- Four months is considered quick???
The public was NOT informed immediately - Menu Foods suspected the contamination back in December and the public was not notified until March 16 - THREE months after the food had hit the shelves. To date, according to the press release from the FDA, the contaminated wheat containing MELANINE supposedly bought in by ChemNutra, it was announced on April 3rd that of the prior day, four pet food companies and one distributor were on that day - APRIL 3, informed of the recall. According to this release, then, there are still products yet not announced to the public that they may very well still be feeding their pets contaminated food.
And by the wording of this paragraph, ChemNutra appears to be unaware of WHO it went to:
Yesterday ChemNutra sent recall notices to all four of its direct customers. If any other company received bags of recalled wheat gluten from the lot numbers referenced above, please call ChemNutra at 702.818.5019.
