The FDA is now reporting that melamine has been found in the suspect wheat gluten, in the recalled pet food, and in the urine and kidney from a cat that died in the intitial food trial conducted by Menu Foods. Melamine is used in fertilizers in Asia, to make plastic kitchenware, and Magic Eraser cleaning sponges. No amount of melamine should be found in pet food. Not surprisingly, people are beginning to question the safety of dry pet foods. Some are reporting that dry food has sickened their pets. And PETA is asking for a wider recall.
You can find out much more on the recall on my Pet Food Recall Archive Page.
