An update to a previous blog posting on the Menu Foods cat and dog food recall -- the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets announced today that scientists at the New York State Food Laboratory have identified Aminopterin as a toxin present in cat food samples from Menu Foods.  Aminopterin, a derivative of folic acid, is used as rat poison in some countries, and can cause cancer and birth defects in humans and can cause kidney damage in dogs and cats.

Menu Foods has scheduled a media teleconference for Friday.  Related resources:
