Menu Foods, a Ontario, Canada-based company, has recalled dog food sold throughout North America under 48 brands and cat food sold under 40 brands including Lams, Nutro, and Eukanuba. The food was distributed by major retailers such as Wal-Mart, Kroger, and Safeway. An unknown number of cats and dogs had suffered kidney failure and about 10 have died after eating the affected pet food, according to the company. Two other companies — Nestle Purina PetCare Co. and Hill’s Pet Nutrition Inc. — as a precaution, have voluntarily recalled some products made by Menu Foods. Many stores that sold the affected brands have pulled packages off shelves. The recall covers the company’s “cuts and gravy” style food, which consists of chunks of meat in gravy, sold in cans and small foil pouches from December 3rd to March 6th. Menu Foods makes pet food for 17 of the top 20 North American retailers. It is also a contract manufacturer for the top branded pet food companies, including Procter & Gamble Co.
A complete list of the recalled products along with product codes, descriptions and production dates was available from the Menu Foods Web site, http://www.menufoods.com/recall. The company also designated two phone numbers that pet owners could call for information — 866-463-6738 and 866-895-2708.
