UPDATE ON PET FOOD RECALL - MARCH 31, 2007

Sent: March 31, 2007


The Food and Drug Administration said yesterday that it had not found rat poison in pet food that has been killing animals, but that it had found melamine, a chemical commonly used to make plastic cutlery that is also used in fertilizer.

The nationwide pet food recall, which had involved only so-called wet foods all manufactured by Menu Foods and sold under a variety of brand names was expanded to include one brand of dry cat food, Prescription Diet m/d Feline, made by Hills Pet Nutrition.

The brand was found to have been made with a batch of wheat gluten shipped to the United States from China that the F.D.A. said was laced with melamine.
