A major pet foods manufacturer is recalling all of its dog and cat foods produced at a facility in Emporia in the past three months.

Canadian company Menu Foods said the recall of its ``cuts and gravy'' style foods was prompted by consumer complaints and tasting trials conducted by the manufacturer.

The company said an unknown number of cats and dogs suffered kidney failure and about ten died after eating the affected pet food. Product testing has not revealed a link explaining the reported cases of illness and death.

The products are packaged in cans and pouches under numerous brand names and are marketed nationwide by many pet food retailers including Kroger Company, Wal-Mart and PetSmart.

A list of potentially contaminated products can be found at http://www.menufoods.com/recall/

sorry to bother you in your own journal, but the thread was deleted - you said you recently found out the origins of cracker... what is it?

Cracker referrs not to the food item, but rather the action of cracking the whip. Specifically a slaver's/plantation forman's whip.

So yeah, no more jokingly calling myself a cracker. That's just not something I want to be putting out there. Sure, most people don't know what the roots are, but that doesn't make it an OK thing to say.
