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
March 26, 2019 — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is cautioning pet owners not to feed their pets 3 lots of Darwin’s Natural Pet Products raw dog food after samples from these lots tested positive for Salmonella.
The codes for each product affected are listed in the second group of numbers found just below the barcode on the package.
Here are the affected products:
These products are manufactured by Arrow Reliance Inc., doing business as Darwin’s Natural Pet Products.
They are sold online direct to consumers.
The FDA is issuing this alert because the affected lots of Darwin’s raw dog food represent a serious threat to human and animal health.
They are are considered adulterated under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act because they contain Salmonella bacteria.
If you have any of the affected Darwin’s Natural Pet Products in your possession, stop feeding it to your pets.
Discard the product in a secure container where other animals, including wildlife, cannot access it.
Consumers who have had the affected products in their homes should clean refrigerators and freezers where they were stored.
Clean and disinfect all bowls, utensils, food prep surfaces, pet bedding, toys, floors, and any other surfaces that the food or pet may have had contact with.
Clean up the pet’s feces in yards or parks where people or other animals may become exposed.
Consumers should thoroughly wash their hands after handling the recalled product or cleaning up potentially contaminated items and surfaces.
