FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 17, 2017 – Wilton, CT – Blue Buffalo Company is voluntarily recalling one production lot of BLUE Wilderness® Rocky Mountain RecipeTM Red Meat Dinner Wet Food for Adult Dogs, as the product has the potential to contain elevated levels of naturally-occurring beef thyroid hormones.

Dogs ingesting high levels of beef thyroid hormones may exhibit symptoms such as increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness.  These symptoms may resolve when the use of the impacted food is discontinued.  However, with prolonged consumption these symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid or difficulty breathing. Should these symptoms occur, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Although the Blue Buffalo Customer Care Resource Team has not received any reports of dogs exhibiting these symptoms from consuming this product, the FDA advised Blue Buffalo of a single consumer who reported symptoms in one dog, who has now fully recovered.  Blue Buffalo immediately began an investigation, however, and after working with the FDA, Blue Buffalo decided it would be prudent to recall the one production lot in question.

The voluntary recall is limited to one production lot of the following product:

Product Name UPC Code Best Buy Date
BLUE Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe Red Meat Dinner Wet Food for Adult Dogs 12.5 oz can 840243101153 June 7, 2019 (found on the bottom of the can)

 

Affected products were distributed nationally through pet specialty and on-line retailers.

No other Blue Buffalo products are impacted by this issue.

If your pet has consumed the product listed above and has exhibited any of these symptoms, please discontinue feeding and contact your veterinarian.  Consumers who have purchased the product subject to this recall should dispose of it or return it to the place of purchase for full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact Blue Buffalo at 866-201-9072 from 8 AM to 5 PM Eastern Time Monday through Friday, or by email at email hidden; JavaScript is required for more information.

Voluntary Recall on Wellness 95% Beef Cans


Wellness

Chuck & Don’s is aware that a voluntary recall has been initiated on Wellness 95% Beef Topper for Dogs 13.2 oz cans with best-by dates of 02 FEB 19, 29 AUG 19 and 30 AUG 19, located on the bottom of the can (UPC 076344894506).

We take the well-being of our customer’s pets seriously. Please refer to the information below from Wellness for specific details. You may return the affected product to any Chuck & Don’s location.

 

March 17, 2017

Dear Valued Consumers and Community,

At WellPet, our team takes food safety matters very seriously, so in an abundance of caution, we are voluntarily recalling a limited amount of one canned dog food product.

Recalled Product Details:
• Wellness 95% Beef Topper for Dogs – 13.2 oz
• Best-By Dates of 02 FEB 19, 29 AUG 19 and 30 AUG 19, located on the bottom of the can

(Please click here for a photo of the product and how the Best-By Date appears.)

A small amount of one recipe has the potential to contain elevated levels of naturally occurring beef thyroid hormone. Elevated levels may affect a dog’s metabolism and can be associated with increased thirst, increased urinary output, restless behavior and weight loss. Even though the chance of a dog being affected is remote, we are voluntarily recalling this recipe and only these three best-by dates as an extra precaution.

Our Consumer Affairs team has received no reports of any health problems as a result of feeding this recipe. No other Wellness products are affected.

Given that the recipe is a mixer or topper and intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only, the likelihood of a dog being affected is remote. Multiple studies indicate that, for the vast majority of pets, symptoms are reversible as soon as the pet stops eating product with elevated thyroid hormone.

If you have any of the 13.2 oz recipe with these three best-by dates, please email us at email hidden; JavaScript is required or call us at 1-877-227-9587.

Please know that safeguarding the health and wellbeing of pets is of the utmost importance to us. We fully intend on maintaining the trust you have placed in us to keep your pets healthy and happy, and are removing this product as part of our ongoing commitment to quality and food safety.

Sincerely,
Camelle Kent's Signature

Product Withdrawal on Blue Buffalo


Blue Buffalo Logo

Chuck & Don’s is aware that a product withdrawal has been initiated on Blue Buffalo Blue Divine Delights and Blue Wilderness Trail Trays 3.5 oz dog food cups (see details below). Although we DO NOT carry these items in our stores, we want to make sure our customers are aware.

We take the well-being of our customer’s pets seriously. Please refer to the information below from Blue Buffalo for specific details.

March 2, 2017

Dear Pet Parents,

I wanted to let you know that we are withdrawing current inventory of Blue Divine Delights and Blue Wilderness Trail Trays 3.5 oz dog food cups from PetSmart because some of the cups may not be properly sealed.  While we have not received any consumer complaints, these cups simply did not meet our high standard for quality so the decision to take them off the shelf was an easy one.

If you purchased either of these products recently, and have any questions or comments, please call 877-870-7363.  And, if for some reason you were not satisfied with the product, you can return it to your local PetSmart for a full refund.

No other Blue Buffalo foods or treats are affected by this withdrawal.

