Dog Food Recall

EDITORS’ KEEP IN MIND: On Might 11, Natural Balance reported that it had actually offered the incorrect “finest by” date for one of its recalled Sweet Potato & & Venison canine foods. The right “best by” date for the 5 LB Natural Balance Sugary food Potato & & Venison Pet dog, UPC # 7-23633-88650-5, Lot Code NBH0103, is May 13, 2013. The story has been updated to show this modification.

All 4 brands reported that none of their products had actually tested favorable for Salmonella, however they had actually voluntarily remembered the products as a precautionary procedure. All the affected foods were made at Diamond Animal Foods’center in Gaston, S.C.

WellPet

WellPet LLC of Tewksbury, Mass., remembered one recipe of its Health dry pet dog food that had actually been produced at the Gaston plant, despite the fact that the foods have tested negative for Salmonella, WellPet reported.

Wellness Full Health Super5Mix Big Breed Puppy 15-pound, 30-pound and 5-ounce bags with “best by” dates of JAN 9 2013 through JAN 11 2013.

The “best by” dates (lot codes) can be discovered on the back of the bag in the bottom right-hand corner. No other WellPet recipes, sizes or brands of food are affected by this voluntary recall, the company reported.

WellPet prompted pet owners who are unsure if the Wellness product they purchased is consisted of in the recall, would like replacement item or have additional questions, to call its customer service line at -LRB-877-RRB- 227-9587 (Monday – Friday, 8:00 AM through 6:00 PM Eastern time; Saturday and Sunday, 9:00 AM through 5:00 PM Eastern time).

The company also reported that it is no longer buying any product from Diamond and that the majority of its products are made at its own Indiana plant. The business likewise states that it checks each great deal of food for Salmonella.

Natural Balance

Natural Balance remembered several dry canine foods that had been made in the Gaston plant. Samples had tested unfavorable for Salmonella, but the company opted to remember out of an “abundance of caution.”
