Pet Food Recall: Royal Canin Adds to Dry Cat & Dog Food to Recall List
Pet food recall sees another batch of dry dog and cat food added to the recall list. It simply will not end. Pet lovers are still scrambling trying to figure out exactly what is safe to feed their beloved four legged friends and the recall list continues to grow as more research is done by companies to make certain their food is safe for consumption. This time it is more food from Royal Canin.
The company announces on it's website that more food is to be recalled. In a letter to consumers the company says that it deeply regrets the concern and anxiety this update will cause both our loyal customers and the pet community.
The letter reads - Dear Pet owners:
Based on our ongoing investigation and extensive review of our manufacturing and quality assurances testing procedures, we recently announced a voluntary recall of eight Sensible Choice dry dog food products and seven Kasco dry dog and cat food products due to tainted Chinese rice protein concentrate.
A very limited number of Sensible Choice and Kasco products in this recent recall tested positive for trace levels of a melamine derivative, so we are voluntarily recalling the following products out of an abundance of caution. We have received no confirmed cases of melamine related illness in pets eating Sensible Choice and Kasco products affected by this recall.
The full list is here. Based on today’s announcement, pet owners should stop feeding their pets the eight Sensible Choice dry dog food products and seven Kasco dry dog and dry cat food products listed immediately. Pet owners should consult with a veterinarian if they are concerned about the health of their pet.
