This is the most sweeping safety recommendation on the pet food recalls issued by the ASPCA.

ASPCA Says: Avoid All Non-US Protein Supplements. "Crisis Not Over"
May 3rd, 2007

This is the headline of their press release today: "As Pet Food Recall Expands, ASPCA Warns Crisis Not Over: More Cases May Be Seen."

Many of you have already called manufacturers, and a recommendation from the ASPCA the same.

"We are strongly recommending that pet parents immediately investigate, via their pet food manufacturer's Web site or by calling them directly, where the ingredients-specifically protein supplements-are sourced from."

Given the current situation and until this crisis is resolved, the ASPCA is recommending pets be fed products containing U. S.-sourced protein supplements only.

They also recommend that your pet sees a vet if any recalled food was consumed, not wait until they show symptoms. And extend fluid treatments if the pet is found sick.
