Dog/Cat Food Recalls

I just received this notice in my e-mail today and I thought I would share it with all of you:

On November 25, 2011, select varieties of Iams dog and cat foods have been recalled by Price Chopper a major grocery store chain located in the northeastern region of the United States.

According to an announcement on the Price Chopper website, the recall has been instituted due to elevated aflatoxin levels found in the suspected products.

Iams Original with Chicken Cat Food
UPC 1901403915
Lot Number 12794177D3
Size 6.8 lbs.

Iams Original with Chicken Cat Food
UPC 1901410504
Lot Number 12794177I5
Size 4 lbs.

Iams Lamb Meal with Rice Dog Food
UPC 1901403735
Lot Number 12794177J4
Size 15 lbs.

Unfortunately, we’re unable to confirm this recall on the Iams Company website — or with the Food and Drug Administration.

If further information becomes available, this article will be updated to reflect any changes. Here is the link to where this information came from.

If you are wondering what aflatoxin is, there is an interesting, yet scary article by Cornell University explaining what the harmful toxin is.

UPDATE: AS OF 4pm EST, PRICE CHOPPER MYSTERIOUSLY REMOVED THE RECALL NOTICE ON ITS WEBSITE.  I GUESS IT NO LONGER IS RECALLING IAMS FOOD.  HOPE THAT ALLEVIATES SOME FEARS.

THE BLUE BUFFALO RECALL IS STILL VALID.  There is a second recall from the FDA for some Blue Buffalo food.  Here is the link to the information for you to cross reference on your bags of food from Blue Buffalo.

I just wanted to make my readers aware of the recalls.  Don’t panic, if you feed these foods, just watch your fur baby for the next couple days to make sure they are all right and stop feeding this food and find something else to feed them.  If you are looking for quality food, Dog food advisor is a great site to help you choose the best food available for your fur baby.

You too can receive alerts in your e-mail when dog food is recalled.  Just go to this link  and type in your e-mail address and anytime food is recalled, you will get an e-mail.  I have been signed up for a year, and I do not get any spam from it, and they are very quick to put out the information when they receive it.

I hope that this information helps and that everyone’s fur babies are happy and healthy!
