The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) is advising pet owners and veterinarians of two new pet food recalls:

  • Mars Petcare US http://www.marspetcare.com/index.html, has recalled Krasdale Gravy dry dog food and Red Flannel Large Breed Adult Formula dry dog food due to the potential that they are contaminated with Salmonella;

  • Wal-Mart http://www.walmartfacts.com/articles/5241.aspx, has pulled Chicken Jerky Strips manufactured by Import-Pingyang Pet Products Co. and Chicken Jerky manufactured by Shanghai Bestro Trading because they tested positive for melamine.

    Mars Petcare announced the voluntary recall on August 21, 2007, of select 50 pound bags of Red Flannel dog food sold in Pennsylvania and 5 pound bags of Krasdale Gravy dry dog food sold in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The Krasdale food has the UPC Code 7513062596 and a best by date of July 16 & 17, 2008. Only three bags of the Red Flannel food were sold, and only one is currently unaccounted for, with a UPC code of 4286900062.

    Wal-Mart announced on August 22, 2007 that it pulled Chicken Jerky Strips and Chicken Jerky on July 26, 2007 off store shelves and conducted multiple tests on the treats based on a small number of complaints received. Wal-Mart reports that these tests showed the treats were contaminated with melamine.

    The Shanghai Bestro Trading Chicken Jerky has a UPC code of 0087784900006. Wal-Mart is offering full refunds on the recalled treats, and has also placed a computer block on these products on all Wal-Mart cash registers to prevent customers from purchasing these treats.
