View Full Version : fish food recalled

They said in the beginning of all the recalls: melamine is used to bulk up the protein in dog, cat, fish, rodent, and livestock foods. I didn't think they'd bother recalling rodent or fish food simply because the animals have little value to us and we normally don't do necropsies to find out why Nemo died. I think many large scale aquariums have been seeing deaths due to the food though so they had to recall to avoid business lawsuits.

Wow I didn't even know that it went into fish food too. That is terrible, think of how many fish died and all the owners didn't know why:( I"m so glad my fish didn't get any of that food. Rest in Peace to all the fishies who passed because of this.

I presume any fish or small animal food made with wheat that comes from China is going to have the melamine. They don't have a bunch of different factories making their own wheat gluten, it all comes from the same place.
