Timberwolf food recall????

Postby Maryellen » Fri Jan 09, 2009 1:30 pm

forwarded to me in my email:



If you feed this food - don't.

I just found out from my pet food store (Cutters Mill) last week that
Timberwolf had a recall on several types of their dry dog food. This
information came up in a conversation with one of the employees and
was not announced or posted anywhere in the store. It has been kept
very hush, hush by the Timberwolf Organics comany.

Apparently there have been reports of this food making dogs ill for
months and months which was, even after all of the recalls a year or
so ago, were not immediately addressed or addressed at all for months
by the company. They have never issued an explanation and have been
very uncooperative with consumers who have tried to contact them
either with concerns or regarding their pet's illnesses.

Please don't feed this food and please tell anyone you know who may
feed it not to do so. I was shocked about this information and am
very concerned as I liked the ingredients of the food and, thinking I
was providing a healthy choice for my dogs, regularly have fed
Timberwolf for about a year and a half.

Here are a few links to information:

That happened in the summer and I believe it was posted on their site.

This recall is over. It has been months.

Timberwolf resolved the issue - very quickly - last summer. Your local shop owner is about 6 months behind and needs to get some updated info.

For more detailed info check the Timberwolf website.

You might consider editing - if possible - your thread subject line to avoid spreading outdated info.

Thanks

Also - note the dates of the articles are JUNE of 2008.

I would suggest to readers of this forum that you do more research on this site and others before coming to any conclusions about any dog food or type of diet.

What is reasonable and feasible for one dog / owner may not work for another dog / owner. TimberWolf produces a kibble believed by many to be very good. They handled the recall very responsibly. The reasons they initiated the recall were far from severe.

If we are to bash a food manufacturer - lets bash one that uses various grains for the first 5 ingredients......
