New Recall by Royal Canin Canada

Post by blkcatga » Tue, 24 Apr 2007 01:31:50



Please see www.itchmo.com for the latest recall.  Appears this may just
involve Canadian products but I am not sure.

UPDATE: The toxin found in these foods is cyanuric acid - not melamine. This
is the first recall attributed to cyanuric acid.
  Royal Canin has discovered a new contaminant in rice gluten. This
contaminant is cyanuric acid, which is chemically related to, but distinct
from, melamine.

ORIGINAL POST: Due to contaminated rice protein concentrate, Royal Canin has
recalled the following cat and dog products from Canada on Friday:

  a.. Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine EARLY CARDIAC
  b.. Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine SENSITIVITY RC (Rice and Catfish)
  c.. Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine SKIN SUPPORT
  d.. Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline HYPOALLERGENIC HP
  e.. Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline SENSITIVITY RD (Rice and Duck)

Apparently these are some the same foods as were previously
recalled....Royal Canin is changing the toxin that they found....it's not
melamine but cyanuric acid.

My chemists suggest that this is a melamine precursor. S***from a nearby
plastics plant added to increase tonnage or very improperly made
plasticware used to process the gluten!

This begs the question of what fumes are being emitted by non-edibles fromn
China, like childrens' (and pets') toys and clothing. Remind me to stay
away from the bargain aisle at Walmart.

Maybe we are better off biting the inflation bullet and severely limiting
trade with China until they get some semblance of control over their
quality and integrity issues. There are other developing countries doing a
better job of monitoring what they export.

As I understand it, cyanuric acid is a byproduct of melamine.
