In addition to the people who do not read thoroughly, many people do simply want to be extra cautious. They are still finding new foods that may be contaminated, as demonstrated by the new announcement that some treats may be affected. The affected wheat gluten was NOT just sold to Hill's, it is the SAME batch of wheat gluten as sold to Menu Foods. The one batch could be quite widely distributed. Given that wheat gluten is the affected ingredient, it makes sense for those who wish to be (possibly overly) cautious to avoid all pet products with wheat gluten in them until it is known for sure that those products are in no way affected.cinderbaylabs said:I am not sure anybody even reads these things fully. If they did there would be less panic.
Manufacturers are staying on top of this.
Even if your pet food contains wheat gluten it appears the wheat gluten that is suspect was sold to Hill's and used in their Rx Cat food.
