Pet food recalls

Deb D’Andrea, Nederland.  There have been a flurry of pet food recalls since the beginning of 2017, with one of the most recent recalls being from “Against the Grain” found to contain pentobarbital; as was “Evanger’s Hunk of Beef.” Metal pieces were discovered in “Grreat Choice Adult Dog Food with Chicken & Rice” spurring it’s recall. These three recalls were listed in February 2017 on the website:


Even though I cook and feed raw for my dogs, I still periodically check the FDA web site for recall listings in order to keep my clients and friends informed. I know many people who feed Evanger’s and I posted online when I read about their recall to alert pet parents.
