Rodent poison found in now-recalled pet food blamed for animal deaths

(Albany,NY-AP) _Rat poison has been found in pet food blamed for the deaths of several animals around the country, a spokeswoman for the State Department of Agriculture and Markets said Friday.

Spokeswoman Jessica Chittenden would not identify the chemical or its source beyond saying it was a rodent poison.

State agriculture officials scheduled a news conference Friday afternoon to release laboratory findings from tests on the pet food conducted this week. The deaths led to a nationwide recall.

How can we get our money back? I feel ripped off. I am mad dang it. Not to mention my pets are in danger. Why don't the pet food plants have better Quality control? This should have never happened.
