Dog Food Recalls

Keeping our favorite furry friends happy & healthy is very important to Mr. Mutt & I. Our 5 babies (oh yes, they are truly our "kids") all have very unique personalities & keep Mr. Mutt & I in stitches year round. We know that all you pet parents out there feel the same way about your "kids" which is why I try to keep on top of recent Dog Food Recalls to alert you to potential problems your pups could encounter. Unfortunately, there are two to report:

The first is: Petrus Feed and Seed Stores, Inc. announced a voluntary recall of its dry dog food – 21% Protein Dog Food in 40 lb Petrus Feed bags. The product is being recalled because the product was manufactured with corn which tested above acceptable levels for Aflatoxin. The affected products were manufactured at Cargill’s manufacturing facility located in LeCompte, Louisiana between December 1, 2010 and December 1, 2011. The recall only applies 21% Dog Food, packaged in 40 lb Petrus Feed bags with the following packaging Date codes (lot numbers) 4K1011 through 4K1307. Updated lot numbers are 4K1011 through 4K1335.
