Recalled Pet Foods!

As most people know, Iams and Eukanuba have recalled many foods due to renal (kidney) failure in dogs and cats (mostly cats.) The maker of the feed, Menu Foods, has disclosed that only 10 animals have died so far (1 dog, 9 cats), though 7 animals died in their testings of the contaminated foods (those bastards, they shouldnt be using animals to test something they know is deadly, then again this is P&G.)

While the most common brand names for the foods are Eukanuba and Iams, there are MANY other brands that Menu Foods produces feeds for. The complete list of recalled foods for cats and dogs are as followed:

Vegetarians eat wheat gluten, including the Chinese 'mock meat.'

Does the supplier of wheat gluten
make HUMAN food?

The Vegan Chick said...

I dont think the company makes human food.

Its also only a big problem in small animals (cats are much more affected than dogs).

The company says they cant identify why the wheat gluten (the only new change in the recipe) is causing deaths because they havent found anything wrong with it (that theyre telling the media at least).

Who could we contact to find out about vegan/vegetarian products (Morningstar frozen foods, etc.)containing a high quantuty of wheat gluten?
