PetFood Recall List
Pet owners often wonder about pet food recalls.
How do I know what foods have been recalled ? Where can I find a complete petfood recall list and how can I ensure the safety of my pet's food?
There are literally hundreds of pet food brands that have been recalled since March 2007 (the date that the FDA's list begins). Iams, Science Diet and Eukanuba are just a few of the popular brand names that appear on the list. It is important to note that once a food item is listed, it remains on the FDA's recall chart even if no new recalls have been made recently so in my opinion you should still avoid it.
Check out a few recent pet food recalls listed below to help you make healthy decisions for your pet. Stay up-to-date on pet foods and treats to avoid by regularly reviewing the list of recalled pet products.
