There are a number of people affected by this. The advice is to watch your cats closely. Look for excessive urination, vomiting, drinking more than normal, diarrhea, lethargy.
Vets are being overwhelmed right now, so unless you see these symptoms occuring and you have fed the recalled food, I would just keep a close eye out. Anxious moments for me as well. I have 2 cases of food ready to go back and I am watching my crew carefully. So far, I only have one that causes concern, Sierra, she is constantly meowing not her style. But, we also have a new puppy.
Encourage fluids, invest in a pet fountain if you can. Just keep vigil and hope for the best.

P&G Pet Care Update on Menu Foods Recall
P&G Pet Care Update
March 22, 2007
We want to provide an update on the recent recall of â€œwetâ€ pet foods
produced by Menu Foods, Inc.
We are deeply saddened by this situation. We know it has caused a lot of
concern and has touched pet lovers throughout North America, including our own
employees. Weâ€™ve received a lot of questions, so we want to give you the
First, we want to assure you that this recall affects only a small portion
of our â€œwetâ€ pet food products manufactured at the Menu Foods plant in
Emporia, Kansas. We have a variety of canned wet food products that are currently
available on store shelves that are not affected in any way by this recall.
We also want to assure you that our Iams and Eukanuba dry foods are not
affected by the recall, and are readily available in stores. These foods are not
part of the recall â€“ there are no concerns at all about dry food. P&G
manufactures Iams and Eukanuba dry foods at our own plants, not at Menu Foods.
You may wonder why some â€œwetâ€ food was produced at Menu Foods. In fact,
virtually every pet food company commonly uses outside partners for special or
small volume items. Nonetheless, the different branded products made by Menu
are not â€œthe sameâ€. Our Iams and Eukanuba pet foods have unique recipes and
important ingredient differences that distinguish them from other pet food
Because of our concern for pets and their well-being, we took immediate
action to voluntarily participate in Menu Foodsâ€™ â€œwetâ€ food product recall and
to work with retailers to get the small portion of our â€œwetâ€ products
affected by the recall off all store shelves in the U.S. and Canada.
Until the root cause of this pet health issue is found, we will not produce
any more of these products at the Emporia plant. Weâ€™ll keep you updated when
we have more information.
Pets are an important part of all of our families. P&G Pet Care employees
share your concerns and are firmly committed to you and the health of your pet.
We are working hard to respond to your questions, and provide the
information and help you need. We value your trust and confidence during this extremely
