The FDA has launched a pet food recall database, with recalls dating back to January 1, 2006. The page says the database will be updated as new recalls happen.
Keep in mind though, that history has shown the FDA isn’t always as fast as we’d like when it comes to announcing recalls. And, as we’ve also learned, some pet food companies try their darnedest to cover up issues with their pet food even when pets are having problems. So, although the FDA database is a good thing, it’s wise not to rely only on this database to be the one source for recall news and/or pet food problems.
When you go to the pet food recall list, you’ll also see a link to recall notices for products such as pigs ears, hooves, and veterinary products such as the medications that were recalled recently.
