Pet Food Recall Expanded

(WVLT) - Pet owners across the country have more reason to worry about the health of their furry family members, as the pet food recall continues to grow.

The Federal Drug Administration announced it has identified additional contaminated pet food products made previously unaffected manufacture; Sunshine Mills in Red Bay, Alabama.

This time, dog biscuits were found to contain the potentially toxic wheat gluten.

Walmart says they're recalling their Ol' Roy brand dog biscuits.

In addition, Menu Foods is expanding its recall to include pet food made as far back as November 8th.

Already under recall were products from Purina's Mighty Dog, Hill's Pet Nutrition's Science Diet, P & G Pet Care (includes Iams and Eubanka brands).

The FDA says all bad batches have now been identified and they don't expect any more recalls.

Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois says the senate plans to hold an oversight hearing on the ongoing investigation.
