Unfortunately, pet food recalls are a regular fact of life these days. From mold and bacteria (like Salmonella), to toxic substances and actual objects in the food (like metal pieces), the list of contaminants is nearly endless. And while some may just cause an upset stomach, others may be life threatening!
There are three good web sites for current pet food recall information (as well as our list below): The FDA Recalls and Withdrawals site and Pet Food Industry.com, and Dogfoodadvisor.com (and all three allow you to sign up for recall alerts).
Find current dog food recall and cat food recall and withdrawal information posted from the FDA and petfoodindustry.com are below (the petfoodindustry.com list is an addition to the FDA list). We will try to keep this page updated regularly, but please let us know if you hear of anything not listed!
Current Pet Food Recalls and Withdrawals
June 16, 2017 - United Pet Group, a division of Spectrum Brands, Inc. is voluntarily expanding its recall of multiple brands of packages of rawhide dog chew products to include our retail partners’ private label brands. The recall involves the brands and products described below.
United Pet Group previously initiated a voluntary recall of its branded products on 6/10/17 which included the following brands: American Beefhide, Digest-eeze, and Healthy Hide (including Healthy Hide – Good -n- Fun and Healthy Hide – Good -n- Fit).
The recall was initiated after United Pet Group identified that certain of its rawhide chew manufacturing facilities located in Mexico and Colombia, as well as one of its suppliers in Brazil, were using a quaternary ammonium compound mixture as a processing aid in the manufacturing of rawhide chews. The compound is an anti-microbial chemical that is approved for cleaning food processing equipment, but it has not been approved in the U.S. as a processing aid in the production of rawhide chews for dogs.
If you have these products, please contact the United Pet Group consumer affairs team at 1-855-215-4962 between the hours of 8:00 AM – 11:00 PM Eastern Standard Time for a refund. Or visit: fda.gov/dafesty/recalls...
