Pet food recall

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.
