On Menu Foods website, they added this statement on December 10 in regards to Expertox, a Texas lab, finding acetaminophen in various Menu Foods pet food samples. They said that UC Davis recently tested food samples and found no traces of acetaminophen.
Here is the statement on their website:
Earlier this year, an individual suggested that acetaminophen was present in certain products manufactured by Menu when a single private laboratory purported to find acetaminophen in products he had tested. Those suggestions and the results of that single laboratory were refuted at the time by tests conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The California Animal Health and Food Safety Laboratory at the University of California Davis (â€œUC Davisâ€) also found no traces of acetaminophen in the products at issue in tests commissioned by Menu.
The acetaminophen claims were re-cycled in October 2007 when that same private laboratory purported to find acetaminophen in another Menu-produced product that was part of the pet food recall in March 2007. Despite the previous findings and with the goal of alleviating any remaining public concern, Menu commissioned UC Davis to perform tests on the products that were the subject of the new claim. As with the prior tests conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and UC Davis, the most recent tests by UC Davis also found no traces of acetaminophen.
