    I don't have the bag, so why don't they say if it's puppy, adult, senior lamb and rice ...........so frustrating will just to something more reputable.

    This was the same thing I was thinking. I guess to be careful I need to throw out the dry and can food I just bought. But then maybe I should take my receipt and copy of this recall back to where I bought it from and ask for my money back.

    you should be able to get a full refund if the items are the one's on recall.

    First off they say it's ONLY the dry dog food...no cans are considered. Secondly, it's adult food as shown in the images above. Again, they leave a toll free number you can call if you have any concerns. No need to over-worry as this is a voluntary recall for possible contamination. They are taking the precautions for you by notifying you. Just call and speak with someone there if you are concerned about what kind you have / don't have.

    Is it just me or shouldn't they have tested the food befor sending it out. Like this happens way to much from pet food company's and the give the same response ever time, "We are sooooo sorry here at ______." Sorry doesn't pay the vet bills that THERE food causes or even worst some cases have been death.

    yep, the last time there were animal deaths that made the news it was IAMS.....

    My 2 dogs have just about eaten the whole bag and they just keep coming back for more. I'm going to need to buy more food real soon and I hate to start them on something different again. Changing food on puppies all the time isn't good for their stomach's.

    please don't use iams or eukanuba, there are MUCH BETTER whole food products out there that aren't made by proctor and gamble (who also do animal testing...) Wellness brand is a really good food I use :)
