Pet food recall list is again expanded

May 3, 2007

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says pet food manufacturer Menu Foods Inc. has again expanded its recall of wet cat and dog foods.

Menu Foods previously recalled wet cat and dog food produced with adulterated wheat gluten. The company is now expanding that recall to select other products that do not include the contaminated wheat gluten, but which were manufactured at Menu Foods plants in which the wheat gluten was used.

The company says the newly recalled foods might have been cross-contaminated.

As a result, additional pet food items in the United States and Canada have been added to the recall list, as well as two varieties produced for European markets.

Consumers can contact Menu Foods for additional information at 866-895-2708. An updated list of all recalled products is available at the Menu Foods Web site at>
