An update to a previous blog posting on the Menu Foods cat and dog food recall -- the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets announced today that scientists at the New York State Food Laboratory have identified Aminopterin as a toxin present in cat food samples from Menu Foods.  Aminopterin, a derivative of folic acid, is used as rat poison in some countries, and can cause cancer and birth defects in humans and can cause kidney damage in dogs and cats.
