If this is from Communist China: Slick Willie should have to eat it until he vomits due to the fact that he made Communist China "the Most Favored Trade Status" after hauling the USA under the WTO-GaTT and NAFTA whereby we no longer are independant but must import everything so we are guarateed to have overflowing trash heeps while we are poisoned...what a bunch of TRAITORS WITHIN.

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)!

These basta$Eds manufacture for Natural Balance, Costco, etc.  They were one of the ones that had the melamine.  They had issues last year.  Owned by a couple of brothers in South Carolina.  WHEN IS THE FDA GOING TO SHUT THEM DOWN????????????

Just shut this place down for good. How many recalls does it have to take?
