Pet Connection updated numbers
As of 5 p.m. PT, with 1120 reports into the PetConnection.com recall database:
- Cats, deceased: 313
- Dogs, deceased: 189
More than 500 dead pets. Same caveats as before: This is self-reported information. But any way you look at it, even if half the reports don’t meet the standards of an “official” count because the pets died before the recall, people weren’t sure exactly what food they bought, etc., it’s pretty darn clear that those “official” numbers from the FDA will be heading much higher than they are now.
