Tainted pet food allegedly kills cats

The deaths of several dogs and cats have led to a recall of pet food made at an Ontario plant. The food, which looks like chunks of beef in gravy, is made by Menu Foods but sold in cans and foil pouches under dozens of different brand names, including Safeway, Wal-Mart, Kroger and PetSmart. Premium brands Iams, Eukanuba and Nutro are also part of the recall. The tainted food has caused liver failure that's led to the deaths of at least 10 cats and dogs nationwide.

Sometimes these closures mean more people on the slopes, but warnings that a blizzard was bearing down on the region may have kept a lot of people in doors. Goff explains why the National Weather Service issued the blizzard warning.  Go to full article
