"....The Veterinary Information Network, used by about 16,000 of the estimated 35,000 U.S. veterinarians, noticed the five foods kept recurring in vet-described disease reports, said Paul Pion, the Davis vet who co-founded the service. Pion said it would be premature to name the foods....He hopes to get suspect food samples to the California Animal Health and Food Safety Laboratory at UC Davis to start testing as early as today. As the recall expands, "my sense is it's time for every manufacturer to go testing for melamine,"

...just an exerpt...the article is chock-full, so read carefully!

well i do know both science diet[hills] and Nutro have released statements that their foods tested negative.

I also know procter and gamble and Nestle purina said they don't use RPC so i am trying to figure out who is left for manufacturers???:frustrated: :2cents:

I registered....I don't know why they bother insisting on your name and address and phonenumber, I never give the real stuff out anyway.
Regardless, I wish they had named the foods in question there.
