    While watching CNN today, I caught the tail end of a story about recalled pet food from a major manufacture. They explained dog and cat food was being recalled because it was tainted with something that could potentially KILL your pet who might eat the tainted food.

    A quick search brought this article to my attention (even though I live in TX)
    http://www.mercurynews.com/businessheadlines/ci_5469862

    which then led me to this site:
    http://www.menufoods.com/recall/

    which lists foods from MAJOR grocery store brands like Iams, Eukanuba, Nutro Max, Mighty Dog and MANY more, about 50 in all.

    I personally don't feed Stogie these foods, but I'm sure MILLIONS of people do, so PLEASE READ THIS and pass the information on to your friends and family members who might feed these brands.

    I'm surprised this hasn't been discussed more here (unless I'm missing another thread). This is huge news and is being reported everywhere. It was the lead story on my local news last night.

    The last I heard, Menu Foods is:

    A) Unsure of the reason for the sicknesses and deaths in their customers' pets. They believe it was a new source of gluten, but it hasn't been confirmed.

    and

    B) Resuming production and sales of the affected brands anyway.

    I have absolutely no words for the vileness of that.
