FDA Issued:Pet Food Recall

Mykelti and Ranger have a special announcement about a pet food recall!

This post is for all of my readers who have pets. The FDA has issued an updated alert on the list of pet foods included on the current recall, due to potential Salmonella. If you feed your pet one of these brands, check the bag and and see if it matches the information listed in the link below.:

Recalls, Market Withdrawals, & Safety Alerts UPDATED: CORRECT PRODUCTION CODE INFORMATION Diamond Pet Foods Expands Voluntary Recall of Dry Pet Food Due to Potential Salmonella Contamination

Brands on the list include:
-Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul
-Country Value
-Diamond Naturals
-Premium Edge
-Taste of the Wild

***This recall is serious:In addition to reports of pets becoming ill and even dying of this, 14 humans (yes, humans!) have become ill as a result of handling/working around the contaminated foods.If you have a food on the recall list, please stop feeding it to your pet immediately and return it to the pet store you purchased it from.(Save all of the labeling information, expiration dates, and receipts).

If you need to switch your pet off of a recalled product, I highly recommend using Fromm. (They make food for both cats and dogs.) All products from the food to the packaging are made in the USA and thoroughly inspected. They have NEVER had a recall. If you are local, you can pick up Fromm at Hollywood Feed; if you live out of town, you can check their website for ordering information at: http://frommfamily.com/ . I've been feeding Fromm for several years now, and my animals have thrived on their products! The staff is also fantastic if you ever need to contact them! (They offer a free buyers card too; when you buy a certain amount of bags, you get one free. I've saved a lot of money with that little card!). Another great thing about higher quality, holisitic dog foods is that it doesn't take a ton of food to fill your dog up. Because you're not feeding your dog junk food (Beneful, Purina, etc) they require less food, so even though it is a little more expensive on the front in when you first purchase the bag, it actually winds up being less expensive in the long run and healthier because you aren't running through triple the amount of dog food just to keep your pet satisfied on the poor quality brands. The premium foods have more filling ingredients and aren't full of artifical junk that passes straight through your pets (literally!). This means a healhtier dog, more money in your wallet, less nastiness at pick up time, and a safer peace of mind knowing you can trust a reputable company with your pets food. Definitely check out Fromm! I trust them with my own pets food, and my readers who follow me all know that I only give mine the best!
