THIS IS AN UPDATE TO PUBLIC HEALTH ALERT, "PET FOOD RECALL" #100461-3-19-07-PHAL

This updates a notice distributed earlier on March 19, 2007 announcing that Menu Foods, Inc. has recalled "cuts and gravy" style pet food in cans and pouches sold under 88 brand names. (See attached addendum.)

Since that notice, three more pet food recalls have been posted on the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), web site, http://www.fda.gov/opacom/7alerts.html:
1. Nestlé Purina PetCare Company Press Release
2. Hill's Pet Nutrition, Inc. Press Release
3. P&G Pet Care (makers of IAMS and Eukanuba brands) Press Release

Additional information is available from the Menu Foods, Inc. web site at www.menufoods.com/recall. The company also designated phone numbers that pet owners can call for information - (800) 551-1392 or (866) 895-2708.

Consumers who have any of these products should immediately stop feeding them to their pets. Dogs or cats that have consumed the suspect feed and show signs of kidney failure (such as loss of appetite, lethargy, and vomiting) should consult with their veterinarian.
