Re: Current recalls on Pet food and Items

I received an alert about a week or two ago about Merrick dog treats.
I received that alert and posted it trying not to start an all out panic....and getting in trouble! Lol! It was for their treats and was a small lot of them, mostly in Texas with possible salmonella. There was a lot number also. There were no reported illnesses. I understand that salmonella recalls are basically for dog owners themselves due to hand washing issues after touching the food and not so much the dogs themselves? I would contact the dog food advisor and let them know their alert was LATE!

Re: Current recalls on Pet food and Items

Does anyone have any updates on Canidae dog food? This food made my dogs very sick about 3 years ago and I've never used it again. Just wondering if they're still around and if they fixed the problems with their food.

I'm right above you in VA, so they also most likely distribute our foods from that plant as well.

Re: Current recalls on Pet food and Items

Yep, way too close to home for us to be "safe".
I am still using the 4Health Chicken and Rice formula ... no problems here. I bought Canidae ALS just for Lucy yesterday ...hope I did not make a mistake. I was staying clear of the TOTW for a bit? Hope I did my homework right? :doh:

Re: Current recalls on Pet food and Items

I've got 1/3 of my Kirkland, no ill effects for my dogs. I think they've closed the plant more to insure a proper clean up and sterilization of processing equipment.

Canidae is made by Diamond as well. You can look at the code on the bag and if it has a X about 1/2-3/4 way through the code, it is made in Gaston SC.

Of course at this time, only the DN L&R has been recalled-and the plant is closed for cleaning. But if you see ANY symptoms that are not normal, be cautious.

IF your food doesn't come from SC, it should be fine.....Should be, of course being the important words. :)

I know the MO plant code is M--not sure about Ca. So I'd say yours is probably from MO with the M. :) But you can always call customer service to check, just to be sure if you're concerned. :)

Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul
http://www.lifewithdogs.tv/2012/04/recall-alert-chicken-soup-for-the-pet-lovers-soul/
Diamond Pet Food issued a recall on April 10, 2012 for a limited number of dry dog food bags. That recall was expanded today to include certain lots of its Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul dog food. Laboratory analysis completed by ODA’s Consumer Protection Laboratory showed the pet food tested positive for Salmonella contamination.
