As of 9:23pm pst:<br><br>
Canine Caviar and Mulligan Stew Pet Food are recallling products. It appears that both companies claim that American Nutrition was adding rice protein to their products without their knowledge:<br><br><a href="http://caninecaviar.com/" target="_blank">http://caninecaviar.com/</a><br><br><a href="http://www.mulliganstewpetfood.com/" target="_blank">http://www.mulliganstewpetfood.com/</a><br><br>
Since it's so late, the FDA site has not yet been updated with this info.<br>

Unbelievable, but there's more!:<br><br>
This appears to be a comprehensive list of yesterday's additions to the recall:<br><br><a href="http://www.fda.gov/oc/po/firmrecalls/americannutrition04_07.html" target="_blank">http://www.fda.gov/oc/po/firmrecalls...tion04_07.html</a><br><br>
This is very interesting information from Blue Buffalo claiming that American Nutrition was adding rice protein to the Blue Buffalo products with out their knowledge:<br><br><a href="http://www.fda.gov/oc/po/firmrecalls/bluebuffalo204_07.html" target="_blank">http://www.fda.gov/oc/po/firmrecalls...alo204_07.html</a>

Thanks for the information. I have some Blue Buffalo canned cat food sitting here that I have not used for a while. I used it to transition my cats to raw, but I couldn't keep up with it (too many cats to keep track of right now, but I am sure I'll try it again at a later time), so my herd of cats are on Innova Evo for now. Time to take those cans of BB back to the store for a refund.

This whole recall thing just has my head spinning. WTH is in <i>our</i> food that we don't know about? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grossedout.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="gross">

I heard on some public radio news show that this same region of China where the melamine was added is still reeling from an episode of formula contamination by a different company. Apparently they were putting questionable stuff in baby formula, resulting in 2 infants dying. (Not the same company though!) Roughly paraphrased, the reporter said that up to 3/4 of the items on the shelves of stores in the region were contaminated! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grossedout.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="gross">
