Kibbles 'n Bits

I don't normally comment on recalls but this one is irritating me.  Smuckers, the parent company, refuses to use the word recall, this is a voluntary withdrawal - let's play with words, huh?
The investigation has devolved to one provider and it ain't our fault is about the context I've seen.  Their attitude says a lot to me about the company ...

Thank you for the info. I think parent company is semantics for monopoly, anyway. What do they really care about pets? Profit is all it's about. Which is why some FDA regulation is necessary. If they are policing their own products, how do they make it out the door with contaminants?

It seems everyone has woken up from the lull of awkward no recalls forever and now throwing them all out at once. I am saddened by how many "Good" brands are showing up in these recent batches of recalls. Aside from the Smuckers recall most of the recent recalls are what one would usually consider quality brands.

Darwin's has recalled more of its dog food (Natural Selections and ZooLogics Dog Foods) after more tests showed samples of it were contaminated. This is just the latest in a string of recalls for Darwin's — and the FDA has grown so concerned about it that it has published a blistering report chronicling all the troubles. The FDA says Darwin's has demonstrated a "pattern of contamination" and "a history of recalls and multiple complaints." OUCH. Here's what you need to know:

Petful Website

-or-

The FDA Website

-or-

Dog Food Advisor

Note this comes from the first paragraph of the FDA Announcement:


FDA wrote:
The FDA is alerting pet owners to a history of five recalls of and multiple complaints associated with Darwin’s Natural Selections and Darwin's ZooLogics pet foods, manufactured by Arrow Reliance Inc., dba Darwin’s Natural Pet Products, over the period from October 17, 2016 to March 26, 2018. In each instance, the company recalled these products after being alerted to positive findings of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli O128, Salmonella and/or Listeria monocytogenes in samples of their raw pet food products.


Since July of 2016, Darwin's has recalled 13 different products!

TruPet LLC is "withdrawing" a single lot of its TruDog Boost Me Mighty Beef raw freeze-dried dog food toppers. This is the 2nd recall of 2018 for the company. Here are the full recall details:

Petful Website

-or-

TruPets letter to customers

DogFoodAdvisor Website

FDA Website

You might find this link to be of interest since it mentions where the food for both companies is manufactured.

This is another of those "silent recalls," while it's insignificant because it's only one lot the TruPets product, if it's your dog then it's not insignificant.

Al, any idea if these recent recalls are an additional or added to the original recall? I know VE had a recall, seen up towards the top of the page. It seems like every year about this time the freeze dried/raw dog food companies get a slew of recalls, salmonella is the culprit, but just seems odd, like if these were tested in the fall if the same issue would appear. Kinda stinks, I had been looking for a complete and balanced food that is more meat VE fit that bill, for when Miya goes off food, and now I wont buy it. Glad I decided to take my time on looking for a food, was going to place an order over the weekend and was going to place an order today, and now I wont. Sad

VE has had in the neighborhood of three different recall this year, already.

I also, find it interestingly odd that different companies producing the same type of food have the same problem at the same time ... scratch

DogFoodAdvisor was 'late' with their notification regarding both the TruPet and VE recalls.

I've updated the TruPet recall notice (Posted on 04/16) with information from FoodSafetyNews that states that both products were "manufactured in the same production facility,which is registered with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). Foods produced there carry Establishment No. V27506A or V27506. The production plant belongs to Carnivore Meat Co., which is based in Green Bay, WI."

I guess that explains the rationale for my comment in the previous message.

ETA: 04/20/2018 Updated again the two most recent recalls.

OC Raw Dog is recalling some of its products for 2 different reasons. One of the reasons is some fish are large enough to cause a risk of botulism. Wow, that's a new one for me. Please read the full recall details here:
