Cargill Dog Food Recall Due to Aflatoxin

We received notice today that Cargill has recalled some dog food. Their recall information is pasted below. Read their statement for more info.

As an FYI, as soon as we receive notices about recalls, we post them on our Facebook page, AVMAvets Twitter feed, and AVMARecallWatch Twitter feed. The info is also posted on our website in the Pet Food Recalls and Alerts section.

Cargill has announced a voluntary recall of the following products in 13 states and 2 territories:  Kansas, Missouri, Northeast Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Western Kentucky, Southeast Indiana, Southern Illinois, Hawaii, and limited areas of Florida, California Guam, and the Virgin Islands. The products may contain higher-than-acceptable levels of aflatoxin, a substance found widely in nature as a result of mold. We are not aware of any dogs getting sick, but are recalling the dry dog food as a precaution.

  3. Why are recalls only voluntary ? Safeway lowers the price by 4 dollars. I
    Bought Iams puppy chow, June 2012 exp. Date my dog sniffed and
    Ran from it! I am now resisting the urge to ignore the right thing
    To do! Take the time to take it back and say Shame on Safeway .
    We expect fresh food at the super market not lowered prices on expired food on the day of expiration!
