Dog Owners, Check Your Pup’s Food! Three More Recalls Have Been Issued!

Three new recalls are effecting dog food across the country, bringing the number of recalls to 22 this year (as opposed to 10 in 2014), a depressing and frightening statistic.

The latest food to be recalled is OC Raw Dog of California. The company recalled 640 pounds of its Chicken, Fish & Produce Raw Frozen Canine Formulation due to salmonella contamination.The 6.5-pound Doggie Dozen Patties, 4-pound Doggie Sliders and 3-pound Meaty Rox with the lot number 1819, and use by date of 05/05/16 are all being recalled, although they were only distributed in Colorado, Vermont, and Pennsylvania through independent and specialty retailers. Make sure to check your food, and contact OC Raw Dog if you purchased potentially contaminated food!

The second recall is for Good n’ Fun Beefhide Chicken Sticks, which were sold at Dollar General and Dollar Tree stores across the country. These treats are also potential salmonella risks. While no illnesses have been reported (yet), if you have a package of the treats stamped with Lot #AO15010; expiration date of 03/2018; UPC code 0 91093 82247 1, make sure to get rid of them!

While salmonella tends to be the reason for the majority of recalls recently,Dingo Chip Twists Chicken in the Middle dog treats are being recalled after amantadine was found to potentially be contaminating the treats. Amantadine is an antiviral medication meant for humans, and is absolutely not approved for use in pet foods. The treats were made in China, and sold in Washington, California, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin. Make sure to keep an eye out!

If you have purchased any of these products, you can contact the FDA to get more information on what to do with potentially contaminated items.

To report a pet food complaint, you can go to the FDA’s pet food complaint page, and you can also contact a Consumer Complaint Coordinator.

As we head towards the end of the year, we can only hope that the staggering number of recalls doesn’t have any new additions. However, if there are any more complaints, we will make sure to update you! Stay safe!
