Natural Balance Pet Foods yesterday announced a voluntary recall of their 5lb and 28 lb bags of Sweet Potato and Chicken Dry Dog Food (made on December 17, 2009 with a best by date of June 17, 2011).
This announcement, a decision of the company’s president, Joey Herrick, was made through Natural Balance’s Club NB via email.
The food tested contaminant free from both an independent lab and the company’s onsite lab, but the FDA found traces of salmonella contamination. While there have been no complaints about the food to the company, they decided it best to announce the recall.
That’s what we call being responsible.
