FDA testing of Menu Foods’ products did not turn up evidence of rat poison, and the contaminant now suspected is melamine, a chemical used in the manufacture of plastics and as a type of fertilizer. Melamine has been found in wheat gluten (which serves as a binding agent and source of protein in pet foods) imported from China and used by Menu Foods, but toxicologists are unsure whether it is sufficiently toxic at the levels detected so far to have caused the reported cases of kidney failure in cats and dogs.

May 11, 2007 Update: today recalled eight new dog foods and seven Kasco brand dog foods and cat foods due to the products containing trace amounts of a melamine derivative (cyanuric acid?) from contaminated rice protein concentrate that was provided to the company by Cereal Byproducts (the second company — Wilbur-Ellis being the first — to receive tainted rice protein concentrate from China).
At least eleven companies have now been included in the recall of tainted pet food and treats: Menu Foods, Hill's, Nestle Purina PetCare Co., Royal Canin, Del Monte Pet Products, Sunshine Mills Inc., Natural Balance Pet Foods, Wilbur-Ellis, Cereal Byproducts, American Nutrition, and Chenango Valley Pet Foods.I purchased Retriever brand canned dog food for my mother's Australian Shepherd and he seemed to like it. A few weeks later, I began giving a couple tablespoons of the canned food to my purebred collie, mixed with his kibble, each night. My mother's Aussie began experiencing terrible seizures, which we attributed to his age - about 9 years old. Soon after, I rushed to the side of my collie who had a seizure that lasted several minutes. Both dogs had same onset symptoms. My mother and I live miles apart and our dogs were not in the same household or yard at any time. The only common denominator was the Retriever canned food. I did my research and discovered that Simmons (Menu) Pet Foods were part of the largest pet food recall in US history back in 2006 (maybe that resulted in the name change). A voluntary pet food recall of more than 100 brands of dog food and cat food has been initiated by Menu Foods as of March 16th, 2007, following the deaths of thousands of cats and dogs and many more reports of kidney failure in pets after having eaten "Cuts and Gravy"-style wet pet foods made by Menu Foods.Further research through several veterinarians and the folks at the USDA indicated that Menu/Simmons pet food company is still utilizing euthanized animals, rendering them down (the meat-by-products on the label presumably), but not testing to ensure the euthanasia drugs like ** are absent before the foods are canned. Unfortunately, most dogs cannot metabolize such drugs and after the poisons build up in a dog's brain, the levels can become toxic, causing mental 'episodes', seizures, or even death. DO NOT FEED YOUR DOG RETRIEVER PET FOODS. There were also a few complaints about the dry foods.
