From Abigail Goodman and Don Lee at the LA Times, with the headline “Reports say pet food death toll e...

I fed it a couple years ago until I adopted our Pit bull, who had kennel-stress demodex. A nutritionist asked me to switch foods and do some other supplements (can of mackrel a week) so we moved all dogs to Flint River (yes, it has grains, but every single ingredient is U.S. so I'm not moving anywhe...

The recall has been expanded....cross-contamination now. First and foremost, we have more recalls. From the PetSmart Web site: Update as of May 2, 2007 Menu Foods has expanded its recall as a result of the ongoing investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration into wet cat and dog food produ...

This is a great article in SF Gate - http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/g/a/2007/05/01/petscol.DTL There was a time when dog owners stood in groups at the dog park or debated on e-mail lists arguing about the relative merits of different brands of pet food or the benefits and drawbacks of home...

I'm so sorry - it's all of ours worst fears for those that are feeding commercial kibble. Keep your food - your vet can send off some of it for testing, but don't send it back to the company. You want to have the proof of which food caused their problem. Contact Natural Balance and/Chicken Soup - I'...

I would not want to have stock in ANI - here's another recall - We regret to inform you that Sierra Pet Products has announced a voluntary recall of its Harmony Farms canned foods and dog biscuits due to product tampering. Sierra Pet Products was made aware of the product tampering when American Nut...

We have to have some humor about this, especially when we can poke at the FDA - this is from itchmo's site: For Immediate Press Release The entire staff of the FDA has been recalled. This includes all dates of issue and is a purely precautionary measure. Only a few hundred heads have exploded during...

But to be somewhat fair, for example with Blue Buffalo, if they don't have it in the ingredients list supplied, and it's slipped in there (I'm guessing not visible to naked eye), and their quality testing of batches was for known afloxin molds or whatever, then how are they supposed to know? I'm sur...

Hang in there, lots of well wishes out there for Rebel.

Will they give him one of your t-shirts, something you wore recently, to sleep with? Would probably comfort him and make you feel a little better.

So far, no Kirkland dry is recalled, but the dry is made by Diamond Foods who is recalling some of their own because of ANI - the fact that ANI didn't tell that they were putting rice protein in the products makes me not trust anything that ANI had a hand in, which would include the Kirkland dry. Su...

It's really not funny when the FDA, who is supposed to be in charge of our food supply, won't tell us where the rest of this contaminated crap went. But yes, having the manufacturer's take an ingredients list and agree to prepare a food product using the exact recipe, but then change it and not tell...

Some of these were being recalled AS THE FDA was giving a press conference claiming they knew nothing about any more recalls. Not sure what's scarier, that they are so stupid and ill informed they really didn't know or they are lying to the consumers. I don't think anger is an accurate description o...
