WHY ARE PET FOODS BEING RECALLED SO OFTEN?

Several times a day clients inquire about what to feed their pets. Should it be grain free, gluten free or a raw diet? It is becoming more difficult to discuss with clients about their pet’s nutritional requirements when national campaigns advertise data that has little or no basis in proper pet food nutrition.

There is a large profit margin in pet foods, so numerous companies with no experience or knowledge of pet nutrition have jumped on the pet food band wagon. The food they sell generally do not meet the American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) standards, nor was the food manufactured in their own facility. Instead, many foods are co-packed or have several different manufacturers with the label being done by the end-of -the-line company that sells it.

If the pet food bag states “distributed by” instead of  “manufactured by” or “manufactured for”, this informs the consumer the food was made somewhere else but the company is placing it’s label on the bag and selling it as their own.

Not all manufacturers of pet food have veterinarian nutritionists on staff, practice strict quality control, or conduct nutritional research.  There are numerous pet food companies that do co-packing from several manufacturers so when contamination occurs, multiple pet foods are involved. An example: Diamond Pet Foods, their plant caused the largest food recalled in history, with 30,000 tons of food contaminated with Salmonella. Diamond Pet Food distributes food under the labels of Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers Soul, Canidae, Kirkland, Solid Gold Wolf, Taste of the Wild, Premium Edge to name a few. To read about other food recalls, click here: http://petsloved.com/2015/02/26/pet-food-recall/

As veterinarians, we advise clients to be aware of the ingredients in the foods they chose for their pet. Unfortunately, regulatory agencies don’ require manufacturers to test their final product for actual content or Salmonella. So it is buyers beware. A recent article reported that 20 of 52 food that were PCR-tested for ingredients showed a discrepancy between the labeled ingredients and what was actually in the diet.  Chicken and Pork were the most common undeclared protein found in the diets. Another study found beef, corn and soy added to the diets and not listed in the ingredients. This can be a problem when clients are trying to avoid a potential food allergen for their pet.

Grain free diets have become the fad diet. Unfortunately, grain free does not mean hypoallergenic. There is no AAFCO definition of Grain free. Thus, it may have a different meaning from one manufacturer to another. Most clients are misinformed thinking that grains are not good for their pets digestion. The opposite is true. Though dogs are of the carnivore species, their eating habits are omnivores. So complex carbohydrates are actually needed for a well formed stool. Obesity is not from carbohydrates but from all the high fat diets on the market.

Raw diets are also a fad diet resulting from all pet food recalls. Clients began to fear commercial diets and decided to try making their own pet foods. Most of the Raw diet recipes were found to have nutritional imbalances. Safety risks for freezing and freezed-dried raw diets were found as freezing does not kill all pathogens. Of the studies regarding raw diets, Salmonella, Listeria, Campylobacter, E. Coli, Toxoplasma, Trichinella were some of the contaminates found in these diets.

So what brand of food should you feed your pet?

Pet food manufacturers falsely advertise their products are veterinarian-approved. Veterinarians do not approve labels or product, only state regulatory agencies can. The Association of American Feed Control Officials allow manufacturers to use the terms veterinarian-recommended or formulated. Food manufacturers who usually manufacture in house, employ board-certified veterinary nutritionists, publish nutritional research in veterinary journals, adhere to strict quality-control measures, actually feed their food via AAFCO feeding guidelines and provide complete nutritional analysis of their products are the pet foods veterinarian recommend. At our hospitals we recommend Royal Canin and Hills (Science Diet) Pet Food.

Food Recall — Eukanuba and Iams (P&G Brands)

P&G Voluntarily Recalls Limited Quantity of Dry Pet Food Due to Possible Health Risk

Contact
Consumer:
800-208-0172

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – August 14, 2013 – The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) has voluntarily recalled specific lots of dry pet food because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. These lots were distributed in the United States and represent roughly one-tenth of one percent (0.1%) of annual production. No Salmonella-related illnesses have been reported to date in association with these product lots.

Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

This issue is limited to the specific dry pet food lot codes listed below. This affects roughly one-tenth of one percent (0.1%) of total annual production. The affected product was distributed to select retailers across the United States. These products were made during a 10 day window at a single manufacturing site. P&G’s routine testing determined that some products made during this timeframe have the potential for Salmonella contamination. As a precautionary measure, P&G is recalling the potentially impacted products made during this timeframe. No other dry dog food, dry cat food, dog or cat canned wet food, biscuits/treats or supplements are affected by this announcement.

