American Veterinary Medical Association posted the complete list of recalled
products on its website.

producer based in Canada, initially announced the recall on March 16. The AVMA Pet Food
Recall list consolidates all manufacturer, brand and formulation

The AVMA also reminds pet
owners what should be done if an animal is found to be affected by these
contaminated pet foods. Most importantly, pets need to be seen and treated by a
veterinarian. If your pet shows signs of loss of appetite, lethargy, vomiting or
change in urination, consult a veterinarian immediately.
The AVMA wants all
veterinarians to know that any reporting problems with the FDA complaint lines
have been addressed and they should continue to call the FDA's Consumer
Complaint Coordinator for their state.
