Acetaminophen in cat food – Tylenol scare – is it real?

Our question this week was:

I just want to know if there is any more information about this Tylenol contamination. It is unconscionable that in the interests of "confidentiality" information that might save my cats life is being withheld from the public. Can you give me any information as to an agency to which I can call/write and demand further clarification? In the interim, thank you for getting the word out. I saw something on the Tylenol issue about 2 weeks ago on our local Portland TV news but absolutely nothing since. I was hoping it was a hoax, but apparently it is not.

Warm regards,

Kathleen Clohessy

Hi Kathleen,

Thanks for your email. I could not agree with you more! It is unconscionable that in the interests of "confidentiality" information that might save my cats life is being withheld from the public. It is hard to believe!

I've been researching this daily. It sounds like an independent lab say they found acetaminophen then the FDA could not confirm it by an independent lab. So as of now, they believe it is not a real scare. I'll keep my eye out for any new information and keep you posted if something new comes up.

An article that might be helpful to you is Pet Food Recall Update.

Regards,

Dr. Jon
