A composite of two different Canidae Dry Dog foods has tested positive for acetaminophen in tests done by Expertox. The food was sent in by a pet owner - samples from opened bags were sent to Expertox in ziploc bags. Additional tests on samples from sealed bags are expected to be done shortly. A copy of the test results can be found at http://www.petfoodrecallfacts.com/lab.html.
The two foods are:
Canidae All Life Stages Dry Dog Food
RM 6/7/07, use by 6/7/08
Canidae (All Life Stages) Lamb and Rice Formula Dry Dog Food
RM 6/6/07, use by 6/6/08
Both bags were purchased in early July, 2007. It is not known at this time whether one or both of these foods contain acetaminophen.
A total of 6 NON-recalled pet foods that we know about have tested positive for acetaminophen in tests done by Expertox, they include:
- Innova Dry Dog Food
- Hills Science Diet Light Adult Dry Cat Food
- Hills Science Diet Sensitive Stomach Dry Cat Food
- Pet Pride Turkey & Giblets Canned Cat Food
- Another non-recalled Dry Dog Food also tested positive for Acetaminophen, that company has NOT gone public with this information. (An earlier post on that is here)
