Menu recalls more wet cat food items traced to contaminated wheat gluten.

On Tuesday, Canadian manufacturer Menu Foods Inc. recalled additional cat food produced by its Streetsville, Ontario, plant for both the U.S. and Canada markets.

Menu decided on the action after learning from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the agency leading the recall investigation, that its Canadian plant had received some of the Chinese supplied wheat gluten tainted with melamine from Las Vegas-importer ChemNutra.

Initiated March 16 by Menu Foods due to complaints of cats and dogs falling ill after consuming its wet-style products, the pet food recall has now embroiled nearly 100 brands of pet food made across the United States and Canada, including both dry and wet varieties.

A full listing of the new recalled products is below, and the most updated listing of all recalled products can be accessed on the FDA’s(http://www.fda.gov/ora/fed_state/recalls/Recall.xls) site.

It includes 5,511 entries.

Earlier this week, pet food company Royal Canin Canada recalled all of its Medi-Cal Feline Dissolution Formula prescription canned cat food, which was produced by Menu’s Ontario plant.

Later today, the Senate Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies will hear testimony on the FDA and others’ role in the pet food recall.
