If you aren't aware of it, there is a major food recall for pets. Here is a complete list of cat and dog brands:

Yeah, very weird. No one seems to know what is making the pets sick, and several have died. Luckily we don't use any of the stuff on the lists!

They think it was from a new supplier of wheat gluten (a protein) that was used for a short time. It only affects canned/pouch wet foods, but quite a large variety. There's a lot better food brands out there anyways, but that's a different story.

Who can be sure? It could be coincidence. Not like I keep old cat food containers. My cat became ill in January with these symptons...the vet says his immune system was compromised somehow (???) and it kicked in the Feline leukemia.

I could kick myself actually. For months I noticed that a brand of cat food that I purchased at the local store would get eaten by my animals...but if I purchased the same thing at Walmart...the cats wouldn't touch it. Except for the one that got sick.

This cat was rescued from a 'crack' house, has been hit by a car, runs around on two broken legs, and seems to be surviving a major illness....he isn't named 'Lucky' for nothing.

I am so sorry about your poor cat Harlan, thats horrible

Our dog is spoiled, and gets fresh cooked meat and home baked biscuits for her din-dins, but its shaking to think that dedicated pet food could get in to circulation with such consequences. If it were human food, there would be a criminal investigation, not just a recall.

My dog only gets fed with home made 'dog food'.

Somedays it's liver, some days it's meat or mutton. 2 days of the week it HAS to be fish, so he gets nice fur.

Seriously, If I knew whoever put those products on the shelves on the stores, I'll personally go there and teach him Judo through the window.

I HATE animal abusers.

You guys are a little misled and overzealous. Do you actually think that people do this on purpose? The company said they will be losing $34-$40 million because of this. They wanted to do that?

The tainted spinach last year and bad tomatos(or whatever) at taco bell. Sh!t happens, people and animals get hurt. Protect yourself and those you love the best you can, that's all you can do.

There was a dog food recall about a year and a half ago because there was a batch of corn tainted with afla-toxins that killed a few dogs (don't remember the number). It happens, people do what they can to prevent it and work like hell to fix it when things do go wrong.


Harlan, I am sorry for your cat, I hope he recovers.

Thanks, Joel.

These things are bound to happen for a variety of reasons. Even naturally:

Hello Harlan:

We used one of the lots of the recalled food, one pet died before the full recall was instigated.
