SmartPak Canine has recalled their product "LiveSmart Weight Management". They were using a rice protein concentrate from Wilbur-Ellis which already issued recalls on their products. SmartPak is claiming that all of their other products were not affected. The company has stated that they have contacted all of the customer that ordered this foods from online (which is their primary source of business) and informed them of the situation. Hopefully those individuals have been informed. However we just wanted to share this information directly with you since many pet owners had problems finding more information on their website. We talked to SmartPak today and they did provide us with a link to the recall information. They have to primary websites and the information was only posted on one of the sites. For detailed information about SmartPak products please visit http://www.nationalpetfoundation.com/dog-food-recall.html/smartpak-recall.htmlUPDATE: Leigh-Ann over at The Blog Pound posts about yet another food that is now on the recall list. This time it includes DRY food: Drs. Foster & Smith Adult Dry Lite cat food, and Drs. Foster & Smith Adult Dry Lite dog food. Head on over to her place to get the full details....

Blue Buffalo Spa Select Dry Formula for Kittens (only the bags marked “Best Used By Mar. 07 08 B”)Seems that the U.S. is NOT the only country affected by contaminated ingredients. South Africa has been affected as well. This time, it's corn gluten that's contaminated with melamine. Leigh Ann also passes along some very good advice on label reading. Click HERE to read on.

For some, the story ended there. But for others, there was one more horrifying chapter. Because kidney failure causes nausea, it's often hard to get recovering pets to eat. So a lot of these owners got down on their hands and knees and coaxed and begged and eventually hand-fed their pets the very same food that had made them sick. Those animals ended up right back in the hospital and died, because their loving owners didn't know that the food was tainted.To read the entire passage, click HERE. It is a well written, moving piece. It sure makes me wonder about Pinky Lee. She was eating Science Diet canned food.
