Writer Looking For Menu Foods Victims

A journalist named Barry Lynn is looking for people who were affected by the Menu Food pet food recalls to document in his next book.

He is looking for people whose cat or dog, under the age of 10, died from eating wet cat or dog food from Menu Foods. He would prefer that the food was purchased from a Wal-Mart store.

Ideally, Barry would also prefer that the person live somewhere in the middle of the United States, especially near Kansas City or Dallas. This is not a must though.

These experiences are for a book on the link between industrial security and industrial organization.

    So if you’re a kittie or woofer who got sick off of expensive, ‘high end’ food from PetSmart, Petco, or a vet’s office, Barry ain’t interested, eh?

    Let me guess, he’s being paid by the PFI to blame WalMart, right?

    Or is that too complicated a plot for Menu Foods and their cohort?

    I wonder if he is interested in WalMart as there are tales of them pressuring MF to get cheaper–so that is why they went to ChemNutra—I read that recently—will try to get link…

    I definitely think this writer has an agenda that includes Wal-Mart bashing. Stories of people who were affected by the pet food recall would be fine, but there should not be any focus on Wal-Mart since 1000’s of stores across the U.S. sold food that was contaminated. Many brands, many stores, all areas of the country. Wal-Mart did not cause the recall and neither did any other retail outlet who merely sold the food. They did not make it and had no reason to suspect any contamination. Who ever heard of melamine and cyanuric acid in relation to pet food before March 2007? Who was really responsible? Pure and simple - China. Everyone else was blindsided and, although they may have made mistakes after the fact, they did not intentionally make and sell food that would be harmful. That would have been economic suicide. As it was, it was an economic diaster for many companies involved, but certainly not one that they intended to happen.
    I’m not writing this to specifically defend Wal-Mart, but rather, to point out that NO retail outlet should be singled out in regard to the pet food recall as IMHO they were all as much victims as the consumers who purchased the food from them.
