On our Caturday post I provided information on the latest pet food recall. Today, that list has expanded. Wellness Pet Food has made an announcement:
Tewksbury, Mass. (May 4, 2012) – WellPet LLC announced a voluntary recall of one recipe of Wellness® dry dog food after being notified by Diamond Pet Foods regarding the presence of Salmonella in Diamond’s Gaston, South Carolina facility.
You can read more about it here.
I will update as necessary. Keep your pets safe.

Here’s a shout out to anyone in the Loveland, CO area. There is a small recall that may have an effect on you. Please take care.

We will try to keep all our pet people notified of any recalls. My apologies for the delay on this one. We had a major computer problem that took us a couple of days to fix. Since our pets (and probably yours) are more than animals, but full-fledged members of the family, it’s a subject that is important to us.
We had friends who lost cats and dogs during the Melamine Pet Food Recall of 2007. That was a truly horrifying event and we hope to never see it’s like again. However, given that we can’t even keep human food production clean (Eggs anyone?), we won’t hold our breath. At best, we can remain vigilant and do our best to protect our pets.
