Toxic Pet Food

By  | 

The US Food and Drug Administration says at least 76 dogs nationwide, including Alabama, have died after eating contaminated pet food made at a Gaston, South Carolina, plant.

Officials at Diamond Pet Foods Incorporated have promised to reimburse pet owners for vet bills and other costs associated with the poisoning caused by a fungus on corn and other grains called aflatoxin.

The company set up a call center staffed with veterinarians. At its peak, the center received two-thousand calls a day, but was down to about 700 calls last week.
