It would be really interesting to know why the courts are not ordering them to sort & clean this mess under supervision.Sounds like someone is getting paid off.Maybe the executives who delayed the recall in order to dump their stock could pay for the cleanup.Of course that scenario would require the assistance of gov't agencies,& having them actually do their jobs would obviously be expecting too much.Once again proof that our system doen't work for the average citizen,only for BB who can afford lobbyists & campaign donations.

Lord, Don, that's the most important mission. Independent testing of the pre-recall pet food
would certainly prove a lot, wouldn't it? Anything one can do to help?

Don---Any value from pet owners with pre-recall food trying to get it tested???  I know a few that have pre-recall food from 2006--- and I'm sure there's more that just have not posted ---or would we have the same non-response as we have with other independent testing? Angry

After listening to Dr Lykissa--I am glad my food was tested there -- and glad I have more---but we need pre-recall food now.   

Any thoughts?

I wonder if the pet owners who are in the class action lawsuits could voice their displeasure to their attorneys in the evidence being destroyed???   Huh

Don you were great ! Got a lot of important info out . I really hope thios will be more widely available. Does anyone know if they will be selling a tape of it ? Or a written transcript ?

I sent a note to Karen about that earlier today and it's my understanding there will be an archived version available for download later on.

On another note, I recently uploaded a ton of stuff to my site about Menu's effort to see all nonrecall evidence destroyed here: http://www.petfoodrecallfacts.com/newpage.html

So far, my efforts to see some of that evidence preserved have failed. I spent most of this weekend and last week working on a motion to have the ruling reversed, which I hope to have ready to file tomorrow. The battle on this issue has been so fierce I can't imagine them going to the lengths they've gone to unless that's were the smoking guns are buried.

If I can get hold of enough of it to fill in the blanks on what was on store shelves for approximately the year prior to the recall, I think their house of cards is going to go up in flames. They know it. I know it. And no one if offering quarter. I'll post the text of the brief when I get it filed and from there I guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed I can get the thing resolved in my favor without having to go to the State Supreme Court, the US Supreme Court and everything inbetween. We'll see.


After reviewing Don's new page at his site---I see where Menu has omitted some dates of the recalled food---Specifially- I have those dates on bags in my freezer so I can not understand why these are not included?  Oversight ??---let's remember Menu displayed on the website stating they tested the same dates--yet now they are not listed as even being produced---How then can they be in my freezer?

Carol- Are you in 1 of the class action suits ? Maybe you could bring that discrepancy to their attention.They might go after the records & samples.The only food I have left unopened is not pre recall. I have others ,but they are open.

Forgot to say, isn't it interesting that only the Texas labs seem willing or able to do anything ?ExperTox is also Texas.

No leslieK---I am not part of any litigation---I have tried to send links to some of the attorneys about things I have found but no responses back...(maybe because I am not their client?)

I just don't understand the discrepancies---I only know of the food I was using firsthand---I wonder if dates are omittted for other brands---It just doesn't make sense---it appears that Menu is saying no food of certain types were manufactured yet I can look and see for myself---maybe I'll take a pix today and try to blow it up and post here---unless it is just an oversight--I would hate to see some of the food that had tested by Expertox as having melamine and acetaminophen not be on the save for evidence list....

So is this person doing this just to launch her own pet food line? Women like me -- ugh....not like me that's for sure.

Cooked foods are not good for cats, neither are foods that have veggies or fruits or grains in them. Cats have no nutritional requirement for any of these things. Making food that includes them simply means that the people involved do not really "get" what feeding an obligate carnivores is really about.

See:
www.catinfo.org
www.catnutrition.org

I think the name "trust pet cuisine" is problematic. Why should I trust you if you are putting grains, veggies and fruit into cat food?

My uncle is a lawyer & I am in the Fla suit. I will ask him to help me draft a letter about it. All they can do is turn me down, or ignore it. Maybe it will do some good.

I'm with Don, Leslie. Any chance you did get a letter to the New Jersey court drafted?
