Menu Foods has announced that two pet food brands sold in Canada were mistakenly left off a list of recalled brands that was issued earlier this month, but that the products already have been pulled from store shelves.
The products were part of a previously recalled batch of wet cat and dog foods that were produced with tainted wheat gluten supplied by ChemNutra Inc.
On May 2, Menu Foods recalled several additional products because of possible cross-contamination. But May 22, the company announced that it realized that it accidentally left off the two items in Canada that should have been included in the May 2 announcement.
The pet foods that should have been included in the original announcement are:
- Western Family Canada brand Chunks of Chicken/Gravy 374 g. canned cat food, UPC code 62639-19609
- Western Family Canada brand Chicken Cuts/Gravy 624g size canned dog food, UPC code 62639-19589
Anyone in Canada who has the recalled pet food products is advised to dispose of them, and contact the retailer they were purchased from for a refund.
An updated list of the recalled products, including these additions, is available at Menu Foods’ website.
