Off-topic News: Massive Pet Food Recall
This has nothing to do with tech but everything to do with the fact I use my pet as my mascot.
93 brands: The pet-food manufacturer Menu Foods was not a household name until it announced a massive recall Friday, but many of the brand names it was sold under would be familiar to any pet owner. At first unable to tell the extent of the possible problems, officials with Menu Foods later posted on its website a list of scores of affected brands of dog and cat food. The company has recalled specific products from 51 brands of dog food and 42 brands of cat food.
It’s for dog and cat food it manufactured between December 3, 2006 and March 6, 2007 — “cuts and gravy” style pet food in cans and pouches.
