Possible Corn Gluten Alert

For the full details, go to:
http://www.itchmo.com/read/melamine-...esses_20070419

This has been a difficult decision as corn gluten contamination has not hit North America. But based on patterns of development and expansion of recall in the US, Itchmo is issuing a warning to pet parents out of abundance of caution.

We stress that NO US OR CANADIAN CONNECTION HAS BEEN REPORTED.

BREAKING NEWS: Melamine in Corn Gluten Linked to South African Pet Illnesses
April 19th, 2007

The 29 cases of renal failure in South Africa has been linked to melamine in corn gluten used in pet food. Corn gluten is used extensively in the US.

Tests have confirmed that Vets Choice and Royal Canin dog and cat dry pet-food products contained corn gluten contaminated with melamine, says the manufacturer.

The contaminated corn gluten was delivered to Royal Canin by a South African third-party supplier and appears to have originated from China.

We were tracking cases of the South African pet deaths before and have heard rumors of corn gluten contamination.

At this point, we believe that all corn gluten should be considered at risk for contamination and should be tested by every pet food manufacturer and the FDA.
