Another Dog Food Recall – Nature’s Variety

I received this in my e-mail and thought I would share:

July, 12, 2012 — Nature’s Variety has announced a voluntary recall of its Prairie Beef Meal and Barley Medley Kibble for Dogs due to an unusual odor that may develop over time.

According to the company, the product is “not contaminated in any way”.

However, some recipes are not remaining fresh for their expected shelf life.

Nature’s Variety CEO, Reed Howlett, explained…

“We’ve found that some bags of Prairie Beef Meal & Barley Medley Kibble for Dogs have an off-odor smell.
