PET FOOD RECALLS 2010

 

2010 was a bad year for dog food manufacturers. While most owners know about the Blue Buffalo recall, the puzzle of contaminated ingredients is intriguing.

 

Easy-to-search running list of PET FOOD RECALLS

Other sites fail to provide records on frequency and reasons for product recalls, both of which indicate a company's pattern and safety record.  Learn which pet food companies to avoid: see 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 below, latest month first.

To quickly search any year, depress your Ctrl key and the letter F, then type in the dog food company, brand, or UPC code and click "find next".  Watch for multiple pet food recalls by the same company.

 

Instant info pops open to that particular ingredient.  See Dog Food Ingredients for the net's most complete and in-depth information on what's in the dog food bag!

 

From Alpo and Authority to Royal Canine and Iams, trusted names have made the Dog Food Recalls list.  Consistent salmonella contamination leads to speculation regarding common sourcing of ingredients.  Chinese melamine was the culprit in 2007 and in 2009 Menu Foods, makers of Nutro, settled a $24 million dollar lawsuit over the largest pet food recall in history.
