Trader Joe’s Pet Food Recalled

Trader Joe'sAlthough not a part of the Menu Foods recall list, Trader Joe’s is recalling all pet foods made by Menu Foods.

According to the FDA, Trader Joe’s pet food products are NOT the same pet foods that are currently being recalled by Menu Foods. However, since safety is of the utmost importance to us, as an extra precaution we have voluntarily pulled all canned pet food items manufactured by Menu Foods from our shelves until we can test the products and be 100 percent sure they are safe for your pets. The products voluntarily pulled are: Dog Food Chunky Beef 22 oz., Dog Food Chunky Chicken 22 oz., Dog Food Lamb & Rice 22 oz., Cat Food Turkey & Giblets, Cat Food Premium Fish/Salmon/Rice and Cat Food Premium Chicken/Turkey/Rice.

If for any reason you would like to return Trader Joe’s canned pet food products, please bring it back to any of our stores for a full refund or exchange.

Kudos to Howl911.

    FYI - the food that was recalled was “cuts in gravy” style food from Menu Foods. I can’t speak for the dog food, but Trader Joe’s canned cat food is a coarse puree, not “cuts in gravy,” and I believe it’s safe. I’ve been feeding my cat TJ’s salmon and turkey cat food for months and he’s the picture of health.

    Yes, I do want to be alerted about future safety recalls. Thank you for your assistance. This whole thing is a nightmare really! My 3 kitties ate TJs canned cat food last week…so far so good, but I don’t know how long it takes for symptoms to appear. I don’t think they’ve hurled any more than their “usual” cat hurlage/fur ball expectorate. I’ll continue to watch carefully. My 2 dogs eat TJs Premium Lite dry food daily, and have eaten TJs canned dog food within a few weeks of today. They seem fine…I’ll just keep saying prayers and watch the Internet for the latest info. Thanks again; I really appreciate your efforts.
