FDA Testing Finds Chemical in Recalled Pet Food
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced today that testing of Menu Foods pet food had revealed the presence of a chemical used in the production of plastics. The chemical, called "melamine", was also found in testing of wheat gluten that was used as an ingredient in the affected pet food products. Last week, scientists at the New York State Food Laboratory announced that they found aminopterin (used as rat poison) in cat food samples, but FDA testing has failed to confirm these findings.
