Rat poison found in recalled pet food
Rat poison has been found in some of the contaminated
pet food that has killed scores of animals according to ABC
A source close to the investigation tells ABC News that the rodenticide
(aminopterin), which the source says is illegal to use in the United States, was
on wheat that was imported from China and used by Menu Foods in nearly 100
brands of dog and cat food.
A news conference is scheduled for this
afternoon by experts in Albany, N.Y., where scientists at the state's food
laboratory made the discovery a week after a massive recall of 60 million cans
and pouches was issued.
What investigators can't say so far is whether
this is the only contaminant, if it is in all of the recalled food, or if it's
in enough quantity in to sicken more animals.
