    fish food recalled

    http://www.itchmo.com/read/recall-hb...-pets_20070613

    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.

    I can't believe i'm just now reading this. Thanks for posting it.

    Hopefully you saved someone's pet by posting it!

    Please, if your dog is arthritic look into getting it Elk Velvet Antler. Look up my posts on it, PM me, or look it up on a search engine; but please if you love your dog and want it to live many more years consider this option. I've seen so many posts on here about dogs needlessly suffering. I can't make a new post about EVA every time so this plea is going here. EVA also helps with other ailments such as anemia.
