Sad to see it happen as she bought the stuff as a "treat" for the cat and doesn't normally buy it. Her older cat sniffed it and walked away.
Oh wow, that sucks. :(

My mom has 3 cats, and she was flipping out about this last night. Luckily the stuff she feeds their cats wasn't on their list.

I sometimes give my Maggie some wet food as a treat, but luckily I haven't since January.

THAT will disturb you. Read at your own risk.

When we adopted our dog, they gave us a free bag of IAMS. I refuse to use it.
Iams is one of the worst offenders of hurting animals, them with their parent company Proctor and Gamble.

Iams does not give a crap about animals

Sorry, animals rights rant over...

bill, I heard on the news last night, they did mention something about royal canine. You might want to check again. This seems like something that is going to be going on for a while.

I believe the affected Menu Foods plant is located in Emporia, Kansas.

First beef, then Conagra/Peter pan, and now pet food. What is up with all the contaminated food lately?

Actually it was a royal canine cat food made in a canadian plant. Figure that a cat food made by royal CANINE.

I actually looked it up and found it on KATU news website.
