Popular dog, cat food recalled after kidney failure, deaths - CNN.com

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A major manufacturer of dog and cat food sold under Wal-Mart, Safeway, Kroger and other store brands recalled 60 million containers of wet pet food Friday after reports of kidney failure and deaths.

An unknown number of cats and dogs suffered kidney failure and about 10 died after eating the affected pet food, Menu Foods said in announcing the North American recall. Product testing has not revealed a link explaining the reported cases of illness and death, the company said.

See article for brands affected. It's not just "store brands" -- Nutro is in there.

Latest update: the food contained wheat from China that was sprayed with rat poison, specifically aminopterin.
