Cornell profs investigate pet food

Veterinary scientists from Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., are leading the search for the ingredient believed responsible for the deaths of cats and dogs in Canada and the United States.

The company has given scientists test-food and tissue samples from animals that have died.

Menu Foods recall affects 60 million tins of pet food and affects all of Menu Foods' "cuts and gravy" style dog and cat food produced at a facility in Emporia, Kan., between Dec. 3 and March 6 and sold at retailers throughout North America.
No one knows how many animals may have died as a result of ingesting the food.