P&G is retrieving these products as a precautionary measure. Consumers who purchased a product listed below should stop using the product and discard it and contact P&G toll-free at 800-208-0172 (Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM EST), or via website at http://www.iams.com or http://www.eukanuba.com.

Good Treats

This week’s post will be short and sweet. The weather’s supposed to be fairly nice, so I’m hoping folks will be out enjoying a taste of spring. Take your dogs for a walk! 🙂

I spend a lot of time on the blog talking about what we shouldn’t do. This week, I’m focusing on some things you CAN do. In particular, I’m going to put together a list of treats that I think are OK for pets to have.

I’m giving everyone the benefit of the doubt as far as calorie control goes. Remember that if you’re treating, take a little kibble out of the bowl to make up for it.

Veggies

Carrots, celery, cucumber, green beans, corn, peas, lettuce
691px FrenchBeans

Fruits

Blueberries, strawberries, melon, apples, pears, oranges
Red Apple

Meats

Any meat given should be lean, cooked to allow for removing as much fat as possible, and unseasoned
Beef, chicken, pork, venison, turkey, rabbit, ostrich, duck, white fish
*Note for cat owners: I sometimes grill an extra chicken breast for my cat. I shred it up and give her a little bit each day as a treat. I make sure to give just the lean meat.
Grilled chicken

Starches

Potato, sweet potato, rice, rice cakes, plain breads, popcorn (plain/unbuttered)
Sweet potatoes

Commercial Treats

Generally these are all ok. Be sure to read ingredient lists fully. Choose treats made in the US when possible.

Chew Toys

Soft chewing toys are the way to go: Kongs, nylabones, etc. Always supervise chewing to make sure your pet enjoys the treat safely.
Dog kong toys

I have two final pieces of advice to share.
First: If you’re giving a new treat or food for the first time, give a SMALL amount. New things need to be tested out gradually and carefully to be sure they’re going to agree with your pet’s digestive system.
Second: Give ONE new thing at a time. This way you’ll know which items are a good fit for your pet.

PS: Special thanks to Alton Brown for the idea!

Treat Recall – Breeder’s Choice Active Care Biscuits (Healthy Dog)

The following product is included in the recall:

Breeder’s Choice, a Central Garden & Pet company, has issued a voluntary recall for a single batch of Active Care Biscuits-Healthy Dog Treats due to mold discovered in one of the lots of dog biscuits.

Product Code/SKU/ Material #: BCP-080

UPC Code: 0130104895

Size: 24 oz.

Product Name: Active Care Biscuits-Healthy Dog Treats

Best Before Code: 19/Dec/2013

Product and product lots that do not appear above have not been affected.

According to a release from the manufacturer, the mold seems to have occurred due to varying dryer temperature settings for drying biscuits. This exposed the recalled product to excess moisture and has since been remedied.

Pet owners who fed their pets the recalled biscuits should watch for symptoms that may develop. Common symptoms associated with mold exposure include gastrointestinal issues such as loose stool. At the time of this release, there have been no reports of human or pet illnesses associated with this recall.

For more information, call the Central Customer Care line at (866) 500-6286 or visit goactivedog.com.

Honest Kitchen Food Recall

Honest Kitchen has recalled some of its foods.

Please visit this link to get the full list of varieties and lots that are included in the recall.

Here is the press release:

Honest Kitchen Recall Announcement from Our President
February 21st, 2013 by The Honest Kitchen
Dear Honest Kitchen Customer,

I’m writing to inform you that today we are voluntarily recalling five lots of our Verve, Zeal and Thrive products, which were produced between August and November 2012 and sold nationwide in the US and Canada via retail stores, mail order and online after August 2012. We are taking this precautionary action after learning that one of our raw ingredients suppliers has recalled a batch of human-grade parsley that has the potential to contain Salmonella. The batch of parsley was shipped to us in 2012 and used in the five lots of finished Honest Kitchen products. We’ve included specific details about which lots are being recalled, directions on how you can obtain a full refund for the affected lots, and information on the potential effects of Salmonella in our official recall press release. View our FAQ page here.

At The Honest Kitchen, we are accountable for every pound of food that we produce and ultimately, when it comes to the way we do business, the buck stops with me. We are committed to always providing healthy, quality products that balance gentle production methods with a focus on safety and integrity, and along with my team, I have built our company over the last decade on the principles of honesty, transparency and openness.

We work closely with each of our suppliers to carefully source our human grade ingredients. Our finished products are made in a human food facility and held to the same high quality control standards as human food products. And, humans taste the products we make as part of our quality control and R&D processes.

