Exclamation Pet Food Re-Call

This pet food re-call has been making news on all the other groups. Nothing has been mentioned here. So I thought I would let you know.

$60 Million of pet food has been re-call.

I have been following this recall for 2 days. They now have a list of the recalled cat and dog food on their website. It's really funny that the 3 supposed best foods - Iams, Eukanuba and Science Diet - are on the list. Also, Nutro brand is on the list as well as many others. Maybe that's why Kodi stopped eating Nutro? Everyone please check it out.

Is this just the canned/wet Iams or is the dry Iams also contaminted? I'm feeding her Iams Smart puppy and Caser wet puppy food, but the Cesar wasn't on the list (she really LOVES this one!! She could eat it all day long if I let her! lol)

Kara, I think they said canned food, but I would check it our further. By the way, my two love Little Cesar. Vet said it was like feeding them cake. So I mix it with a better food, or sometimes cooked chicken, turkey or beef.

Debbie and Irnfit,
Thanks for posting that information. That is a long list of brands of animal food.

Thanks. Here's the nutritional information I found on Cesar Puppy:

Metabolizable Energy:
Approximately 100 kcals per 3.5 oz. (100 g) tray

Guaranteed Analysis:
Crude Protein, Min 9%
Crude Fat, Min 8%
Crude Fiber, Max 1%
Moisture, Max 80%

That doesn't seem too terribly bad, does it? How many calories per day does a 3 lb puppy need? I've been feeding her half a tray at lunch and the rest at dinner.....she won't touch the dry Iams with that in her bowl, but I'm giving her the dry Iams in the morning and she's only eating a little bit, with small portions of treats throughout the day (she's been SOOO very good!) Do they not have to list exact amount of fats on dog food? I'm a little confused by the Minumun 8% fat?? Gosh, that could really be a play on numbers!!!

hugs,
Kara

I've seen the recall, but neither my cats, nor my dogs are on any of those foods. Cats eat perscription diet something SO (for their urniary tract health) and all my dogs are now on Evo and I add in a little bit of human beef/chickn or whatever we have leftover. I just ground it up and sprinkle on the food. The poodles just clean their plates right up, but Bugsy is really picky...sigh.

Kara - I have no idea how many calories the little puppy needs, I just go by the guidelines on the food. I make adjustments depending on how much I add to the food, how well the puppy ate at previous feeding, etc. I also regularly weigh him to make sure he is gaining correctly. I've never fed Little Cesar (never use supermaket dog food) and am not fond of Iams either. Have you checked into other puppy food?

Hi
I think you should check because it was both wet and dry food - Dog food cat food .
A lot of the popular brands were named including Iams and Ekanuba .
You do not want to take a chance . Dogs do not do well with kidney failure ..
It is very scary to me .
It is supposed to be a gluten but they are not sure ..

All the research that I did indicated that it was only the wet cat & dog foods, in cans or pouches, that were meat with gravy. 'All the online stuff I read & newspaper articles all said wet only. Please tell me where you read dry food. Logan eats Nutro so now I am a little concerned, although I also thought that I read it was related to the wheat product, and his Nutra is 'Wheat Free.

Kara, I had to mix Cesar in with Houston's food too. That is too funny. LOL Hope Gucci is doing well.
