Please note that for both cats and dogs, this is only the wet food, usually the "cuts and gravy" kind. I about had a heart attack over the weekend because a kind of food both my and my parents' cats eat was on the list.

If your cat or dog is refusing to eat or acting unlike his/her usual self, please get to the vet! These foods are believed to have caused serious kidney problems and even death in some pets.

Here are the cat food brands:

1. Americas Choice, Preferred Pets
2. Authority
3. Best Choice
4. Companion
5. Compliments
6. Demoulas Market Basket
7. Eukanuba
8. Fine Feline Cat

10. Foodtown
11. Giant Companion
12. Hannaford

I can't believe Nutro is on that list. Although we normally don't feed our cats the wet food - just occasionally as a treat...

I bought Nutro because I thought it was another brand not affiliated with all those others like Iams and Science Diet. Now I find out that its all one big company...

Have to find another brand I guess. Any suggestions which are not on the above list?

I feed my dog Wellness, canned and dry. It's one of the best foods out there, in my opinion.

Hmm, I've seen this stuff before. Does anyone else give this to their cats? It seems a little $$ so I want to make sure it's worth it...

That's one of the brands of dry food that my and my parents' cats eat as a treat, so I was really worried.

My cat doesn't usually eat wet food, but he had an antibiotic recently that needed to be mixed with wet food. He liked the Meow Mix Market Selects and the Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys. They were a little expensive (the FF was 75 cents a can), but if you're just using them as a treat, it should be okay.

One of my mom's cat eats some of the recalled stuff. He has bad teeth, so he likes to eat food with gravy so he can lick all the gravy up. He seems like he is all right, but she's really worried.

I couldnt believe it was on the list as well

I used to feed my cats Nutro because it has no by-products and its a great food.

Well now they are both on vet RX diets so at least I dont have to worry about the recall stuff but that is really depressing.

My cats eat a mixture of Iams kitten (Marijke), Authority and Science Diet - the Authority Indoor Adult is nearly scent-less and has REALLY helped control the smell of multiple litter boxes in a little apartment, but eating that alone they are always hungry so the Science Diet is what they enjoy and has kept them all at a good weight.

Luckily, none of them ever get wet food unless it's the free stuff that comes in the litter buckets, so they should be safe.

However, my mom told me her friend's dog died of kidney failure unexpectedly, just days after she'd seen a vet and been given a perfect bill of health. Hmm....

Just the fact that it's all human grade and is all meat based with no corn or fillers is enough for me. I check the ingredients on her food just like I do mine now. If I won't eat the stuff it's made of I won't give it to her. My dog eats better than I do, that's for sure.

It sounds like the problems caused by these foods have been very quick moving. Food recalls for humans are a little less worrisome in my mind, because people can tell when they need to see a doctor. Even children can cry or somehow indicate that something is wrong. With pets, they may be acting fine until they're very, very sick.

It amazes me that so many different brands are all made by the same company, from store brands all the way up through some of the highly regarded brand names.

It's scary that there have been so many problems recently with both people and pet foods. You'd think that health and safety would be among the highest concern for companies, but I worry that some cut corners when they think they can get away with it.

Here's one of the articles about the recall. This has to do with a fungus that is found on corn and other crops. Corn is a common ingredient in most commercial pet foods. In my opinion, not exactly the natural diet of carnivorous animals (and yes I know some consider certain species omnivorous). At any rate, this is part of why I feed a meat based food.

My dog eats dry food from the vet, but it is still so scary. How do you ever know for sure what's really in it and that it's not contaminated somehow?
