It is known as the largest pet food recall in history. Thousands of companion animals become sick or die (most from kidney failure).

Initially it was thought that,
aminopterin (a rat poison) was found in some cat food, but further tests could not verify it.  The FDA determined that wheat gluten and rice protein concentrate used in dog and cat food contained a chemical called melamine (a plastic chemical) which caused animals to fall ill.

Further investigation found an additional chemical, cyanuric acid, which, when combined with melamine, was determined to cause kidney failure in many American animal companions resulting in their illness or deaths .  In South Africa melamine was found in pet food containing corn gluten.

Kidney failure affects both dogs or cats.  Kidney failure can occur rapidly or be slow, over a long period of time. Symptoms are vomiting, lethargy and unwillingness to eat, increased water intake, increased volumes of urination, or  anorexia.  Kidney failure is serious and if an animal shows these symptoms they should  have immediate medical attention. 

  • Recalled food included dog and cat canned and pouched food, dry food and treats.
  • More than one ingredient "taints" a growing list of hundreds of products.
  • Recalled food fed to pigs and chickens.  Melamine and cyanuric acid found in pig urine.
  • Cross-contamination of food products caused additional recalls on pet food products.
  • Melamine found in other animal feed such as ferret and fish (tropical Koi and goldfish). .
  • Products for human consumption is under investigation - US shrimp found with melamine.
  • Importers allegedly bypass inspections.
  • Although unconfirmed, deaths are suspected at 8,500 with potential over 20,000.

The public is just learning (due to the recall) that melamine has always been added to food products (cheap fillers)   to increase (or give illusion to increase) the protein content of the product which increases the profit margin despite the lack of health benefits and potential health risks!   Furthermore, the public is become more aware of the many harmful contaminates that are in everyday products we take for granted (toxins in toothpaste, etc).

Although China is the main source of most of the current recall situations, recently it was learned that two US companies also put melamine in their food products. 

Public awareness and lawsuits is causing companies to think twice and look at their products for melamine fillers and recall them.  Companies already seeing a financial crush due to publicity.

Think safe for your pets - Use products that ARE ALL NATURAL
Avoid all fillers especially corn, wheat and rice
AVOID SUGARS
