    I found the complete list of the foods involved

    http://media.corporate-ir.net/media_...er_Handout.pdf

    One of those is Nutro Natural Choice in the pouch, which I got for Petey a few weeks ago, because I had a coupon for a free pouch, and I used it to stuff his Kong. According to the pouch, he'd need at least 9 1/3 pouches a day, and at .78 a day, it would end up costing me approximately $218 a month.. needless to say I was going to stick to the dry food. The Nutro site said they were recalling as a preventative measure, as they had no reports of deaths linked directly to them as of yet. But still.. it's pretty scary to think about.

    Hi everyone.. according to CBC newsworld.. there have been no complaints from Canadian pet owners yet..but, one of the manufacturing plants is in Streetsville, Ontario & produces 48 different brands of dog/cat food. The link for the list of recalled products is: www.menufoods.com/recall/.

    Well we should know more about the effects of feeding the Nutro Natural choice pouches...
    Harley has been eating 2 pouches a day since Christmas, he has had 1 in the morn with kibble nd 1 at night with kibble.

    We see the vet at 12:30 today for the blood tests...

    Wish us luck, we will let you know how this all turns out...

    BTW he has been acting normal and no signs of sickness

    The Menu Pet Food situation appears to be much more deadly then they admitted to over the weekend.

    “Pet Food Co. Knew Of Problem Last Month
    March 20, 2007
    ________________________________________
    (CBS/AP) As many as one in six animals died in tests of suspect dog and cat food by the manufacturer last month after complaints the products were poisoning pets around the country, the government said Monday.

    "That's a huge number, considering when you feed pet food no animal should die," says CBS News The Early Show veterinarian Dr. Debbye Turner.

    A federal investigation is focusing on wheat gluten as the likely source of contamination that sparked a recall last Friday of 60 million cans and pouches of the suspect food, said Stephen F. Sundlof, the Food and Drug Administration's top veterinarian.

    "I'm certain someone's going to figure this out because there are a lot of pet foods involved, a lot of pets involved and a lot of veterinarians who are upset," Dr. Ann Hohenhaus of New York's Animal Medical Center told CBS News.

    Wheat gluten, a protein source, is commonly used as filler. “……



    What is also disturbing is that ONE company makes so much of the food that’s fed to animals. I don’t think I will ever purchase any of the brands affected in this recall again.

    Good luck! I have a feeling that if it was going affect Harley, he would have already shown signs of illness.. but I'll send positive thoughts your way.

    Petey only ate the one pouch, one time, about 3 weeks ago, so I'm sure he's ok. It seems like the majority of animals affected were cats, probably because of their small size, and most likely the wet food was their only source of food.
