Menu Foods has issued a voluntary recall for more than 60 million containers of wet dog food and moist cat food sold under top pet food brands such as Iams, Eukanuba, Hill’s Science Diet, Purina, and Nutro after approximately 10 cats and dogs died and many more suffered kidney failure.

The recall specifically applies to Menu Foods’ “Cuts and Gravy” style food, a moist pet food consisting of chunks of meat in gravy that is sold in cans as well as small foil pouches. These foods are sold at major retailers such as Wal-Mart (Ol’ Roy), Target, PetSmart, Kroger, Food Lion, Price Chopper, Publix, and Safeway.

Aminopterin is used to kill rats in some countries but is not registered for that use in the United States, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Here’s a link to the full story.
