No apology necessary auntdot. We all know how typing replies often gets a different meaning than intended and I certainly didn't mean to ruffle your feathers either
The way reports are leaked out today and news not always accurate you're right.... a lot of talking goes on trying to piece things together. Like why didn't Walmart pull the products immediately after hearing about the recall, why did Iams want left off the list and a referral to their website issued, why this Canadian co. had to import wheat from China when Canada has a surplus of their own, why isn't EVERY case being reported (I know of six at two different vets myself)...... It's all a jumbled mess and I'm sure going to get more confusing before anything gets sorted out.
The upside is it is educating people that things aren't always as they seem when they see these commercials of bouncy puppies with images of vegetables and farm animals dazzling the TV screen. The pet food industry is a nasty one and one that needs a LOT more govt regulation. But then, pets should no longer be classified as "property" anymore either. They have taken on a much more important role in most people's lives. That Menu has agreed to pay their vet bills should be the least
that they do.
Oops, maybe I was on the verge of hysteria there
It's all good
