From the Paper:"Before going too far, it is important to discuss in some detail the entire recall crisis. To begin with, a quick glance at the Menu Foods recall website reveals that the list of recalled items has grown recently and that ChemNutra Wheat Gluten appears to be the main culprit responsible for the crisis. Furthermore, the website indicates that Menu Foods is taking (or was as of March, 2007) steps to divine the cause of the illnesses striking the pets of customers - the identification of the aforementioned ChemNutra Wheat Gluten (and the massive recall of food products) would seem to be the most significant step."
