Make sure you say that it was canned food that was recalled, not the dry kibble....

Today they added 37 more brands and the anchor on ABC at noon added the word "chow" from the report he was reading.

I found info that says Purina voluntarily withdrew canned and pouches of Mighty Dog but not any other of their food. Other Purina products appear to be safe for now.

I can't find anything on any news or the FDA site that says 37 more brands were added.

I decided to make my dogs' food. I give them Solid gold dry and just a little canned but I'm going to make their food and treats.

Good Decision, Joan. I'm doing the same. I spent some time on Dogster.com and found this valuable info. There were 17 pages of posts on this thread. Here are just 2 of them:

Yes, it is. I'm sorry to hear about your dog. We've lost three cats to kidney failure (2 of the 4 we lost between July 2005 & January 2006 were to kidney failure), so unfortunately I know more about that horrible disease in pets than I ever wanted to. With all three, though, we had to make the decision to euthanize them. We just couldn't watch them suffer knowing there was nothing more we could do.

We feed our cats Solid Gold dry cat food, and I think since it's a natural holistic food it should be safe.

I found this on the LA Times website:

"The FDA said the investigation was focused on problems with wheat gluten, which the manufacturer said had been coming from a new supplier."

Solid Gold does not use wheat in their pet food products.
