Pet Food Recall

Several people wrote in to tell me about a Pet Food recall over the weekend. Here's the link off the Channelnews Asia website that E_cat sent in. Thanks to everyone who sent this in.

You can check the Menu Food website to see which batches were affected. Most of the food isn't available in Singapore.

Actually there is, and it worries me 'cause my cat Teh Cee is now feeding on Nutro Natural Choice's Salmon flavour.

But I think they recall most dry food just for precautionary measure, I hope.

If you look at CNN's URL below, which has a link to the main manufacturer, Menu Foods.

I am just wondering and worrying, where did our Nutro come from...

I already switch her dry food to Science Diet liao...

Cheers

I feed my cats Nutro dry. Technically it's not on the affected list but I am rather nervous now. I intend to drop by my pet food supplier and see what they know.

I saw Pets Megamart promoting Iams and Eukanuba yesterday but I bought Iams last year. The 15 Kg one and the Iams light b4 CNY. Hopefully they are ok.

After this, I will switch to natural balance. Seems to receive good feedback.

The catfood recall in USA are canned catfood or in pouches, not dry catfood.
Yahoo news mentioned the petfood recall in USA are "cuts and gravy" style food, which consists of chunks of meat in gravy, sold in cans and small foil pouches from Dec. 3 to March 6.
Therefore if you feeding Nutro, Eukanuba and Iams dry catfood, it is safe.
Singapore's Proctor & Gamble stated that Iams and Eukanuba catfood, does not come from USA ... P&G says "none of the affected Eukanuba or Iams products were exported to Asia".
Therefore worry not pet owners -- the dogfood and catfood listed in the USA recall list, is safe.

most american brands do not export directly to other far-away countries such as ours. the local iams dry are made mostly by their factories in asia.

most locally sold wet canned food are made in thailand. best to check with local suppliers on the safety of the local stocks.
