RECALL: Woody’s Raw Turkey Dog Food

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is notifying consumers of a recall of raw turkey pet food from Woody’s Pet Food Deli due to Salmonella contamination. This recall is being issued after product samples collected by the MDA tested positive for Salmonella. Sampling was begun after the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) identified a human case of Salmonella linked to the pet food.

The recalled product was sold in 5-pound plastic containers labeled “Woody’s Pet Food Deli Raw Free Range Turkey” and can be identified by the white date sticker on the cover of the pet food container. The product was sold at Woody’s Pet Food Deli locations in Minneapolis, St. Paul and Woodbury. The following three lots of product are being recalled:

  • Use by date: 01/10/20
  • Use by date: 01/12/20
  • Use by date: 01/15/20

No other lots of Woody’s Pet Food Deli products are affected by the recall.

More information can be found on the MDA website.

Let’s Not Jump About the FDA Investigation on Legumes and Potatoes

FDA Logo         The FDA released yesterday afternoon to alert pet owners and veterinary professionals about reports of canine dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in dogs eating certain pet foods containing peas, lentils, other legume seeds, or potatoes as main ingredients.  Since DCM most often happens in large breed dogs, we should not jump into action and stop feeding our dogs grain-free food because of this FDA investigation without a conclusion or consulting your holistic DVM.

If you read the complete bulletin that was released, canine diets in cases reported to the FDA “frequently list potatoes or multiple legumes such as peas, lentils, other “pulses” (seeds of legumes), and their protein, starch and fiber derivatives early in the ingredient list, indicating that they are main ingredients”.  I do not agree with these being the main ingredients for dogs and since it could be a taurine deficiency, as dogs should be fed strong levels of beef, lamb, dark chicken meat, eggs, seaweed, krill and brewer’s yeast. In addition, raw meat is fairly known for its richness in taurine.

If you are a client of a holistic DVM, I would consult with them first before a decision is made on changing your form of food; whether that is commercial, raw or cooked homemade food.

The Story Behind the Pentobarbital in National Dog Food Recall

ABC7 television station in Washington, DC, investigated and exposed how the euthanasia drug was found at high levels in dog food.  Soon after the FDA investigated to find even higher levels than thought in many nationally distributed dog foods.

Brands involved were:  Smucker’s subsidiary, Big Heart Brands – the maker of Gravy Train, Kibbles ‘N Bits, Ol’ Roy and Skippy dog foods.

I have hyperlinked the two reports to give you the details and history behind the recall and one family that is still mourning the death of their beloved dog.
