Menu Foods expanded its recall list Tuesday, adding a number of pet foods manufactured in its Canadian production facility – including 17 SKUs of 3-ounce Nutro Max Cat cans carried by PETCO.
All affected products offered at PETCO have been removed from store shelves and blocked from www.petco.com online orders.
Menu Foods said the move was triggered by news that some of the wheat gluten contaminated with melamine originally shipped to its Kansas plant was later transferred and used in the Canadian facility. This is the first time products manufactured in Canada were included in a recall since Menu Foods’ original recall announcement on March 16. The entire list of products added to the recall can be viewed at Menu Foods website.
The Nutro 3-ounce Max Cat cans are the only items in the most recently announced recall that are available at PETCO stores and online. Nutro says that the 5.5-ounce Max Cat Cans are not part of this recall and can remain on PETCO shelves and available online.