Thanks for your support of Blue Buffalo.  The Bishop family and the entire Herd appreciates your loyalty.

Sincerely,

Billy Bishop
Chief Executive Officer

Recall on Wellness Canned Cat Food


Wellness Canned Cat
Chuck & Don’s is aware that a voluntary pet product recall has been initiated on Wellness Canned Cat food (specific recipes and best by dates — see below) 12.5 oz cans. We’re taking steps to ensure that ALL affected products are NOT available in our stores. Please feel free to contact any of our stores to discuss this recall further.
 
We take the well-being of our customer’s pets seriously. Please refer to the info below from Wellness for details specific to this recall.

Dear Pet Parents,

Here at WellPet we work hard every day to make sure our natural pet food is the best it can be. So when we were notified this week that a very small amount of our canned cat product may not have been manufactured to our high-quality standards, we decided to voluntarily recall it from retailers’ shelves.

Though the chance of having affected product is remote, withdrawing these products is the right thing to do.

Keeping your trust in our brand is so important to us, and so we wanted to let you and our retailers know right away. Since the products may not have been made consistent with our quality assurance guidelines, we want to replace them. Our Quality team learned that a foreign material was found in non-WellPet products made in the same facility, and so we are taking this conservative step to ensure the well-being of cats and to put our consumers’ minds at ease.

The recipes are in 12.5 oz. cans with the following best by dates:

Recipe Best By Date
Wellness Canned Cat 12.5 oz Chicken & Herring 08/04/2019
Wellness Canned Cat 12.5 oz Chicken 08/03/2019 & 08/04/2019
Wellness Canned Cat 12.5 oz Chicken & Lobster 08/04/2019
Wellness Canned Cat 12.5 oz Turkey & Salmon 08/05/2019
Wellness Canned Cat 12.5 oz Turkey 08/04/2019 & 08/05/2019
Wellness Canned Cat 12.5 oz Beef & Chicken 08/05/2019
Wellness Canned Cat 12.5 oz Beef & Salmon 08/05/2019

Please click here for how the best by date appears on your can.

If you have any of the 12.5 oz recipes with these best by dates, you may email us at email hidden; JavaScript is required or call us at 1-877-227-9587 and we’ll replace your product.

No other Wellness recipes that your pets currently enjoy are involved, so you can continue to feed your pets Wellness with full confidence.

WellPet has worked hard to earn the trust of pet parents, and we fully intend on maintaining that trust. As a parent of a yellow lab named Rommel, I understand the sense of responsibility we all share for our dogs and cats. Rest assured we are taking every action to ensure that our highest standards are being met, and product quality and safety will always be our top priority.

Sincerely,

Camelle Kent

Expanded Recall Dog Food Cans

Evanger’s VOLUNTARILY RECALLS HUNK OF BEEF BECAUSE OF PENTOBARBITAL EXPOSURE IN ONE BATCH OF FOOD

Out of an abundance of caution, Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food of Wheeling, IL is voluntarily recalling specific lots of its Hunk of Beef product because of a potential contaminant Pentobarbital, which was detected in one lot of Hunk of Beef Au Jus. Pentobarbital can affect animals that ingest it, and possibly cause side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, or nausea, or in extreme cases, possibly death.

The specifically-identified lot numbers (as detailed below) of cans of 12-oz Hunk of Beef being voluntarily recalled were distributed to retail locations and sold online in the following States: Washington, California, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, and were manufactured the week of June 6 – June 13, 2016.Although pentobarbital was detected in a single lot, Evangers is voluntarily recalling Hunk of Beef products that were manufactured the same week, with lot numbers that start with 1816E03HB, 1816E04HB, 1816E06HB, 1816E07HB, and 1816E13HB, and have an expiration date of June 2020. The second half of the barcode reads 20109, which can be found on the back of the product label.

The subject recall affects 5 lots of food that were produced from its supplier’s lot of beef, which is specifically used for the Hunk of Beef product and no other products. To date, it has been reported that five dogs became ill and 1 of the five dogs passed away after consuming the product with lot number 1816E06HB13. Evanger’s is proactively issuing a recall voluntarily so as not to risk potential exposure to pentobarbital in the product.All Evanger’s suppliers of meat products are USDA approved. This beef supplier provides us with beef chunks from cows that are slaughtered in a USDA facility. We continue to investigate how this substance entered our raw material supply.Because we source from suppliers of meat products that are USDA approved, and no other products have had any reported problems, we are not extending the recall to other supplier lots. This is the first recall for Evanger’s in its 82 years of manufacturing. Although it has been verified that little or no product remains on store shelves, if consumers still have cans with the aforementioned lot numbers, he or she should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-847-537-0102 between 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM Central Time, Monday – Friday.
