Caring for your dog today means avoiding pet food problems, including those caused by trying to feed the very best food!  Whether organic, BARF, raw foods or home cooked, always check ingredients, and try to determine where commercial dog food is manufactured.  Even then, there's some uncertainty as is evident in the latest pet food recalls and tainted animal feeds. Failure to inspect the food supply, especially ingredients from China, means it could have been any dog food brand!  Explore the Nutrition index to learn the best way to care for and feed your dog.


June 6 2007 BULLETIN: FDA Finds Salmonella In Dog Food


MANASSAS, Va. — A pet food maker today recalled some of its dog food sold exclusively at Wal-Mart Stores Inc. because of concerns about possible salmonella contamination.  The recall issued by Brentwood, Tenn.-based Doane Pet Care Co. is unrelated to recent pet food recalls connected to tainted Chinese proteins used in some pet food production.

Only a single batch of 55-pound bags of Ol' Roy Complete Nutrition dog food is being recalled. The dog food was produced at a plant in Manassas and distributed to 69 Wal-Mart stores in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Ohio. Forty of the stores are in Virginia.

The company recalled the dog food after the Food and Drug Administration detected the presence of salmonella. People handling the food could potentially be exposed to the bacteria, along with pets that eat the food. The company said no illnesses have been reported.

Affected bags have the code 04 0735 1 and a "best by" date of April 13, 2008.

Doane Pet Care is a division of the privately held, McLean-based Mars Inc. manufacturer of candy and pet foods.  call 800-624-7387 or find further information at
