    There was a similar incident several years ago involving Orijen cat food, and it turned out to be the way the food was irradiated to meet Australian government standards. The level of irradiation used was far beyond safe levels, and among other things it altered the nutritional aspects of the food, depleting vitamin A.
    The eventual symptoms include vomiting and neurological problems. I expect that this is being considered already, but it may well be that the government should be held responsible, especially since this would mean that they failed to correct the policy or procedure.
    Certainly, if the food was irradiated and that caused the problem, actions must be taken to make sure that there is never a third incident.
