Itchmo's looking for a specific Lot of Iams Dry Dog Food

Itchmo is asking you to find an unopened 20 lb. bag of Iams Large Breed dry dog food that matches the lot number: 260608 70574173 F4 US30940 with the expiration date of 6/26/08.

A toxicology test reported the presence of cyanuric acid in an opened bag of what is alleged to be Iams Large Breed dry dog food.

Read the story here and check to see if you have an unopened bag with that lot number.

I would like to point out how responsible Ben is being with this story.
1) They got independent testing
2) Provided testing documentation on the site
3) They are asking for a bag from the same lot number that is unopened to do a separate test.
4) They contacted the manufacturer for a response.
[Not "off the charts" at all, although I'm sure this is going to be "troublesome" to the PFI.]

This week the FDA and USDA canceled their press conferences because there was no news in this "on-going investigation".

I don't want to speculate on the results of another test and what might happen, but since all the feed that has been contaminated so far is claimed to have been based on "only two companies" in China, what happens if this is related to another company? Kind of blows a hole in the whole "It's contained, nothing new here, besides the Chinese government has already locked up the bad guys" (after the CEO destroyed the evidence my bulldozing his own plant!)

Oh and since Ben probably won't ask, throw him the equalivant of doggy treats with his donation button.
