    [h=3]Solid Gold Dry Food Recall[/h] Date: May 8, 2012
    Below is the official Solid Gold dry food recall effective today. This affects a single batch of WolfCub puppy and a single batch of WolfKing adult.

    Solid Gold Health Products for Pets, Inc. Recalls Dog Food Because
    of Possible Salmonella Health Risk

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - May 8, 2012 - Solid Gold Health Products for Pets, Inc., El Cajon, California, announced a voluntary recall of one batch of WolfCub Large Breed Puppy Food and one batch of Solid Gold WolfKing Large Breed Adult Dog Food after being notified by Diamond Pet Foods regarding the presence of Salmonella in Diamond's Gaston, South Carolina facility.

    Solid Gold is voluntarily recalling the products below, distributed in the United States and Canada from between January and May 2012. This voluntary recall is being done out of an abundance of caution as these products were produced at the facility that has been linked to recent recalls of Diamond brand pet foods due to potential Salmonella contamination.

    Pets with Salmonella infections may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

    Individuals handling dry pet food can become infected with Salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to this product. People who believe they may have been exposed to Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. According to the Centers for Disease Control, people who are more likely to be affected by Salmonella include infants, children younger than 5 years old, organ transplant patients, people with HIV/AIDS and people receiving treatment for cancer.

    The products involved in this voluntary recall are:

    Solid Gold WolfCub Large Breed Puppy Food, 4 lb, 15 lb, and 33 lb, with a best before date of December 30, 2012 and batch code starting with SGB1201
    4 lb identifying UPC 093766750005
    15 lb identifying UPC 093766750012
    33 lb identifying UPC 093766750029

    Solid Gold WolfKing Large Breed Adult Dog Food, 4 lb, 15 lb, and 28.5 lb, with a best before date of December 30, 2012 and batch code starting with SGL1201
    4 lb identifying UPC 093766750050
    15 lb identifying UPC 093766750067
    28.5 lb identifying UPC 093766750081

    Best by dates (lot codes) can be found on the back of the bag in the bottom right-hand corner of 33 lb, 28.5 lb and 15 lb bags and the bottom of the 4 lb bags.

    Other Solid Gold recipes, sizes or brands of food are not impacted by this voluntary recall.

    Pet owners who are unsure if the product they purchased is included in the recall, would like replacement product or have additional questions, may call us at (800) 364-4863 (Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM through 5:00 PM Pacific time).
    [h=3]Two batches of Solid Gold Dog Food Recalled[/h] Date: May 7, 2012
    May 7, 2012

    Just a few hours ago, Solid Gold received information that two batches of our foods were made at the Diamond Gaston plant around the same time period as some of the previously recalled foods of other brands. Though we have had zero complaints about these particular batches, we have decided to recall them as a precautionary measure. Due to the time difference between us and the appropriate FDA office, there was not enough time in the day to further discuss this voluntary recall with the FDA. We are announcing this now because we know our customers are concerned and didn't want an entire night to go by without this information being available to the public. Tomorrow morning (May 8th), after speaking with the FDA, Solid Gold will officially institute a voluntary recall of two batches of food made at the Diamond Gaston facility.

    The following products will be part of this voluntary precautionary recall. Only the two foods with this particular best before date and batch code will be part of the recall.
    Solid Gold WolfKing Large Breed Adult Food:
    All sizes
    Best before December 30, 2012
    Batch code starting with SGL1201

    Solid Gold WolfCub Large Breed Puppy Food
    All Sizes
    Best before December 30, 2012
    Batch code starting with SGB1201

    No other Solid Gold products are affected.

    We greatly apologize for any concern and inconvenience this may cause and greatly thank you for your patience. Further information will be available in the official recall tomorrow morning. As always, please contact us at 800-364-4863 or dane@solidgoldhealth.com with any questions and we will respond as quickly as possible.

    WellPet Recalls Dry Dog Food

    WellPet Recalls Dry Dog Food

    WellPet LLC has voluntarily recalled 12-pound bags of its Wellness Small Breed Adult Health dry dog food with a best-by date of Aug. 18, 2013, due to concern that high moisture levels can create the potential for mold.

    Posted: Nov 1, 2012, 10 a.m. EST

    Customers who bought any of the bags are being asked to return the product for a full credit.

    Communication about the recall has been hampered because websites operated by WellPet, the Tewksbury, Mass., manufacturer of pet food brands Wellness, Holistic Select, Eagle Pack and Old Mother Hubbard, are down due to damage from Hurricane Sandy, a spokeswoman said today.

    Though the company's Massachusetts employees are at work, the website servers are housed in New Jersey, which suffered billions of dollars in damage from the storm.

    The websites may be operating again Friday, company spokeswoman Amy Grosheider said.

    The company's consumer affairs team is serving pet owners and retailers by fielding phone calls at 800-225-0904 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT and by responding to email at info@wellpet.com.

    Dog Food Recall from Hy-Vee Grocery Stores

    2/26/13

    Hy-Vee Inc, a chain of grocery stores in the midwestern United States has issued a voluntary recall on certain bags of Hy-Vee dog food due to elevated levels of a chemical contaminant commonly found in corn. The concern is Aflatoxin, which is a naturally occurring by-product from the growth of Aspergillus flavus (fungi) and can be harmful to pets if consumed in significant quantities.

    The Iowa Department of Agriculture conducted routine tests in which higher-than-normal levels of aflatoxin were found in some samples of Hy-Vee dog food produced at a Kansas City plant. The recalled products carry three different “Best By†dates and were distributed to Hy-Vee stores in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin between October 26, 2012 and January 11, 2013.

    Symptoms of illness from exposure to aflatoxin may include sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish tint to the eyes or gums, or diarrhea. If your pet has consumed this food and is displaying these symptoms a trip to a veterinarian is highly recommended. Check this list for a complete list of recalled food. If you have purchased this food, you can also take it back to the store for a full refund.
