Our question this week was:

Dr. Debra – are there any new food recalls? I heard something about Nutra Nuggets?

Regards, Dave Burns


Answer

Hi – thanks for your email. New food recalls have been very few. I did a couple press releases that I'll include below. They are from the FDA website.

Nutra Nuggets 40 Lb. Lamb Meal and Rice Formula recalled due to cross contamination

Diamond Pet Foods announced that it has recalled a limited quantity of Nutra Nuggets 40 Lb. Lamb Meal and Rice Formula because of confirmatory testing that indicates the product may include traces of melamine resulting from cross contamination during manufacturing. No animal deaths have been reported.

This action is limited to Nutra Nuggets 40 Lb. Lamb Meal and Rice Formula with production codes of NLR0404A2SL, "Best Before" Oct. 9, 2008, and NLR0404B2SL, "Best Before" Oct. 9, 2008. The recalled product was manufactured at the company's Lathrop, Calif. facility. No other Nutra Nuggets products are affected.

Costco dog food product recalled because of possible melamine contamination

Kirkland, Washington-based Costco has announced the recall of one of its pet foods after the manufacturer announced that it contained rice protein that may be contaminated.

American Nutrition says the rice protein concentrate in Costco's "Kirkland Signature Lamb and Rice canned dog food" may contain melamine, an industrial chemical that was found in other recently recalled pet foods.


The other recall was

Royal Canin USA has announced the nationwide recall of eight Sensible Choice dry dog food products and seven Kasco dry dog and cat food products.

This announcement is based on the identification of trace amounts of a melamine derivative in a tainted Chinese ingredient labelled as rice protein concentrate, which was provided to the company by domestic ingredient supplier Cereal Byproducts, headquartered in Illinois.
