Two recalls in one post:
American Nutrition is finally recalling their foods containing rice protein concentrate. The recall covers Costco’s Kirkland Signature Super Premium Canned Food, item # 38436, best buy dates of Aug. 21 08 to April 15 of 09.
UPDATE: The ingredient is listed as “rice flour”. Pet Connection has details on how Costco’s recall started.
Itchmo has learned that the recall covers two formulations sold in a single case:
- Kirkland Signature Super Premium Chicken and Rice Canned food for Dogs
- Kirkland Signature Super Premium Lamb and Rice Canned food for Dogs
American Nutrition says that their products were tested by them, FDA and state officials and melamine was found by one group.
Chenango Valley is adding one more product to the recall list in addition to SmartPak and Drs. Fosters & Smith products:
- Lick Your Chops Lamb Meal, Rice & Egg Cat Food in packages with a net weight of 4 lbs. and a code date best used by April 29, 2008.

NOTE: FDA claims they were unaware of either of theses recalls. It’s amazing that after more than a month of recall after recall, that the FDA still can’t get a handle on the information before the blogs do.
