Recently Jen wrote that our food had been recalled.
Several days after the initial recall notice, the Natura Company emailed that the recall had been increased to include more of the product. Jen was worried, and she called the company’s recall hotline and was told that since neither of us appeared to be sick, our food would be fine. The company sent her two coupons for $2 off future purchases.
But Jen didn’t feel comfortable, so she decided that with her next purchase she would change our food. And she’s glad she made that decision, because last night she got yet another email from the company saying Natura has again expanded the recall. While we still have some Evo, she’s throwing it out and changing our food today.
I am taste testing a new food from Petbrosia. I’ll tell you more about that after I’ve eaten it for awhile. DeDe is now eating Nutrisca. Petbrosia also sent food for June Buggie to try. Wow…. pretty daring!
Now I don’t know why the company chose to handle the recall the way they have, and there may still be nothing wrong with our food, but the way the company has handled this recall has left a bad taste in Jen’s mouth. If the concern was this great, why didn’t the original recall cover all products at risk?
Of course, if you do change your dog or cat’s food, you may want to carefully read the label. You may be feeding dog meat to your animal. WHAT??? Yes, check out this editorial from Slate.
I know. It’s all so difficult to navigate the food maze.
But it’s only difficult if you care what you feed.
