Food Recall only in the United States?
Our question this week was:
I have 5 dogs all eat nothing but Hills dog food,2 of them I have them on light dry diet the other 3 eat K9 W/D prescription food canned. I live in the U.K. and have become increasingly concerned about the food recall has the contaminated food spread to other countries or is it just a problem in America? I spoke to my supplier but nobody seems to know anything.
PLEASE HELP A VERY WORRIED DOG OWNER?

Hi – thanks for your email. I emailed Hills directly to ask if any foods distributed in the UK have been recalled. To my knowledge, there are none.
However, things are constantly being updated. I’d recommend looking at the recalled code to make sure none was manufactured outside of the UK and shipped in (thus manufactured at a contaminated plant).

Best of luck!
