Has anyone tried this new food? I bought one can, the cats loved it (Chicken). Ingredients are simple.
Though I really dont like the looks of the cans.

I wish they would specify a species for the liver.

Am writing to ask about the sourcing for their rabbit.

Just bought 3 cans , it was a buy 2 get 1 free offer . Oreo would not touch the rabbit , but next doors cats loved it . Split a can of Inland waters between Oreo & Nancy's 2 indoor cats today . 1st sniffed at & walked away , but all 3 came back & ate it . Haven't tried the 3rd flavor yet , will post when I do .

Couldn't get the email to go through on their website, so phoned them.  They said that yes, their rabbit is US sourced.

Sad Brewers yeast in the chicken food.  But it looks good otherwise.

Yes too much Brewers yeast cannot be a good thing long term.  Did anyone else notice how some cans look rusty, or they are flimsy tops. Kinda like how Evangers canning was.
I did not even think to ask what the source of liver was Roll Eyes
Can someone post what the source of liver is, and who does their canning?

Because they don't name the liver source, I would imagine that it varies batch to batch.  Which obviously could be a problem for animals with allergies.

I'd also be curious who does their canning...

Funny how many people have learned to identify those cans...your thinking was right on track, TBOBINA.

Now that makes me really angry ! I specifically asked Cutter's Mill if Evangers canned it & they said no . That 3rd can is going to the shelter, I would trash it but the shelter really needs food .

This is from their facebook page -

"Our canned product is manufactured by both American Nutrition and Evanger’s. As we are aware, there has been a lot of negativity surrounding Evanger’s. Unfortunately with only 5 canneries in the US and only two willing to produce product for young startup companies like us, we are limited in choices. I can assure you we have very strict manufacturing guidelines and random testing in place with all our copack partners. Furthermore, we use one of the industries top nutritionist to help build all our products. Never have we found any issues with the product produced at Evanger’s and it is actually favored among consumers between product produced at ANI v Evangers. Evanger’s has been cleared of any wrongdoing surrounding the product they produce by the FDA. It is very unfortunate they have legal issues surrounding what appears to be a lack of judgement and personal deficiency but this in no way impacts the quality of product they produce. Now, more than ever they are concerned about producing a quality product that abides by all applicable laws. We would not have partnered with them if they didn’t agree to abide by our strict standards. They produce product for several of the industries canned foods including Weruva, Party Animal and Addiction to name a few. We are very excited they are moving into a new state of the art facility as well which they are hoping will be Leeds certified. I know there are websites where the content creator has a certain viewpoint or agenda they want to promote. I would hope you would reach out to the manufacturer as you have done to get correct information from the source. Thank you for doing this. We are a company committed to open transparency and will gladly share any more information you would like clarified. If you would like to discuss more in-depth please don’t hesitate to call me at my number below."

I've seen this food at my pet food supplier and almost bought it, but identified the cans as evangers.  On the label it looks like a really decent food.

(note:  Leeds certification would have absolutely nothing to do with the quality of the product. Leeds is a way of building in "energy efficient" devices, in order to get a tax break.)

I recently discovered this food and came here to check it out. I was surprised to see it's been around at least a couple years.
I bought 2 cans of Turkey http://wildcalling.com/products/trotn-tommy/ and 2 cans of Chicken http://wildcalling.com/products/cabin-fever/ and the cats seemed to really like it, even the picky one licked her bowl clean.
Does anyone know if they are still using Evanger's for canning or has anything changed with this food in the past couple of years? I didn't see Brewers Yeast listed in the ingredients.
I really was happy to find an additional food to use in my rotation, but this one has me having second thoughts now.  Undecided
