Voluntary Recall on BLUE Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe


Blue Buffalo Logo

Chuck & Don’s is aware that a voluntary recall has been initiated on  BLUE Wilderness® Rocky Mountain RecipeTM Red Meat Dinner Wet Food for Adult Dogs (see details below). Although we DO NOT carry this item 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.

 

Consumers:

866-201-9072

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
Camelle Kent
Chief Executive Officer
