As the investigation continues into the recall of over 60 million cans and pouches of Menu Foods dog and cat food, answers to the cause of the contamination are beginning to surface. The latest news released is that the pet food may have been contaminated with rat poison, though there is no current information on how the rat poison would have gotten into the pet food.
Lawsuits are currently being filed against Menu Foods, the manufacturer of the contaminated pet food. The first lawsuit in Illinois was filed at the beginning of this week. If you believe your pet has fallen ill or died as a result of ingesting the contaminated pet food, contact an attorney immediately. If you still have the pet food in your possession do not throw it away until you determine if you would like to take legal action against the manufacturer.
