A full two months after its first test animal died from eating melamine tainted pet food, Menu Foods expands its recall yet again. Back on March 16, Menu Foods President and CEO Paul K. Henderson wrote:
“We take these complaints very seriously and, while we are still looking for a specific cause, we are acting to err on the side of caution. We will do whatever is necessary to ensure that our products maintain the very highest quality standards.”
On March 30:
“Our products are safe. We continue to engage in the highest levels of monitoring and testing in the pet food industry.”
Menu Foods has expanded its recall five times since making that statement. And you wonder why I no longer accept reassurances from industry and regulators as to the safety of our food supply?
