Hi Everyone:

I was just listening to the news at noon (today - June 6th), and heard that the Food and Drug Administration is investigating a Texas Laboratories finding of ACETAMINOPHEN in dog and cat food!!! Acetaminophen is generic for Tylenol.

The following link is the only thing I have found thus far regarding this:

The FDA will not release the brand names of dog and cat food that have been contaminated.

I don't know what else to say other than this is more than horrible and it's extremely terrifying...... What foods are safe for our precious furbabies to eat??? It keeps getting worse rather than better.

Peace & Love to you all,

Denise

Here's some further information from the ASPCA on the acetaminophen contamination.

http://www.aspca.org/site/PageServer?pagename=press_060607_3

Here's the first paragraph:
QUOTE
With reports that acetaminophen has been found in brands of cat and dog food not included on the Menu Foods recall list, the ASPCA« (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals«) today reminded pet parents that vigilance is the key to keeping their pets safe and healthyŚcoupled with a strong dose of common sense.


It really WOULD BE NICE if they would divulge the brand and/or brands of cat food that have been contaminated! I wonder what the hold up is???

Take care everyone!

Denise

Here's an interview with William Hubbard, former senior associate commissioner for policy, planning and legislation at the FDA, now working with the nonprofit, nonpartisan Coalition for a Stronger FDA. So much for trusting the FDA.

This is what happens when there is too much laissez faire. Our governements should
have more testing facilities with independent scientists to spot check pet and human foods, especially cheap ones!
