Pet food recall list published by AVMA

To help pet owners and veterinarians more easily and quickly sort through the over 100 pet foods currently recalled, AVMA, The American Veterinary Medical Association posted the complete list of recalled products on its website.

The number and brands of pet foods that have been recalled in connection to contaminated wheat gluten has grown since Menu Foods, a private-label pet food producer based in Canada, initially announced the recall on March 16. The AVMA Pet Food Recall list consolidates all manufacturer, brand and formulation information.

What to do?
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.

Contact the manufacturer

Although the comprehensive AVMA Pet Food Recall List contains all recall information that has come to the attention of the AVMA, it is not guaranteed to be complete. The AVMA encourages all concerned to contact the specific manufacturer regarding the status of any particular pet food or treat.
