Petfood Recall Expands to China

The pet food recall continues to expand this week.  Purina added a variety of Alpo wet dog food and now dry dog foods are also coming under fire (the specialty variety sold in vets offices).

The FDA has been unable to confirm reports of Canadian rat poison in dog and cat food, however they have found a Chinese pesticide named Melanene that is commonly used in Chinese wheat production.  The chemical has been found in the dog and cat food as well as in cat and dog livers that have become ill or have deceased.
