Okay, it may look like I’m getting close to the end of sequel titles, but I’ve got a few more up my sleeve. It would be good if we get to the end of the recalls pretty soon, though. Today’s announcement by American Nutrition is a little farther ranging. That sounds like a pretty generic […]
And the hits just keep on comin’. Natural Balance has added more foods to their recall list, but the web link is the same. Drs. Foster & Smith are the new kids on the block. The summary is on the KVC webpage.
On a much smaller scale, thankfully. Two of the four new ones are in Canada and South Africa. One is an expansion of the original Menu Foods list. Only one seems to be a new player, and I must admit I’d never heard of them before: Blue Buffalo. As usual, I’ve added the new links […]
I keep thinking that everybody who even thinks that they might have a problem will have quit stone-walling by now and recalled their food. Yet, today we have another report from Natural Balance. Of course, it’s possible that their food problems have nothing to do with the previous reports. Maybe they’re the victim of mass […]
With two more recall notices today, I thought this would be a good time to pass on the Veterinary Information Network safe feeding guidelines. The new sites are on the KVC webpage. Q: What should pet owners feed their pets?A: In light of all the gaps in our understanding of this problem, there is no […]
Man, am I sick of this stuff. News reports tell us that dog biscuits made by Sunshine Mills and marketed under many names, including Ol’ Roy, are recalled. No reports of illness yet, but they bought their wheat gluten from one of the sources labelled as suspected of contamination. Throw out the rest of the […]
The expanded recall by Menu Foods today essentially moves back the manufacturing dates that they feel may have been contaminated. Since they already recalled all of their products in the stores, this expanded recall would only affect someone who had been hoarding the stuff from last fall. As you may recall, the only dry food […]
Sometime today I’m going to post on something more elevating, but I’ve added these links to the KVC webpage on Pet Food Recall. Purina‘s homepage lists a product that’s been recalled. Del Monte has issued a "precautionary recall". More to come, I fear.
Today we were able to recover three bags of M/D from our clients and get them a substitute diet. The diabetic cats don’t seem to be feeling bad. One of the cats is not diabetic, but was eating the food for weight control. She has been staying in Kennett as a temporary pet-sitting arrangement and […]
There has been new information released (and some more witheld) in the pet food recall. I have updated the KVC webpage on this twice today. Again, we have seen no pets affected here. We have had many people worried about it, but no kidney failure patients. The biggest concern for me is that we have […]
