Default Kroger pet food recall

Kroger has issued a recall for these brands of dog and cat food sold in their stores in 19 states (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia) :: Pet Pride, Old Yeller, and Kroger Value.
Additionally, consumers in Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska should beware of these brands sold in Baker’s, Dillons, Food 4 Less, Gerbes, Hilander, Jay C, Owen’s, Pay Less, and Scott’s stores.
The foods may contain aflatoxin:
"Aflatoxins are among the most potent toxic substances that occur naturally, according to International Crops Research Institute. The substances are a group of related mycotoxins produced by the fungi Aspergillus flavus and A. parasiticus on corn and other crops. Corn is typically the first or second ingredient in many pet foods. Ingestion of aflatoxins by cats and dogs can cause bloody diarrhea, vomiting, lethargy, loss of appetite, jaundice, and severe liver damage."

moral of the story: stop buying crap food loaded with corn and you won't have to worry about corn fungus

You should always watch the food your dog intakes. Relative influence are more reliable than advertisements because relatives or friends will not lie to you.
