Rat Poison in Recalled Pet Food

Comments Off

There are some reports now coming out that it was rat poisoning in the pet food that is being recalled nationally.

According to CBS

Rat poison has been found in pet food blamed for the deaths of at least 16 cats and dogs, a spokeswoman for the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets said Friday.

The toxin was identified as aminopterin, state Agriculture Commissioner Patrick Hooker said in a statement. Aminopterin is used to kill rats in some countries, but it’s not registered for that use in the United States, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

There has been at least on major lawsuit filed. We can help coordinate with any Virginia families who believe they have a claim against Menu Foods for their alleged delay in notifying pet owners and veterinarians about the recall.
