Pet Food Recall Update 3/30/07

The pet food recall that killed hundreds of animals is expanding.

Hills Pet Nutrition is pulling it's Prescription Diet Feline Food off store shelves. Hill's says the recall is a precaution. They say it contains an ingredient provided by the same company that also supplied it to Menu Foods, where the deadly recall originated.

The recalled products are as follows:
Prescription Died m/d Feline dry food, all lot numbers, 4 lb. bag and 10 lb. bag.

Meanwhile, the FDA raised more questions than answers today regarding the recall.

They're still not sure what is killing the animals. The FDA is now saying a chemical used to make plastic may be the culprit.

More than 100 brands of wet pet food were recalled earlier this month after dozens of animals died from kidney failure. Some animal rights activists say the recall does not go far enough and are asking government officials to extend the recall to dry varieties of the food as well.
