New recalls from Natural Balance…
Breaking Recall News: Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Our canned manufacturer, American Nutrition, from Ogden Utah just informed us that they are recalling all canned products made in their plant that contain rice protein concentrate. American Nutrition continued by telling us that they added this ingredient  to four of our canned products without informing us.

The four products involved are:

  • Chicken Formula Canned Dog Food 13 oz
  • Lamb Formula Canned Dog Food 13 oz
  • Beef Formula Canned Dog Food 13 oz
  • Ocean Fish Formula Canned Cat Food 3 oz & 6 oz

To make sure that this does not happen in the future, we are demanding from each of our co-packers daily production record of all of our formulas before they are shipped to us. .  We have reviewed all of our other products and determined that they are free of rice protein concentrate and that all of our other product labels are accurate.

There have been no illnesses reported related to feeding these formulas, however, to comply with the American Nutrition recall of the four products, we will pull all dates and batches of these four formulas.  We also ask that our customers return unused product for a full credit to their store.

Products NOT involved in the recall are:


  • Ultra Premium Formula Dry Dog Food
  • Reduced Calorie Formula Dry Dog Food
  • Ultra Premium Formula Dry Cat Food

By stating on their website none of heir pets got sick they are stating I never gave them a heads up and that Mackie didn’t get sick all over again.

I am trying to find an alternative to venison and pea – my cat was eating the Natural Balance venison and pea. He appears to be unaffected by the recall – thank god. I got him tested the other day, and he is allergic to practically everything else and besides Hills – what other products sell a grain free venison diet????????? What have people switched to? HELP!
