Hi, all,

There are a number of posts on the blog and forum, starting early on, with references/links to FDA and other reports concerning product ingredients, manufacturers, supplements and related topics. Would anyone else like to see posts with this type of information under one heading? Menusux and others have contributed many hours digging up information that tends to get lost in the shuffle. That's not to say the posts should be moved from the original thread, rather a research threat where they can also be posted and viewed as a running log (by date). It seems to me that some of the information might have prompted professionals in various fields to start looking more closely into one area or other.  Surely that can only help matters.

Case in point, how many people even remember what the food tested positive for in the first place?

Sounds like a great idea....

However, in reference to your question about what food was recalled in the first place, thepetfoodlist has a great list of manufacturers that have had food recalled or not.   I used their site heavily during the recalls, and then put together my own detailed file of the various manufacturers.

The food tested positive for aminopterin.

"Aminopterin, a derivative of folic acid, can cause cancer and birth defects in humans and can cause kidney damage in dogs and cats. Aminopterin is not permitted for use in the United States."  (color added by myself as a reminder)

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

Max2,

I applaud your enthusiasm, but I have to wonder are you planning on  doing this research yourself?  There are over 25,000 posts just on this forum and I have no idea how many on the blog.  Ye gad!  Just wanted to let you know up front that I am not going to be moving posts around and searching through posts.   It would be a monumental task.  Shocked  Just wondering what you are planning to do with this information.

But what is it for? 

I am not getting involved in it.  Sorry.

Max2,

I think that it is a great idea, but one that will be very time-consuming for you. I would suggest that you set up a separate web site for your research. You can go to www.geocities.com and get a free site.

One way to organize your web site would be to just have links on your site going to the various pages and sites.

You may want to include  links to information located on Pet Connection too as well as some of the lesser known blogs.

Good Luck and I'll be waiting to see your new site!

Max2,

To inquire whether or not a research forum could be set up here, you would have to contact the administrator, Itchmo himself.  Moderators cannot set up forums.

Did find this on Itchmo for starters:  http://www.itchmo.com/menu-foods-recall-fact-sheet
