Default 5/11/07 Sensible Choice/Kasco dry cat/dog RECALL

Sigh.......how many more? Cereal Byproducts ships small amounts everywhere.
The pitiful thing is that the FDA had this info a while ago.
http://tinyurl.com/2jhfof
[..]
This announcement is based on the company's ongoing extensive review of
its manufacturing and quality assurance testing procedures, which
identified trace amounts of a melamine derivative from tainted Chinese rice
protein concentrate provided to the company by domestic ingredient supplier
Cereal Byproducts, headquartered in Illinois.
[..]
"While a very limited number of
Sensible Choice and Kasco products in this recall tested positive for trace
levels of a melamine derivative, Royal Canin USA is voluntarily withdrawing
these products out of an abundance of caution and because we are fully
committed to the welfare of our customers' pets."
[..]

The mushing community has been largely unaffected by this
mess because pretty much nobody feeds wet foods and the dry
foods tend to come from small specialty producers. However,
a lot of people feed Kasco Hi Energy, so this should get
people to sit up and take notice.

I've been planning on switching to Annamaet in the fall and
I'm writing to them to find out if they've tested for
melamine. Here, BTW, is what Eagle Pack has to say:

.........not a bad letter, however I wish this part were true: *while the
recalled pet food has found confinement,*

.........and I'd like to know WHY they think MenuFoods won't tinker with
their canned food? Are they saying that all the companies who had stuff
recalled that Menu made HAD agreed to substitutions? Or that MenuFoods
nutritionist formulated their foods?

.......I do like the fact that they mentioned some things have to come from
China. It's a fact. One no one likes at this point, but still, why pretend
otherwise?
