    Dog Food Danger to Pets and Owners
    BY DAN FLYNN | JUN 19, 2010
    Possible Salmonella contamination of dog food brought a recall Friday from a California company.

    Natural Balance Pet Foods Inc. recalled its Natural Balance Sweet Potato & Chicken Dry Dog Food with the "Best By" date of June 17, 2011, in 5-lb. and 28-lb. bags because of the potential it is contaminated with Salmonella.

    The recall was issued after a sample in a routine test conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) came back positive for Salmonella.

    No illnesses have yet been associated with the recall.

    The recalled product was manufactured on Dec.17, 2009.

    Salmonella in dry pet food can infect both humans and animals.

    For humans, symptoms of Salmonella include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever.

    More serious ailments including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract problems. Anyone exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

    Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain.

    Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

    Recalled products were only distributed in pet specialty stores in the states of Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

    Consumers who have purchased Natural Balance Sweet Potato & Chicken Dry Dog formula with the "Best By" date of June 17, 2011, are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

    For additional information, please contact Natural Balance Pet Foods Customer Service at (800) 829-4493 (8a.m. - 5p.m., PDT) or by visiting www.naturalbalanceinc.com.

    As the result of a potential high level of Vitamin D, the Blue Buffalo Company voluntarily recalled their Wilderness Chicken, Basics Salmon, and Large Breed Adult Chicken dry dog foods on October 8, 2010. The recall was prompted by several dozen reports of dogs eating Blue Buffalo foods that showed signs of Vitamin D toxicity, which subsided when the dogs were switched to a different food.

    Testing and investigation did not show high amounts of Vitamin D in the foods, but did reveal a scheduling error at a manufacturing plant that may have affected the Blue Buffalo formulas. The company issued the voluntary recall as a precaution, citing a "zero tolerance" policy for ingredients that do not match their specifications. President Bill Bishop, in a letter to pet owners posted on the company website stated, "I think you’ll agree that our decision to withdraw these specific products is simply the right thing to do."
    Signs of Excess Vitamin D Intake

    Dogs that receive an excess amount of Vitamin D may develop hypervitaminosis, which leads to abnormally high serum calcium levels and bone loss. Early symptoms include lethargy, excess water consumption, and excess urination. Dogs that exhibit these signs should see a veterinarian. If left untreated, Vitamin D toxicosis may result in kidney stone or calcification of the kidneys, heart, or other organs.

    The recalled Blue Buffalo dog foods are:

    BLUE Wilderness Chicken: 4.5 lb., 11 lb., and 24lb. bags with "Best Used By Date" codes JUL1211B, JUL1311B, JUL2611Z, JUL2711Z, and JUL2811Z
    BLUE Basics Salmon: 11 lb. and 24 lb. bags with "Best Used By Date" codes AUG2111B and AUG2211B
    BLUE Large Breed Adult Chicken: 30 lb. bags with "Best Used By Date" codes SEP 22 11 P, SEP 23 11 P, and OCT 26 11 P

    Blue Buffalo foods are sold at PetCo, PetsMart, Pet Supplies Plus, Tractor Supply Company, and manyindependent pet food retailers in the Metro Detroit area. The affected products will be removed from retailers' shelves; dog owners who have any of the products at home should stop feeding them immediately. Customers can contact Blue Buffalo at 1-877-523-9114 to arrange for a return of the product and reimbursement.

    Possible E. Coli Contamination in Canadian Pet Food
    Beef pet food in British Columbia may contain potentially deadly bacteria.
    Posted: November 15, 2010, 2 a.m. EST

    Canadian beef pet food may be linked to E. ColiThe Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Public Health Agency of Canada are warning the public not to use beef pet food sold last month at two locations in Canada’s British Columbia province because it may contain E. coli.

    The affected product was made by Surrey Meat Packers of Cloverdale, British Columbia. It was sold in 500-gram blocks assembled into 10-unit and 50-unit packages from Oct. 8 to Oct. 23 on location at Surrey Meat Packers, 6050-176th St., Cloverdale, and at Jolly Meats and Fine Foods, 111 Charles St., North Vancouver, B.C.

    The pet food may not bear a label indicating packing date or “Best If Used By” date, according to the agencies. Consumers who suspect they may have purchased the affected product are advised to check with the store where the pet food was purchased. Any affected food should be thrown out.

    The Canadian Food Inspection Agency reported that it identified the contamination during a food safety investigation of some beef trims. The investigation is ongoing. No illnesses associated with the affected pet food have been reported.

    Infection from E coli may cause serious and potentially life-threatening illnesses in humans. Symptoms include severe abdominal pain and bloody diarrhea. Although most people recover within seven to 10 days, pregnant women, people with compromised immune systems, young children and the elderly are most at risk for developing serious complications, according to the health agency.

    Wellpet, the makers of Wellness Pet Foods, announced on their website today a recall notice on a few varieties of canned cat food due to low levels of thiamine. From President Tim Callahan's letter:


    Please know, the vast majority of products tested had the appropriate levels of thiamine; however, with the number of recipes we offer, we did not want to make this more confusing. Therefore to avoid confusion and in an abundance of caution, we have decided to recall all canned cat products with the specific date codes noted below. Cats fed only product with inadequate levels of thiamine for several weeks may be at risk for developing a thiamine deficiency. If treated promptly, thiamine deficiency is typically reversible.Though the chance of developing this deficiency is remote, withdrawing these products is the right thing to do and we are removing it from retailers' shelves.​
    The actual recall is for the following items as well as what to do if you have this product:


    The lots involved in this voluntary recall are:

    Wellness Canned Cat (all flavors and sizes) with best by dates from 14APR 13 through 30SEP13;

    Wellness Canned Cat Chicken & Herring (all sizes) with 10NOV13 or 17NOV13 best buy dates.

    Consumers who still have cans of cat food from these lots should stop feeding them to their cats and call us at (877) 227-9587 Monday through Friday, 9:00 am – 7:00 pm Eastern Time. Consumers with further questions should visit our website at www.wellnesspetfood.com or call us at this same number.​
    Kudos to Wellpet for being forthright and and placing this recall front and center on their website. H/T To Gina and thePetConnection crew for the heads up on this recall!

    There was a salmonella outbreak back then and it was on protein supplements for American bulldogs. This news made headlines and a lot of dogs died because of this product. Salmonella contaminated foods are very toxic and they should be reported immediately to prevent another outbreak.