As you may know, Salmonella can appear in many human foods, from pistachios to mangoes, but it trends particularly high in meats, eggs and leafy greens such as spinach, lettuce and herbs. To further protect you from the risks Salmonella can pose, we’re adding additional steps to our food safety program:
• All dehydrated leafy greens (parsley, basil, dandelion, spinach and alfalfa) will be steamed, to eliminate pathogens while maintaining our commitment to very gentle production that retains and protects the nutrients that nature provides.
• We will conduct additional tests for pathogens on all leafy greens when they arrive at our manufacturing facility.
• We are no longer purchasing any ingredients from the supplier that provided the parsley being recalled.

We are committed to continually evolving and adapting our procedures to prevent problems like this from occurring in the future.

If you have questions, concerns, or frustrations, please call our toll free number, 1-866-437-9729 or send an email to info@thehonestkitchen.com. Customer service representatives will be available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. PST to respond to inquiries.

I apologize for the inconvenience this situation has created and I promise that we will continue to operate our family business in a way that lives up to the high standards that you have always expected from us.

Another Look at Pet Obesity

Page21 blog entry3 overweight dogLens16286351 1291879852pix fat cat obese 33

Sometimes, the problem is obvious.

I spend a significant part of each appointment discussing body weight and feeding with owners. Whether it’s part of our food-centric Midwestern culture and climate, or a changed perspective on what a’healthy’ weight is, obesity in our pets is a dyed-in-the-wool killer. Years of life are sacrificed by way of ‘just a few treats.’ Believing that food is love is a dangerous misunderstanding.

I’ll call this as I see it. We are overfeeding our pets. We, as caretakers, are responsible for how much food a pet has access to, and we are failing them. We are killing them with food.

Here’s what you need to do: take a serious, honest look at your pets. Compare their body shape to the shapes and proportions that you see in the body condition scoring below. There’s an added image demonstrating how to actually put your hands on your pet to see if there’s too much fat cover over the ribcage. It’s an easy thing to do. Take a moment to touch your pets right now.

The question I nearly always get after owners blame other family members for overfeeding is, “Well, how much SHOULD he weigh?” Don’t get hung up on a number. Don’t even set a specific number for a goal. Use those body condition charts and the rib palpation test to get a healthy body condition. When you can feel the ribs, the weight’s going to be close to perfect. These two pets are good examples.

Just one quick note on starting a diet plan: consult your veterinarian for a specific strategy. If you cut calories too quickly or severely, you can make your pet seriously sick. Cats, especially, can have fatal consequences from a sudden big drop in their calorie intake. Slow, gradual weight loss until a good body condition is observed is the safe way to go about it. We can accomplish that with changes to the current diet, weight loss foods, exercise, and some other tips. Having the support of the veterinary team will make your job much easier at home. We’d love to help you!

Be honest with yourself about your pet’s weight. It can be the difference between a longer, healthier life and losing years of companionship.

(I’d like to give a special thank-you to my readers for forwarding the picture of using hands to check body condition! Great stuff!)

Kasel Associated Industries Recalls Boots & Barkley Roasted American Pig Ears
And Boots & Barkley American Variety Pack Dog Treats Because of Possible Salmonella Health Risk

 

Contact
Consumer:
(800) 218-4417
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 17, 2012 – Kasel Associated Industries of Denver, CO is voluntarily recalling its BOOTS & BARKLEY ROASTED AMERICAN PIG EARS AND BOOTS & BARKLEY AMERICAN VARIETY PACK DOG TREATS product because it may be contaminated with Salmonella. Salmonella can sicken animals that eat these products and humans are at risk for salmonella poisoning from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the pet products or any surfaces exposed to these products.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these symptoms after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has any of these signs, please contact your veterinarian.

The recalled Roasted Pig Ears and Variety Pack Dog Treats were distributed nationwide through Target retail stores in August 2012.

The Roasted Pig Ears product comes in a clear plastic bag containing 12 pig ears marked with UPC bar code 647263899158. The Variety Pack product also comes in a clear plastic bag weighing 32oz and marked with UPC bar code 490830400086.

Kasel Industries is recalling lot number BESTBY 13SEP2014DEN for both products because this lot code tested positive for the Salmonella bacteria through analysis by the Colorado Department Of Agriculture.

No illnesses have been reported to date in animals or humans in connection with this product.

The recall was the result of a routine sampling by the Colorado Department Of Agriculture that revealed finished products contained the Salmonella bacteria. The company has ceased distribution of any lots that have possible contamination of the bacteria. No other products made by Kasel Associated Industries are included in the recall of the 12 count packages of Roasted Pig Ears and the 32oz Variety Pack Dog Treats.
