Pet Food Recall FAQ
On a related note, news is now surfacing that this toxic food situation was known about for at least a month before the information became public. The FDA received the first reports of kidney failure and deaths as early as February 20th, 2007. Menu Foods, the company responsible for initiating the recall, started testing the food on laboratory animals on February 27, 2007. This has infuriated many pet owners and those in the animal care industry who wonder what took so long to tell the public and why did additional animals have to die needlessly to "prove" the food was toxic?
