Recall: AvoDerm Dry Dog Food

Breeder’s Choice Pet Foods has announced a voluntary recall of a single batch of its AvoDerm dry dog food, due to possible contamination with Salmonella.  The recall applies to their 26 pound bags of AvoDerm Natural Lamb Meal and Rice Adult Dog Formula. The affected bags have “Best Before” dates of August 28, 2013, August 29, 2013, and August 30, 2013.  The product was manufactured Aug. 29, 2012 and distributed Aug. 30 and 31 to California, Georgia, Illinois, Nevada, Virginia and Washington.

The company states that due to their quality inspection, they were able to contain the affected dog food at distribution centers, thereby preventing it from being delivered to retail outlets. Salmonella has not been found during the company’s testing in any other products in the AvoDerm and Breeder’s Choice lines, and no human or pet illnesses have been reported so far.

For more information, you can go to the AvoDerm website or call the AvoDerm consumer contact line at (866) 500-6286.
