Cat Owner Files Legal Action Against FDA in Pet Food Deaths

You know, we really didn't intend to devote all our time on this blog to yelling "the sky is falling" and reporting terrible disasters that might kill someone's kitties. But sometimes we find something that really could use a bit more publicity, and while we likely don't add much, we feel we should add what we can. Anyway.....

Don Earl (of Pet Food Recall Facts) has gone to federal court to
force the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to “perform its duty” and investigate other toxins -- besides melamine -- as the culprit in this year’s massive pet food recall.
More information available here, here, and here.

Also, Nutro had trouble getting some 'food' into the country recently, if we are reading this document correctly.

Via Itchmo, an invaluable resource, even if it does focus more on D*GS.

Mostly it was canned food that was affected by the recalls and mostly foods in the US and Canada, wasn't it?

Great article and thanks for all the links. We couldn't make heads or tails of the last one so we'll take your word for it!

Gemini - Yeah, one or two dry foods got recalled, but for the most part problems were canned food and were mostly in the US & Canada.

If anyone wants to check for yourself, there are lists here and here. This blog also has recall lists and current information.
