Proctor & Gamble announced Friday the recall of specific 3 oz., 5.5 oz., 6 oz. and 13.2 oz. canned and 3 oz. and 5.3 oz. foil pouch cat and dog wet food products made by Menu Foods but sold under the Iams and Eukanuba brands. The recalled products bear the code dates of 6339 through 7073 followed by the plant code 4197, P&G said. I believe most of these are canned and pouched cat foods. You can go to the website and click on brand name and then it will tell you what package it comes in. I had the pouch Nutra Max because I bought one for the cats to try. Belle ate it but it was only one package so hopefully she will be ok. Here is the link to click on the brand name to see particularly what was recalled. http://www.menufoods.com/recall/product_cat.html Americas Choice; Preferred Pets; Authority; Best Choice; Companion; Compliments; Demoulas Market Basket; Fine Feline Cat, Shep Dog; Food Lion; Foodtown; Giant Companion; Good n Meaty; Hannaford; Hill Country Fare; Hy-Vee; Key Food; Laura Lynn; Li'l Red; Loving Meals; Main Choice; Nutriplan; Nutro Max Gourmet Classics; Nutro Natural Choice; Paws; Presidents Choice; Price Chopper; Priority; Save-A-Lot; Schnucks; Sophistacat; Special Kitty; Springfield Pride; Sprout; Total Pet; My True Friend; Wegmans; Western Family; White Rose; and Winn Dixie.

    Thanks for posting the recall information Mia. We don\'t eat any of those foods, but there are a lot of kitties out there that do! It\'s important to keep this bumped up ;)

    Mommy got this list through a friend: Sophisticat and Sophisticat Supreme Grreat Choice Iams Eukanuba Nutro Authority Award Science Diet Mighty Dog pouches Mixables All these are the wet or canned variety. The recall does not include dry, or prescription foods. You can also print out a list, with UPC codes at www,petsmart.com (isn\'t it ironic that we all lobby for everyone to feed a premium food, instead of a grocery store brand, and now it\'s the \"good\" foods that are having the problem?) We send prayers to all the kitties and doggies who may be sick, to make a full recovery. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, Hannah & The Texas Wild Bunch

    We eat dry food and Little Red is on perscription Hills...but we DO have a snack one in a blue moon of (store brand) Hill Country Fair chunk/gravy pouches poured on our dry food like gravy =( This is one of the recall lots! Thankfully we rarely get it and we are feeling fine. And the pouches we had left are going back to the store! THANK YOU CATSTER and kitties for telling us!!! *headbonks* ~Jet Giotto~

    We get IAMS Select Bites as a treat once in a great while. The last time we got some, my sister refused to eat any and I vomited violently for an hour right after eating it. We haven't gotten any more since then as it really worried my mom. Now we see there is a recall, but the date code on the box we have (6141) isn't within the range given by P&G. We wonder if the problem started earlier than they know about? Should we be contacting someone about this?

    Hannah said, \"isn\'t it ironic that we all lobby for everyone to feed a premium food, instead of a grocery store brand, and now it\'s the \'good\' foods that are having the problem?\" This bothers our cat mother because so many name brands as well as store brands are made by the same people. So now food must be checked for nutrition, manufacturer, location, factory and code number? Holy Katz. What have we been eating? aak. Of course the same is true for human food....one conglomerate puts out the same thing under different names. Be careful out there.

    It's just wet food? Not dry?

    Yeah, only wet food, Friskie! That's true, Jacques! It's kind of like how fresh veggies are supposed to be so good for our humans, and then they just had the big recall on spinach because some careless producer allowed their stuff to become contaminated with harmful bacteria. :( You just never know! Hopefully in the long run, things like this will force them to be cleaner and more careful.

    There is a story here: http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-petfoods20mar20,0,6543583.story?coll=la-home-nation that the purported 10 deaths were actually caused by menufood when they "tested" their toxic food on animals after complaints started coming in. Here we have it: poisonous food PLUS lethal animal testing rolled in one.

    A woman in my hometown, Knoxville, Tenn., is filing a $25 million lawsuit against Menu Foods Inc. after her cat suffered kidney damage after eating Special Kitty food. The judge could decide to make it a class-action suit. The story will be posted at www.knoxnews.com after midnight tonight.
