cans, Chicken Soup for
the Pet Lover's Soul Kitten Formula 5.5 oz. cans, and Chicken Soup for the Pet
Lover's Soul Puppy Formula 13 oz. cans.

      The products recalled were manufactured by American Nutrition for other
independent companies, and American Nutrition brands were not part of the
recall, the company said in a statement.

      Many of the companies recalling food said in statements on their Web
sites that American Nutrition added the rice protein concentrate to their
products without their knowledge or approval, reports the AP.

      "It appears that ANI had been adding the unauthorized rice protein
concentrate to Harmony Farms products for some time and only told the company
when the FDA was about to conclude that some of ANI's rice protein concentrate
(supplied by Wilber-Ellis) was contaminated with melamine," said a statement
on the Harmony Farms site.

      Other companies making similar allegations are The Blue Buffalo Co.,
Natural Balance, Canine Caviar, Diamond Pet Foods and Mulligan Stew Pet Food.
