    Pet food recall

    All dry dog and cat food products manufactured under the Vets Choice and Royal Canin brands in South Africa have been recalled, manufacturer Royal Canin South Africa said on Monday.

    "It appears from tests carried out since April 10, both in South Africa and overseas, that a batch of raw material received by Royal Canin SA from a third-party supplier may have been contaminated," Royal Canin SA's MD, Gregory Watine, said in a statement.

    "Tests are continuing in order to determine the precise contaminant. The results are expected by the end of the week," he said.

    Only products manufactured between March 8 and April 11 will be recalled, said Watine.

    He urged pet owners to check the date of manufacture and country of origin on all Royal Canin products and return the recalled products to the vet where it was bought.

    Whatever the problem is, it causes acute renal failure.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    I was pretty relieved that we were not using any of these foods. Losing a pet suddenly for any reason is devastating.

    Reading the article, it seems there has been something of a series of problems with dog and cat food - all causing acute renal failure. A problem with a common supplier of an ingredient?

    There seems to be a pattern emerging here.

    There seems to be more and more of a problem everyday. I've started looking for recipes for homemade dog food so that I won't have to take a chance on feeeding her anything that is tainted. I've listed a few recipes on my blog. Try them out. Homemade Dog Food Recipes
