Pet food scare

The week's news at a glance.

Pet owners nationwide were alarmed last week after a Canadian manufacturer recalled 60 million cans of cat and dog food, following the deaths of at least 14 pets from kidney failure. Menu Foods recalled all “cuts and gravy”–style food manufactured from Dec. 3 through March 6. The recall covered dozens of popular brands, including Iams, Eukanuba, and Nutro. “She won’t be eating that stuff anymore,” said Ron Finegold of Boynton Beach, Fla., whose 3-year-old cat took ill after eating Iams food. Food and Drug Administration officials say tainted wheat gluten used in the food may have caused the animals’ kidney problems.
