FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - December 6, 2011 - Cargill Animal Nutrition today announced a voluntary recall of two regional brands of its dry dog food1 – River Run and Marksman2 – due to aflatoxin3 levels that were detected above the acceptable limit. The affected products were manufactured at Cargill’s Lecompte, Louisiana, facility between Dec. 1, 2010, and Dec. 1, 2011. No illnesses have been reported in association with these products to date, and no other Cargill Animal Nutrition pet food products are involved in this recall. Affected products are:

Is this and the Iams recall just a coincidence or are these somehow related?

So I can understand that -- this past summer was very hot and dry in many places including our own province. But the food that was produced would have been packaged at least a year ago and would have been a 2010 crop, which was a wetter year. Hmmm.

So, I guess we should also be concerned about Innova Cat and Kitten, seeing how it's a P&G product and it has grains. Not good news.

Well we knew this would expand. I would worry about any P&G product as well as any food with the possibly affected grains.

Based on the Feed and Grain link above, I'd be a bit suspicious of most any pet food product with corn at this time.

Innova doesn't have corn, of course, but other crops were affected as well and I think there may be barley in the formulation. Hopefully, that isn't the case. Hopefully, they don't even get their ingredients from the same place.

If they are ok on the bags you have, maybe start adding something else now before needing new bags of anything in this line ?
