Pet Food Recall Expands To DelMonte Dry Food

Del Monte issued a voluntary recall for several kinds of dry pet food, expanding the scope of the contaminated pet food recall crisis. Recalled brands included Jerky Treats, Pounce Meaty Morsels, Gravy Train Beef Sticks, and certain dog snack and wet dog food products.

Once again, the culprit appears to be wheat gluten imported from overseas. Pet owners are advised to read the label carefully and, as a precaution, avoid any product made with wheat gluten, and especially those with gravy sauce.

As an alternative, consider making meals for your pets (see books like Real Food for Cats, or Real Food For Dogs), or letting them outside to catch and devour the flesh of small animals. — BEN POPKEN
