UPDATE ON RECALLED PET FOODS:
Since Molly last wrote on this subject there have been further developments in the pet food recall case. The first is that some other companies not on the Menu Foods list have begun to voluntarily withdraw some of their products. These include Purina products such as Alpo Prime Cuts and the Del Monte line of pet treats and foods including Jerky Treats, Gravy Train Beef Sticks, Pounce Meaty Morsels, Dollar General and Happy Tails. Stay tuned to the above corporate websites for any future recalls. Another useful site is the Oregon Veterinary Medical Association page that has a continuing update on recalled foods.
Also, the last time Molly visited the Pet Connection site (about 6:00 pm on April 1) they had 2,800 reports of suspicious deaths reported to them. The Oregon VMA had a listing of 32 deaths in that state reported by Oregon veterinarians.
