Thanks to JP for barking this in from Canine Caviar.
Canine Caviar is voluntarily recalling less than 1500 cans in circulation nationally (not cases) and expects to have this collected within 48 hours of April 27, 2007. This unexpected situation is due to the fact that our canned food co-packer was using ingredients that were not authorized by Canine Caviar. Our canned foods have not officially tested positive, but we are recalling the following three can SKUs: 13.2 oz Gourmet Turkey UPC 674555222134, 13.2 oz Gourmet Beaver UPC 674555221328, 5.5 oz Gourmet Beaver UPC 674555221557 dated best by Aug 21, 08 or later.
All of the Gourmet Duck and Venison Tripe in the 13.2 oz cans are made to our standards and do not have any grains in them and are not part of the recall.
During the next few weeks, Canine Caviar will be out of stock on these three cans and recommends using the canned duck or venison tripe.
NONE OF CANINE CAVIARS DRY FOODS, TREATS OR SUPPLEMENTS ARE AFFECTED BY THE RECALL. THESE PRODUCTS ARE PACKED AT A DIFFERENT FACILITY. WE HAVE WRITTEN DOCUMENTATION PROVING THESE PRODUCTS ARE MANUFACTURED TO OUR STANDARDS.
We apologize and have taken steps to increase quality control to ensure this does not happen in the future, we are demanding production records from all or our co-packers for all of our formulas before they are shipped to us. We have reviewed all of our other products and determined that they are free of any unauthorized ingredients.
There have been no illnesses reported related to feeding these formulas, however, to comply with the American Nutrition recall of the two products, we are voluntarily pulling all dates and batches of these two formulas. Please return all cans of turkey and beaver to your store for a full refund.
Please email Canine Caviar at email@example.com for free dry food and treat coupons for this inconvenience.
