Pet Food Recalls

Pet food recalls inform you of hazardous contamination and other dangerous issues with pet foods.

When there are pet food recalls it is due to dangers and risks, including the potential risks of severe sickness and more. If a recalled pet food has been consumed by your dog or cat, contact your Veterinarian immediately.

Our list includes FDA recalls, either voluntary or forced.

Note: Depending on the date of your visit to this list, some recalls may have been "Terminated". A Terminated Recall is a recall where the FDA has determined that all reasonable efforts have been made to remove or correct the product violation.
