 Recalls & Other Information


Shortly after Unleashed was founded, in 2007, there was probably the biggest pet food recall in history.  I gathered lots of information during that time about the many recalls and put them here on my website.  Although I have not updated it much since, I just couldn't delete this information.  It is still important not to forget what happened, the many lives that were lost, and to not let history repeat itself. 


We do stay on top of current recalls and assure you that we continue to carry only the safest pet foods available.  If any of our products are ever cause for concern, we will take action. 


If you have any questions about past or current recalls, please email us: info@unleashedmutt.com.

 

There is also some interesting information about animal testing and some other news that I posted back in 2007 that I think is still useful and I have left here as well.

Pet Owners Worry About Food Recall

 

 

FDA expects pet food death toll to rise

By Julie Schmit and Elizabeth Weise, USA TODAY

"Federal regulators said Monday that contaminated wheat gluten is the most likely source of deaths in a large pet food recall, and that it is investigating whether other pet food makers got wheat gluten from the same supplier.
The Food and Drug Administration also said that it expects the number of deaths linked to the food to grow . . ."
(None of Unleashed's products contain wheat!)

If the recall isn't bad enough, you should see how "Menu Foods" operates on a daily basis!

Beware, this investigative report includes debarking the dogs that the foods are tested on, and many euthanizations.

(P.S. This article was linked on my site before the latest issues with Menu foods- I just moved it here to add to the current articles.) 

 

Unleashed carries Canidae pet foods.  Canidae states the following at www.canidae.com:

 

"Industry Recall Update for May 18, 2007

In light of the unfortunate current pet food recall by other respectable pet food manufacturers, our phone lines and emails are tied up with concerned customers. We want you, our valued customer, to feel secure with the continued use of our products. CANIDAE® Pet Foods in no way is affected by the recall, nor are any of our products produced in any of the recalled production facilities.

It appears from the latest news within our industry that all recalls are from Glutens imported from China, a protein source that is extracted from Wheat or Rice. The wheat or rice is not the issue, but the glutens extracted, stored, and then imported from China. Again, CANIDAE does not use Glutens in any form, and we do not import any ingredients from China or overseas.

CANIDAE Pet Foods also does not produce cuts and gravies, pouches, and does not contain corn, wheat, soybeans, or Glutens in any of our products or formulations, and all ingredients are of US origin, meaning proudly raised and grown in the USA.

Our heartfelt concerns go out to all those affected by the recall.

CANIDAE Pet Foods"

(We have found cow and lamb ears to be safer and healthier in many ways.)**
