Menu Foods, which makes some Nutro petfood products, issued a series of recalls in 2007, after reports of dog illnesses where at least 10 deaths occurred. The Pet Food Products Safety Alliance says it found high levels of copper and zinc when it tested Nutro petfood in August 2008.
Another class action lawsuit against Menu Foods recently settled for US$24 million.
