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!
