Breeder’s Choice Pet Foods has recalled specific batches of its AvoDerm Natural Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Adult Dog Formula. Here’s the information from the company’s statement (PDF):
We discovered during our quality testing that a singular, isolated manufacturing batch of
AvoDerm Natural Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Adult Dog Formula (26 lb. bag only) would be
required for recall due to possible contamination with Salmonella. These suspected products
are identified by “Best by” dates on the suspected products are 28 Aug 2013, 29 Aug 2013, and
30 Aug 2013.
As a result of the quality inspection, we were able to immediately contain the impacted product
at distribution centers to prevent it from being delivered to retail outlets.
The presence of Salmonella contamination has not been found during our ongoing product
testing program for the AvoDerm and Breeder’s Choice lines.
If this is the case, then none of the affected product made it to your local store. However, according to the FDA recall page, “Recalled products were distributed to retailers and distributors in the states of California, Georgia, Illinois, Nevada, Virginia, and Washington.” So check those labels carefully!
