The calls from pet owners or veterinarians regarding this issue have been centered in the Rochester, NY area. All retail outlets shipped the above lots were contacted, asking them to pull the product from the store shelves. The retailers were also asked to contact their customers via email or telephone requesting them to check the date code of the food. However, if you or anyone you know has these date codes of Premium Edge cat food, please return them to your retailer.
Symptoms displayed by an affected cat will be neurological in nature. Any cats fed these date codes that display these symptoms should be immediately taken to a veterinarian.
Product testing proved no contaminants were discovered in the cat food; however the cat foods were deficient in thiamine. Diamond tracked the vitamin premix lot number that was utilized in these particular cat foods and have performed testing on another lot of Premium Edge cat food that used the same vitamin premix, and it was not deficient in thiamine. No other neurological signs have been reported on any other product manufactured by Diamond Pet Foods.

Here is a press release dated April 1 on Menu Foods website:
Menu Foods Income Fund (TSX: MEW.UN) announced that the parties to the Pet Food Multi-District Litigation (including Menu Foods) today advised the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey that their mediation has produced a comprehensive, cross-border agreement in principle between the parties, addressing all major terms of settlement.
The settlement in principle is subject to several conditions, including the approval of certain other parties, the execution of a definitive settlement agreement and review and approval of the U.S. District Court and the Canadian courts. The parties advised the court that they are confident that a definitive settlement agreement can be reached.
The definitive terms of settlement, together with a motion for preliminary approval thereof, are scheduled to be filed with the U.S. District Court on May 1, 2008, with the hearing scheduled to occur at 11:00 a.m. on May 14, 2008. The scheduling for Canadian court approval has not yet been determined, but is expected to occur in a similar time frame.
The settlement amount will be funded by the defendants, including Menu Foods and its product liability insurer. Menu Foods estimate for recall costs remains unchanged at Cdn.$55 million. Pet owners with potential claims should not contact Menu Foods regarding the agreement in principle. If and when a definitive settlement agreement and claims process have been finalized and approved, the administrator of the settlement fund will give notice to pet owners with details on the procedure for making claims on the settlement fund.

[Seattle Post Intelligence] Not only can you get a face-lift for your dog, but you can even order up a mammary lift for her droopy tits after she's had her puppies...

Best known in the U.S. as the filmmaker whose "City on Fire" inspired Quentin Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs," Ringo Lam hasn't made a feature since the 2003 direct-to-video Jean-Claude Van Damme vehicle, "In Hell." Lam did partake in the 2007 triptych "Triangle," but the state of Hong Kong filmmaking has since transformed completely.
At the outset, it sounds like the dream life for movie fans: growing up surrounded by thousands of films at your fingertips, spending all of your free time watching the best that cinema has to offer, and re-creating your favorite scenes together with your closest friends. Such an existence might seem like utopia to some of us until you reach the one catch: you're not allowed to leave the house.
Along with every other big genre movie coming this year and beyond, Quentin Tarantino of course hit the Con this year, showing eight minutes of his new movie, The Hateful Eight, which hits theaters on Christmas Day. As usual, Tarantino had a lot to say, and one of the big revelations of his Con q&A is that he's working with Ennio Morricone again, the famed composer ofrom The Good the Bad and the Ugly.
Academy Award-winning writer/director Quentin Tarantino and the cast of his upcoming feature The Hateful Eight are set to appear at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. The director and actors behind the Christmas Day release will appear in a Hall H panel on Saturday, July 11th at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time.
Hollywood tough guy Harvel Keitel says he's far better giving soul-baring performances in movies than getting too personal with reporters to promote them. He can't even fake it.
