Guys, the massive amount of "Pet Food Recall" threads is getting a bit out of hand, so I'm setting up this thread so we can keep all the important recall updates in one spot at the top of the forum where everyone can find it.

Innova (naturapet) does use Menu Foods for its canned products; however, the plant is in South Dakota not Kansas. Naturapet's website has a brief and very informative video about the safety of their food products and what they are going to do because of this food recall with Menu Foods. For anyone who uses Innova canned products or any of naturapet canned products you should go to their website and watch this video regarding Menu foods and their recall. www.naturapet.com

I know but they do use Menu food plants and they are changing their quality control standards because of this recall which I think is important for those who use their products know about, which includes myself. I recommend that everyone periodically check the dog/cat food website of the company they use as they are keeping updates on this recall whether or not they are affected (at least all the responsible ones are) which I appreciated. Had I not checked their website I would not have even known that they do use menu foods for their canned products and I appreciate their honesty.

update on recall

link http://health.msn.com/healthnews/articlepage.aspx?cp-documentid=100159792&GT1=9246

SUNDAY, April 1 (HealthDay News) -- The massive pet food recall widened over the weekend to include two major brands of moist dog food, pet snacks, and, for the first time, a brand of dry cat food.

Food giant Del Monte announced late Saturday that it was recalling a number of dog and cat foods from its Pet Products division. These include select product codes from Jerky Treats, Gravy Train Beef Sticks and Pounce Meaty Morsels brands. Dog snacks and wet dog food products sold under private label brands have also been recalled, the company said on its Web site, delmonte.com.

and more

Re: update on recall

My mom and her friend feed kibble and bits . I did not see them on the list but I had her to read ingredients and it contained wheat products. I told her to get them off it now and I would fine them a better food . I am still feeding Nutro lamb and rice natural small bites to my inside dogs as I dont have any high end pet food dealers close . Thinking about natural balance but not sure where all this recall will end . Nutro dry contains no wheat . This is realy scary no one realy cares about the pets thats being lost . No amount of money will replace my kids . So I have to worry about keeping them safe .:mad: :mad: :mad:

Re: update on recall

This is so darn scary! Achilles was on Nutro for a while but we switched him to Merrick a few months back before the recall...lucky we did. :/ I feel so bad for all the dogs that were affected by this! AND NOW...the delmonte foods and jerky treats recall...this is just too much! I'm scared of who to trust anymore! :(

Re: update on recall

My rabbit and chicken fillets said "product of china" on the package so I threw out what was opened today and returned the rest (the pet store gave me no problem whatsoever)--better safe than sorry.

Re: update on recall

Nutro Dry(at least, the stuff I got) does not have any wheat products in it. I checked in a panic. It must be the canned you guys are talking about?

Re: update on recall

I noticed that Authority was on the recall list.

I do not feed my dog this brand. However, I do have Authority Training Treats with Beef & Chicken. They were not specifically on the list that I saw.

Here are the ingredients: beef, corn gluten meal, corn flour, soy grits, pregelatinized corn starch, wheat flour, chicken, glycerine...

Should I be worried?

Orchid doesn't get these treats very often. She seems extremely healthy. Should I take her to the vet's office just in case?

Re: update on recall

Snowshoe: I am not sure that the Authority treats were recalled, but IMHO I wouldn't even risk ANYTHING from the recalled brands. My mom just called this morning (she gets her recall updates from me) and asked about the Ol'Roy treats. I don't think they have been recalled, but I advised her not to give them to Sandy because all other Ol'Roy food has been recalled and I just wouldn't want to risk it.

Sandy was having really loose stool with the Ol'Roy treats too...which she never did before, so we can only hope they do not have the problematic ingredients! She is going to take Sandy to the vet to be safe though...she hasn't had on of the treats in a week or so and no loose stool...so hopefully it was just a delayed reaction or something!

Yes, but not for the recall reasons ( wink wink) thats alot of corn and other "useless" ingredients for treats!
I too would avoid most pet foods for now. Atleast until this is all settled. It seems like everyday something else is added. Im sure you'll sleep better and your dogs will thank you if you look into "alternative" treats.

I agree. Although I don't think the treats we have are very good either! We have Pupperoni and those little Milk Bones in the red box. Oh gee I don't even know the actual manufacturers of either one! :( I guess I need to re-think the snack side of things.

I think Natural Balance makes treats? What are some other healthier ones? I have recently stopped all Greenies and also will be stopping rawhide altogether.

Re: update on recall

Thanks guys, for the info.

When I saw that Authority was on the list my heart went up in my throat and I literally started sweating.

I know they're a crappy treat. I'm going today to get another brand. I had a silly moment when I purchased them. :(

I'm slowly switching the Chid to a raw diet. We're 3/4 of the way there.

I've thought about making liver treats...but I'm a terrible cook. LOL!!!! I'd no doubt burn them and she'd tell me how bad they were. (When she's annoyed she tries to make people noises).

I wish I'd never bought those stupid crappy treats!!!!!!

I wouldn't worry too much about the treats...I'm sure they were okay!

I switched to Nutro dry food about a month or so before the recall and I fed three cans of canned! I almost DIED when I saw that it was recallled!!

Thank god Bridgette is okay, because I have absolutely NO IDEA what I would have done...
