We’re cynically paraphrasing a security analyst, of course. The Financial Post of Canada reports that Menu Foods may not see huge litigation costs:
“…litigation will likely be limited given word from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that â€œrisk is limited to reimbursing the impacted pet owners for the cost of replacementâ€ and Menu Foodâ€™s offer to cover related veterinary costs.”
When did the FDA start giving out legal advice? And why do we, the consumer, feel like the last people to hear anything from the FDA?
They also note that no one is testing for aminopterin:
However, he noted that not only does Menu Foods not test for the specific toxin found in pet food samples, but other North American pet food manufacturers may not either.
All pet food makers should take this opportunity to start publicly announcing their testing procedures.
