I'm cross posting this because we all know the pet food companies are more casual than those who produce human food in the US. That this is a problem with human food means you've got to be on alert against it in the pet food. How will you know? You won't, all you can do is keep a closer eye on your pets and insist on vets seeing them in case of symptoms. Remember what happened in 2007 *

"Whether commingled in those shipping containers stacked up at U.S. ports or moved across a southern border run by cartels, there are more opportunities for meat smuggling into the United States than ever before. U.S. Customs and Border Protection keeps turning up evidence about how it’s working. At the Los Angeles/Long Beach Seaport April 6 through June 6, 2021, CBP intercepted 19,555 pounds of prohibited pork, chicken, beef, and duck arriving from China."

Cross posting this because I think it might be bird or small pet food.

Netherlands - Food Safety Recall (Netherlands): Charif Food recalls bulkverpakking gepelde pompoenpitten / Bulk-packed peeled pumpkin seeds (Lot #K-2102NLD0033002 /144025-257; Best before 25-10-2022) due to Salmonella contamination.

Cal Prop 12 - delayed, but then what did we expect? After all they are just animals who have no voice.

The ruling delays enforcement of the square footage and sales requirements for whole pork products until 180 days after the final Prop 12 rules go into effect. The judge’s order came in California Hispanic Chambers Of Commerce vs. Karen Ross, found here.

First this is not opinion, it's taken from court documents. Second remember that Rachel Ray no longer has control of her pet food. the company that makes the food sold under her name is JM Smuckers. Smuckers bought the company in 2018.


This lawsuit was filed in April 2020,

"The court documents of a lawsuit filed in April 2020 against Rachel Ray Nutrish Just 6 dog food includes DNA test results (“DNA content analysis” – Exhibit A) that confirms what many have feared for decades. Dog DNA was found in a “Rachel Ray Lamb Meal and Brown Rice Recipe Dog Food.”

Thixton's site provides a list of the ingredients that the lawsuit produced and a click through to the court documents, which are on PDF. You can look at the PDF if you do not feel comfortable with Thixton's blog.

I don't know much about raising baby animals other than cats, but in case you do use creme we have a recall in Europe for it.

Food Safety Recall (France): EARL DUFRAISSE recalls creme crue / raw cream (All lots from 1 January 2022 to 21 February 2022) due to Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

Massachusetts - Three people have been infected with salmonellosis after contact with contaminated dog treats, according to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH).
The Massachusetts DPH is advising consumers who have any Dog Gone Dog Treats to dispose of them.


Of course, this means that the animals who are trying to survive at the landfills will get them. Way to go Gone Dog, we see where you stand on animals.

The United Kingdom has banned imports of feeder rodents from Lithuania because of a Salmonella outbreak in humans.

An ongoing outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis has been linked to mice imported from Lithuania used as animal feed, particularly for reptiles.
