    LAB REPORT ON ACETAMIONPHEN AND CYANURIC ACID


    Test results conducted by ExperTox, a fully accredited lab, confirmed the presence of acetamionphen and cyanuric acid in a mixture of Pet Pride "Turkey and Giblets Dinner" lot number APR 24 09, and Pet Pride "Mixed Grill" lot number SEP07 09. Additional tests have been requested to determine which variety, or if both, are adulterated with the substances. It is significant that melamine was not detected in the samples, as melamine is the marker for the Chinese grain products. The obvious conclusion is pet deaths were caused by Menu Foods illegally adding cyanuric acid which was adulterated with acetamionphen, rather than Chinese gluten which was adulterated with melamine.

    Original article here:
    http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_510984.html

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is investigating a Texas laboratory's finding of acetaminophen in dog and cat food, an agency spokesman said Monday.
    "We're very interested in being able to test these samples ourselves to determine the levels of those contaminants," said FDA spokesman Doug Arbesfeld. "What's significant is these things are there. They don't belong there."

    "With any poison, it's the amount that matters." said Dr. Wilson Rumbeiha, a Michigan State University pathologist who is working with the FDA on the pet food contamination investigation. His lab has screened for acetaminophen but found none, he said.


    Also interesting that the lab associated with the FDA looked but did not find acetaminophen. It seems odd to me that a manufacturer would add acetaminophen. I think unfortunately, we have to wait for the lab results to see if the FDA lab backs up what the Texas lab has found. Science is not always exact.

    In the mean time, it all kind of makes you want to make your own dog/cat food.

    As an aside acetaminophen is hard on your liver not as claimed on your kidneys. Still if it was put in knowingly (not proven) then yes string them up. But as yet it's still not verified that tylenol is in the food.
