Animal Health Alert: Pet Food Recall
March 19, 2007

On Friday, the US Food and Drug Administration issued a notice that Menu Foods, Inc., a private label pet food manufacturer, was recalling certain lots of its "cuts and gravy" style dog and cat food produced in its facility in Emporia, Kansas, between December 3, 2006 and March 6, 2007 (see attached FDA News Release). The recall was prompted after reported instances where dogs and cats developed kidney failure after eating the affected pet food. The products are packaged in cans and pouches under numerous brand names (see attached list) and are marketed nationwide by many pet food retailers. Customers who have any of these products should immediately stop feeding them to their pets. They should consult with their veterinarian if their pet became ill after eating the food. Customers with questions, or to determine if the cans/pouches they have are from the affected lots, may contact the company at 1-866-895-2708. Veterinarians, please report any suspected local cases of pets developing kidney failure after consuming these products. Complete the Animal Disease/Death Reporting form and fax it to our office at 562-401-7112, or contact us by phone at 562-401-7088 or 877-747-2243.
