Any update on the food recall?

Our question this week was:

I have three cats and feed them both dry and wet food. I have not heard anymore about cat food recall. I check the web sites but there is only old information. Is there still food I should be watching out for or is the problem taken care of?

Answer

Hi – thanks for your email Melissa. You asked about the food recall and if there have been any updates. You are right – there has been very little in the press about the recalls since last summer (2007).

I did look at the updated list on the FDA site which I think is the most complete. They update it as needed – it was last updated with new foods about 3 weeks ago. I don't think it hurts to look at it periodically to make sure anything you are feeding is not on the list. There have not been any BIG issues for a while. If there are – I'll let you know. Make sure you sign up for my newsletter as I send out any alerts as needed.

For information or an updated list, call 1-866-895-2708 or go to http://www.fda.gov/ora/fed_state/recalls/Recall.xls

An article that might be interesting is the history of the recall - Pet Food Recall - Food Causing Death: Update from Dr. Debra.

Best of luck!
