    Re: update on recall

    I can only imagine your panic. It's a terrible feeling.

    I'm really glad Bridgette's OK. I know how you feel. I don't know what I'd do if anything ever happened to Orchid.

    She's like my baby.

    You know, I tried to give Orchid those a long time ago. She also had "puppy bowels" with them.

    Hrmmm....

    Yeah Bridgette is my baby too. I was definitely freaking out! But she's okay so now we're switched to great food and hopefully we'll never have to worry about a scare like that!

    Yeah I never really liked the Ol'Roy brand...thought it was a littlw weird. But my mom said that Sandy has had them for ages with no problems. I do hope that she's okay too as she is our family dog, and the first dog I ever owned (she's 12 now and we got her when I was in fourth grade!)...it would just be awful for anything to happen, she's getting on in age as it is!

    Re: update on recall

    I just think this whole thing is terrible.

    I can't imagine how the people feel who have lost pets, not just had a terrible scare like we did.

    I guess we learned our lesson the hard way, although it could have been much worse...

    The guy in complete pet mart recommended the Ol Roys to us, and I thought, "Oh, what the heck?" But, the results were icky, LOL! I gave them to the humane society where I volunteer sometimes. I usually also try to donate the last fourth of a bag of Fromm's or EVO to them.

    Wow...I just thought of something...our shelter feeds Purina canned and dry...

    Yeah really...my heart just goes out to all those poor people and those poor animals that had to suffer.

    I do think we're so lucky to have not been feeding those foods, or I guess only having a minor scare compared to others!

    Shelters were a big concern I guess because they don't usually have much of a choice of what they feed, so I'm sure a lot of shelter dogs have died!

    Purina is okay though. Well it's crap food, but not recalled at all. Other than the premium brands, Purina and Pedigree have not been involved at all.

    Re: update on recall

    Yeah, I was really sweating bullets.

    I doubt there will be any compensation from any of the big brands. They'll say it was Menu foods' fault, and Menu foods is set up like an offshore company, so they'll probably have limited liability.

    I think someone should be responsible. I think that all of these big name brands should have some responsiblity for allowing contaminated food into the market.

    Well, at least that's a relief. I'm not sure what canned food they specifically use, I just know that they feed Purina.

    I agree. I mean I have no idea who the blame will fall on really, but it's just so awful!

    I hadn't even realized how many animals had died so far, it's WAY more than I ever thought.

    Yeah my shelter also feeds Purina. We are so lucky that Purina wasn't part of it!

    ►Petconnection.com (as of 04/03/07; 5:12 a.m. PDT):3,057 deaths (1,657 cats; 1,400 dogs)
    Crazy.

    And most people don't kn ow any better then to buy these foods in the first place. Purina, Eukenuba, etc. have such wholesome advertising.

    They make it seem that if you don't feed their foods that you're harming your dog.

    *sigh of relief*

    Those dogs go through enough, ya know? Scared and alone in a shleter with no "mom" or "dad" to comfort them...

    I agree! I mean honestly before I came on this forum I thought Purina Beneful was really good food. I fed it to Bridgette and the cats and was darn proud of having such good food! Sick!

    Why do they have to market it the way they do? Pedigree is a big problem one too! They have such sweet commercials, AND they promote the fact that they donate money to homeless animals so it really would appeal to anyone who didn't know better.

    I was thinking I'd buy Pedigree to donate that 10% or whatever it is, and then donate the food to a shelter...

    To kinda get this thread back on its origional track here is another recall...
    Not related to Menu foods but still worth checking out.
    http://www.thebostonchannel.com/asse...76/detail.html

    WASHINGTON -- There is yet another pet food recall.

    Eight in One is recalling packages of its Dingo brand dog, cat and ferret treats because of concerns over salmonella. The company says the bacteria could infect both animals and people handling the food.

    The announcement is not related to the recalls of tainted food that has led to kidney failure in pets around the country.

    The recall involves Dingo Chick'n Jerky, Dingo Kitty Chicken Jerky and Dingo Ferret Chicken Jerky.

    The company asks consumers to throw away unused portions of the jerky treats. To obtain a refund, call 888-232-9889.

    Ol' Roy treats HAVE been recalled. They contain Wheat Gluten from the same source as Menu Foods.

    I know, I saw them on there. We're pretty sure the ones that she was reading were not actually recalled, but they are taking her to the vet to be sure she's okay. Thanks for the concern!

    So is it the Wheat Gluten or Salmonella..I am confused. All I know if this was in the Human food chain heads around the world would be rolling.

    Re: Pet Food Recall Updates Thread

    there were two different issues: one was the wheat gluten thru menu foods and the other was salmonella in some treats (Ol Roy's and I think Dingo brand).
