A pretty good percentage, I'd say easily 95% of canned cat food in the US is made AT a MENU foods facility. The only WET foods that were recalled were Menu-made, "cuts and gravy" types with wheat gluten in them.
Apparently canning your own food just isn't cost effective when you can have MENU do it for you. There are a few exceptions....there's a thread here with the short list of non-menu manufactured canned cat foods. Just because canned Wellness is made at a Menu plant does not mean that Wellness is bad food, although many are avoiding any menu made foods...and I understand their concern.
MOST DRY food is made by the individual companies, in their own facilities, Wellness included. Dry food is a totally different story, when it comes to manufacturing.
Personally, I do understand the concern about MENU made canned food...although I just can't find enough good things about dry food to consider going back to feeding it, after I struggled to get away from it.
Just my opinion...hope it might help.
Personally, I'm just trying to stay very aware of what the facts are, and I'm avoiding wheat gluten...as that is *supposed* to be the contaminated ingredient. Do we know for sure? Not really.
