Pet-food recall continues to widen

Pet-food recall continues to widen

2 hours, 24 minutes ago


Royal Canin USA said on Friday it was voluntarily recalling all of its dry pet food products containing rice protein concentrate after it found a melamine derivative in some products.


Melamine is an industrial chemical used to make plastics and fertilizers.
The announcement is the latest in a widening recall of dog and cat food products across the United States since mid-March. More than 100 brands of pet food have been recalled after reports of cases of pets developing kidney failure.


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has received more than 14,000 reports of pet illnesses so far. Officials have confirmed just 16 deaths but believe the actual number could be higher.


Royal Canin said it had not confirmed cases of illness in pets due to its products.


"We are taking this proactive stance to avoid any confusion for our customers about which Royal Canin USA products are safe and which products may be affected," the company said in a statement.


The company will also no longer use Chinese suppliers for any of its vegetable proteins, it said.

They know they need to put a recall in for every last pet food out there. what's shocking is that the most expensive brands are the ones using the shitty products.



I'm also wondering when or if they will drop the bombshell that it is found in people food too!

Re: Pet-food recall continues to widen

This really makes me angry. It shouldn't be taking them this long to add more things to the list. These companies know their products were dangerous.

I hope they get punished for this crap.

Maybe sooner rather than later - turns out some of the pet food wound up being fed to pigs at a couple of commercial farms. No word on whether any of those pigs have already been slaughtered and sold for human consumption.

Mind you at that point it would be a low level of contamination, but if you're in fragile health for some reason it could cause complications.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

I shudder to think what's really going on with our food supply. The FDA and the Dept. of Agriculture are too slack on companies.
