Major recall of pet food has animal owners frantic

UNION, NJ-- A major recall of pet food has animal owners worried and scrambling to find substitutes.  The recall involves dozens of brands made by Menu Foods.

The company says an undetermined number of cats and dogs have suffered kidney failure after eating the food and about ten have died.

The pet food is widely sold throughout North America under 48 different dog-food brands and 40 cat-food labels, including Iams, Nutro and Eukanuba.

The products are distributed by major retailers like Wal-Mart, Kroger and Safeway.

Two other pet food companies, Nestle Purina and Hill's Pet Nutrition are voluntarily recalling some of their products that are made by menu foods.

The Food and Drug Administration doesn't know yet what's wrong with the food.  But Menu Foods says the recalled products were made with wheat gluten from a new supplier.  That supplier has been replaced.
