Recalled Pet Food Tracker - National Brands Updated 4-2

This is a summary (PDF file) of the pet foods recalled by 10 of the most commonly found National Brands ONLY (Alpo, Eukanuba, Gravy Train, Hills Prescription, Iams, Jerky Treats, Mighty Dog, Nutro, Pounce and Science Diet)

Other brands will be added soon... in the meantime make sure to check http://www.menufoods.com/recall/ for brands not yet listed here. There are almost 100 brands that have some food recalled, including store brands for Walmart and other national retail chains.

April 2, 2007 Changes

Foods Added

  • Gravy Train (3-31)
  • Jerky Treats (3-31)
  • Pounce cat treats (3-31)

Information Added/Changed:

  • Parent Company information has been added in each section, along with all brands owned by that company (not all brands listed have had food recalled)
  • Four of the brands (Alpo, Gravy Train, Jerky Treats, Pounce) have recalled certain dates only, I have listed each date/code affected.
This summary is 7 pages, and includes FDA contact information for each state on the last page.

Take this into stores to make sure products are not still on the shelves. If they are, call the FDA (phone numbers included). Then contact your local media. Let's get this stuff off the shelves.

**ADDED 4/3 9:06amMT: If the pdf file is garbled, previous posters have reported that downloading the new Adobe Version fixes the problem. (I'm typing this in Excel, then saving it as a pdf file, so it's a bit of trial and error right now.)

your list of recalled foods is useless- the pdf file is corrupt and cannot be read-why bother posting this -=it only adds to the frutration-how can i find out what pet foods have been recalled-everyone is talking about this but no one seems to have this information available-

I'm sorry you had problems with this. I've received emails from a lot of people that find this helpful.

I'll post a different PDF shortly, and hopefully you'll have better luck with that one.

kim,

I just wanted to thank you for taking the time provide this info for us. I've been posting all the recall updates on the message board I frequent, but there are just so many links now, it is really hard to keep up. I have posted a link to your tracker there, which everyone is thankful for. So again, thanks so much.

This list isnt useless and has been helpful to many. I am able to view it along with many others.

Something may be wrong on your end. You may see the list at
www.menufoods.com/recall

Menu Foods is now back in production! How can this happen? The facility should be SHUT DOWN!

Kim said...

Thanks for the positive comments - they're much appreciated!

I've added some links for those that can't view a pdf (MSN and WebTV box users) hopefully this will help until I can figure something else out.

Right now I'm working to get all the recalled products on one list...

Please do post here or email me if you have suggestions /comments /problems /feedback - I read everything and will respond as soon as I can.

Grand, MOST helpful information Kim, keep up the excellent work!

Megan said...

Thank you, Kim! Many of us appreciate your work in providing this info. The list of brand names, manufacturers, suppliers, and ingredients for all the other pet-foods NOT on the recall list is also a treasure! Their own answers provide good insight into the care or lack of concern they have on this issue and it gives me a place to start researching who I "might" trust to purchase from in the future.

The PDF worked just fine for me. Do you have the latest Adobe? Thank you so much for all your hard time consuming help Kim!!

Volunteers Needed! Get food off shelves...

howl911.com, itchmo.com, thepetfoodlist.com, petconnection.com, petfoodtracker.com and spockosbrain.com have joined together to ask for your help.
Update 6-10: Recalled food was purchased from a
California store on 5-29th – this stuff is still out there!
We need Volunteers to help get recalled food off store shelves. Read this post at Spocko’s Brain for instructions. Print a list (or two) on this site. Visit stores, then report safe stores here at Itchmo.com.

Printing Information:
1. Print the main FDA Pet Food Recall page http://www.fda.gov/oc/opacom/hottopics/petfood.html – this will be handy to show retailers who haven’t heard anything about the recall. (3 pages)

2. Print the list of 14 Major National Brands - it includes flavors and date information where applicable so you can tell if specific products for these brands have been recalled. The brands are: Alpo Prime Cuts, Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul, Doctors Foster and Smith, Eukanuba, Gravy Train, Hill’s Science Diet, Iams, Jerky Treats, Lick Your Chops, Mighty Dog Pouches, Natural Balance, Nutro, Pounce, Royal Canin. (It’s 7 pages and includes FDA contact information.)

3. Print the List of All Brands – it will remind you what products have been recalled - but it does not give you date and flavor information, there is just too much to put in one document. (7 pages, but the 7th page is links to more detailed information so you don’t need to print it)

If you want, and are going to a store that you know has store brands that have been recalled (such as Walmart), go to that recall information at the links on the summary or at the FDA site and print it out. Some of the information is formatted in ways that make it difficult to read (one of the main reasons for this site), but it’s better than nothing.

Note: The FDA is the official source for all recall information and recalled products. This is an unofficial volunteer effort to help get the word out and get recalled foods off of shelves. We’re doing the best we can but can’t guarantee these lists are completely accurate. Again, here is the official recall site: http://www.fda.gov/oc/opacom/hottopics/petfood.html
