Pet Food Recall

Posted on: August 16th, 2013 by admin

For a complete list of affected lot numbers, please visit the Procter and Gamble website

Direct from P&G website:

“CINCINNATI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) has voluntarily recalled specific lots of dry pet food because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. These lots were distributed in the United States and represent roughly one-tenth of one percent (0.1%) of annual production. No Salmonella-related illnesses have been reported to date in association with these product lots.

Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

This issue is limited to the specific dry pet food lot codes listed below. This affects roughly one-tenth of one percent (0.1%) of total annual production. The affected product was distributed to select retailers across the United States. These products were made during a 10-day window at a single manufacturing site. P&G’s routine testing determined that some products made during this timeframe have the potential for Salmonella contamination. As a precautionary measure, P&G is recalling the potentially impacted products made during this timeframe. No other dry dog food, dry cat food, dog or cat canned wet food, biscuits/treats or supplements are affected by this announcement.

P&G is retrieving these products as a precautionary measure. Consumers who purchased a product listed below should stop using the product and discard it and contact P&G toll-free at 800-208-0172 (Monday – Friday, 9 AM to 6 PM ET), or via website at or Media Contact: Jason Taylor, 513-622-1111.”

Recall for Canyon Creek and Waggin’ Train

Posted on: January 10th, 2013 by admin
• Nestlé Purina and Waggin’ Train, LLC have decided to voluntarily withdraw Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treats sold in the United States until further notice. 
• The Company is taking this action after learning on Jan. 7 that the New York State Department    of Agriculture & Markets found trace amounts of antibiotic residue in samples of Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch chicken jerky products.  These antibiotics are approved for use in poultry in China, but are not among those approved in the U.S.  Antibiotics are commonly used globally, including in the United States, when raising animals fit for human consumption.  The New York State authorities initially requested that the Company remove Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch chicken jerky treats from retail locations in the state of New York, which the Company agreed to do.  In addition, because of the differences in U.S. and Chinese regulations, Nestlé Purina elected to conduct a nationwide voluntary withdrawal.
• The trace amounts of antibiotic residue (in the parts-­‐per-­‐billion range) do not pose a health or pet safety risk.  However, these regulatory inconsistencies among countries resulted in the antibiotic residue being considered technical adulteration in the United States. 
• No other Purina treats or pet food products are affected by this withdrawal.  In addition, Canyon Creek Ranch dog and cat foods, which are manufactured in the U.S., are not included in this withdrawal.

For more information or to request a refund, visit or call 1-­ 800‐982‐0704.
