Serious business ...

Hi, everybody.  It's a rainy Tuesday morning here in the lesser-known Bay Area, and I've got some serious news to report. 

We've just been made aware that Wellness has issued a recall on some of their canned cat foods.  Though the cat kids here eat a prey model raw diet, we know lots of our blogosphere kitty friends eat canned food, so we wanted to get this information out there right away. 
So anyone feeding Wellness, please check your cans.  The affected cans can be any flavor and size and will have best by dates from 14APR13 through 30SEP13.  An additional lot of Wellness Canned Chicken & Herring (all sizes) with best by dates of 10NOV13 through 17NOV13 are also affected.  The possible problem with these cans is inadequate levels of thiamine.

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Thanks for posting this as well!
I got the email notification and posted it also.
I used to feed Cody Wellness before his allergies began...it surprised me to see them involved in a recall (I used to purchase mine at Whole Foods)
The more of us that get the word out, the better! Thank you!

Caren, not sure if you know this or not, but Wellness has merged with Eagle Pack, so it is not its own entity anymore. These mergers rarely spell good news for anyone but the stock holders, unfortunately. Just about killed me when Natura Foods (California Naturals, Innova, Evo) was bought out by Proctor & Gamble.

Bottom line is I just don't have much confidence in the pet food industry, which is why I switched all the kids here to PMR.
