I'm with you Coal-s-mom. we feed our two Nutro ultra dry, but if they put bad stuff in the wet, I don't know why they wouldn't put it in the dry, too.

Also they have been TESTING the food on dogs and cats and I saw on the news tonight that 6 of the test animals have died. I really don't want to give any of my money to a company that would do THAT!

It also only affected foods produced during a certain time period. December-March I believe. I think it depended on the specific type as well.

Read as many as 250 dogs & cats have died one lady is sueing for 50 million because they did not re-call the foods quick enough that was on the news.I really feel sorry for the way the animals died not an easy way to go then I can imagine how their people felt feeding their animals food that killed them.Hopefully they will start making better foods???

They don't know yet, Sorthund. Right now, they are focusing on the wheat gluten as the possible contaminant but ONLY because the supplier is the same in all the brands recalled.

I suspect they will find some mold toxin somewhere that's causing the illness and death, but the bottom line is at this point they haven't figured it out.

Certain substances have been ruled out, but the exact cause is still unknown. It’s suspected that the offending agent may be associated with some type of nephrotoxin in a particular batch of gluten (used in manufacturing the gravy portion of the food), but it’s possible that the inciting agent will remain unidentified.

Here is an e-mail that Purina is sending out:

An Update from Nestle Purina PetCare Company About the Menu
Foods Recall - March 23, 2007

We at Nestle Purina PetCare Company know the reports of pet food
recalls and withdrawals over the past week have been very
concerning and at times confusing for pet owners, who want to
ensure the safety of the food they are feeding their beloved pets.

We want to take this opportunity to reassure you that Mighty Dog
pouch products are the ONLY Purina(r) brand products affected by
Menu Foods' recall. Nestle Purina stands behind the high-quality
of our pet foods, and all Purina brand cat food products and all
other Purina brand dog food products, including Mighty Dog
canned products, can continue to be fed to your pets with
complete confidence.

On Friday, March 16, Nestle Purina PetCare issued its press
release announcing the voluntary withdrawal of our Mighty Dog(r)
brand pouch-packaged products that were produced by Menu Foods
from Dec. 3, 2006, through March 14, 2007. While we had no
indication of any product quality or safety issues specifically
related to our Mighty Dog pouch products at that time, we are
proactively withdrawing these products as a precautionary
measure, because the well-being of pets and the safety and
efficacy of our products are our top priorities.

We also want to apologize for any difficulty you may have had in
reaching us by phone this week. While we have dedicated numerous
additional phone lines, people and other resources exclusively
