Pet Food Disaster
How to protect your dog from being a victim of defective pet foods. Whole Dog Journal takes a look at the history of pet food recalls.
In October of 2004 we published an article (When Foods Go Bad) that discussed how owners could protect their pets from serious harm from contaminated or toxin-adulterated pet food. It outlined the lessons learned from the three previous commercial pet food disasters: the 1995 event involving vomitoxin in Natures Recipe dry foods; the 1998 aflatoxin event involving dry dog foods made by Doane Products; and the still-unidentified problem that sickened and killed dogs who ate certain lots of Go! Natural dry food in 2003.
