Champion PetFoods has pulled out of the Australian market after the pet food Orijen was linked to the deaths of 6 cats and the paralysis of dozens more.
Australian law requires the Orijen pet food to be irradiated before sold to pet owners and Champion is saying that the irradiation is the cause of the mysterious cat deaths. This may well be the case.
However, there have been no problems with other pet foods after irradiation and all imported food is irradiated before entering the country. I wonder if many humans had to be euthanised after eating irradiated food?
