I mix a bit of Applaws chicken in with the prescription food when they won't eat it.. I think I'll hold off for a while.

EDIT: forget that.. it's the UK dry food.

Midwestern Pet Food - don't you feel safe now, after 7 months of pets dying that the FDA finally investigated Midwestern Pet food plants?

"Today (8/17/21) the FDA issued the following: “FDA Issues a Corporate-Wide Warning Letter to Company Associated with Contaminated Pet Food, Hundreds of Adverse Events.” The FDA Warning Letter comes seven months after recalls issued by Midwestern Pet food. "

"Nestlé Purina PetCare Recalls One Lot of Canned Cat Food

Nestlé Purina PetCare has recalled one lot of 3 oz. cans of Purina Pro Plan Complete Essentials Tuna Entrée in Sauce Wet Cat Food in what they are calling “an abundance of caution” due to potential contamination of “black flexible plastic pieces which could pose a choking hazard if swallowed.” Sold at pet specialty, farm/feed and online retailers in the United States only, retailers have been contacted and asked to remove products from shelves.


To find out if your cans are involved, look for the following information on the bottom of cans:


  • Consumer UPC 38100-11197
  • Best By: JUN2023
  • Lot Production Code: 11621160


and from this PDF - Nestle-Purina News

Recalled: Smalls Human-Grade Fresh Cat Food (Chicken, Turkey)

This recall was made in June 2021 and not publized. Though it appears the affected product was removed, you may wish to consider using a brand that would have a 'silent' recall even when it was all that was needed.

Maker: True Pet Food Project Inc. (Smalls)
Cause: Off odor and color
Announcement: Company website announcement dated June 2021 (archived here); FDA Enforcement Report dated June 24, 2021 (archived here); company letter to customers, undated (archived here)
What was recalled: The following recipes and lot numbers of Smalls cat food:

  • Smalls Human-Grade Fresh Ground Bird Chicken Recipe Cat Food, 11.5 oz., lot numbers 21109 through 21136
  • Smalls Human-Grade Fresh Smooth Bird Chicken Recipe Cat Food, 11.5 oz., lot numbers 21109 through 21136
  • Smalls Human-Grade Fresh Ground Other Bird Turkey Recipe Cat Food, 11.5 oz., lot numbers 21109 through 21136
  • Smalls Human-Grade Fresh Smooth Other Bird Turkey Recipe Cat Food, 11.5 oz., lot numbers 21109 through 21136
Apparent refrigeration issues led to a voluntary recall of certain packages of Smalls cat food earlier this year. It was the first recall in the company’s history.

In an announcement on the Smalls website dated June 2021 — but which went unpublicized for nearly 3 months — Smalls co-founder Matt Michaelson explained that the recall was initiated after a few customers complained that the products “looked spoiled and had an unusual color.”


my source is Dave at Petful, who did not receive notice
Thanks to a tip from a Petful subscriber, I became aware of a recall involving Smalls cat food earlier this year. It had been announced by the company in June, but no one seems to have reported on it ... until now.
