The company is working with scientists from Cornell's College of Veterinary Medicine to pinpoint the cause. Cornell officials said yesterday they have so far been unable to locate anything in either the food or the tissues of dead animals that would explain causation in the illnesses and deaths.

Menu Foods said Friday that the products in question were made using wheat gluten from a new supplier and that the company now is using a difference source for this material.

Cornell also supplied researchers in the earlier recall case, which began in the fall of 2005 and continued into 2006. In that episode, at least 76 dog deaths across the U.S. were attributed to contaminated food produced by Diamond Pet Foods Inc. In that instance, food had been contaminated by toxic and naturally occurring, produced by fungus on corn and other grains. These produced liver damage, unlike the symptoms in the current recall.
