Natural Balance Pet Foods recalled two kinds of pet
food after receiving reports of animals vomiting and experiencing kidney
problems, the Food and Drug Administration said Monday.
The recall includes all date codes of Venison & Brown Rice Dry Dog Food
and Venison & Green Pea Dry Cat Food. The company does not know the cause of
the problem, but said it is focused on one particular lot. Natural Balance Pet
Foods is working with the FDA to investigate the matter and is urging consumers
to not feed either pet food product to their animals.
Last month, Menu
Foods recalled 60 million cans of dog and cat food after the deaths of 16
pets, mostly cats, that ate its products. The FDA said tests indicated the food
was contaminated with an industrial chemical, melamine
. At least six pet food
companies have recalled products made with imported Chinese wheat gluten tainted
with the chemical. The recall involved about 1% of the US pet food
FDA spokeswoman Julie Zawisza said the agency had no indication
that the Natural Balance case is related to the melamine
