Pet Food Recall

Pet owners across the country have been worried about a recent recall on a surprising number of both dog and cat foods. The reason for the recall? 10 animals died from kidney failure and unknown numbers have suffered from severe kidney illness after eating the affected food.

The initial recalled brands were announced early yesterday, but brands such as Eukanuba, Iams and Purina have added several of their own brands to the recall for added precaution.

How to know if your pet food is safe? First, all recalled foods are "wet" foods sold in cans or pouches. Switching to dry kibble should help avoid the recalled foods. Second, check out the links below and visit the extended links for detail on the specific foods that are part of the recall and have now been pulled from store shelves.
