Ive never even heard of it,we feed our cats purina cat chow,it is kind of basic but don't recall it ever being recalled.I prefer to feed them chicken breast for meat,the canned stuff has to be as nasty as it smells,they are also fond of meatballs,kind of hard to eat spaghetti ,they know there are meatballs in it. Most meats are only a couple dollars a lb,you can feed your cats well with mostly dry and your homemade for meat treats and be safe and keep them healthy.
I don't worry about these recalls anymore as I make my own cat and dog food. My three felines get raw chicken, chicken livers and gizzards with egg yolks, bone meal, Taurine, B vitamins, salmon oil. No carbs - cats do not have the digestive enzymes to break down carbs! They are true carnivores. My three Japanese chins get cooked beef, beef liver, beef heart, lamb and chicken and veggies and whole grain rice or oatmeal (very little) bone meal, vitamins, eggs and salmon oil. No health issues with the dogs and one of the cats has not had a urinary tract infection since the switch to raw. We have one young cat that will be the first started on a raw diet and nothing but - so it will be interesting to see how she does. Proof is in the pudding (or home made pet food)!
Just shut this place down for good. How many recalls does it have to take?
