Default Yet another food recall

Dear Fellow Dog Owner,

Because you asked to be notified, I'm sending you this special alert.

On August 30, 2013, Purina PetCare Company announced it is recalling certain lots of its Purina One Beyond Dog Food due to possible contamination with Salmonella bacteria.

To learn which products are affected, please visit the following link:

Please be sure to share the news of this alert with other pet owners.

Jeesh...


I hope people do pay attention to these. Salmonella isn't that dangerous to dogs because they digest food quicker than humans. The food being contaminated, however, means that when you handle it you might become contaminated and get salmonella.



What is with all of these recalls for salmonella contamination? You would think that after 5-10 of these they would have some kind of protocol in place to deal with it OTHER THAN a recall.

Still ether way Salmonella is a nasty illness for vunerable dogs such as elderly dogs and pups and people every other day there seems to be more of these recalls and yes you would think extra precautions would be put in place to minimise these out breaks

Sorry for people who buy the chicken variety of this food. So glad that Dunny eats the lamb version.

For what problems are non-chicken based dog foods usually recalled?

I think usually the same thing. At that point it's not a worry of the chicken having been contaminated, but the different kind of food came into contact with surfaces that the contaminated food contacted.

What's good is that I've seen ONLY salmonella related recalls that are being done because of actual evidence rather than a recall being done because of some chemical contamination. I remember seeing the latter many times, but not as of late.

Edit: In fact, I was just looking at the recalls and almost all of them are salmonella based. There were a couple that were based on some kind of chemical being used that is not approved in the US, but mostly salmonella based...

For our newer members, you may want to check out the threads on dog nutrition and kibble ratings. There's some really good material in both.
