OK we have gotten the last of the 5 manufacturers that got rice protein concentrate..but, its not quite over yet there is apearently a second import company that got a second shipment or part of the original shipment from the same chinese source. This company has elected not to go public yet and have decided to exercise their "right" to conduct their own test on the rice protein concentrate they recieved. No one knows if they shipped any out to other pet food manufacturers yet or even if those pet food manufacturers have been notified. Well I guess the FDA knows but they aren't telling just like they wouldn't tell us who the 5 companies were from the 1st shipment!! I think that the FDA should report the names rigth away so the consumers can make a more informed choice...but, I guess they don't want to cause any profit loss to a company if it turns out that the food isn't contaminated...so we wait and hope we aren't feeding the wrong food...

I am on several yahoo lists and also check sites like petconnection.com and Howl911.com and itchmo.com
I also watch things like C-span etc and listen to the news at work.

I guess I am a news junkie and anything dog catches my ear and I have become way to obsessed about this recall thing.

me too, I appreciate knowing that you'll let us know as soon as you hear something... I check pet connection, the Amer Vet Assoc site and the FDA site.

For some reason the FDA site seems to be about 24-72 hours behind when others post recalls. I have started a new job this week and as such I am not going to be able to track the petfood recall as well. I see that a few others are doing a good job of staying ontop of things though. :)
