As a pet parent, pet food recalls can be scary. Recently, a number of pet foods were recalled after hundreds of pets were hospitalized and 70 dogs were lost. But not all pet food recalls are serious or lethal. In fact, many pet food companies voluntarily recall food before reports of illness occur.
Stay ahead of pet food recall alerts
To help you stay prepared, the FDA has a helpful website that compiles food recall notices. This site shows you pet food and treats in a searchable table. It lists the specific food, reason for the recall and an image of the packaging. You can also sign up to receive recall and safety alerts. If you want your recall alerts to be dedicated solely to dogs, Dog Food Advisor has a great service that offers free recall alerts.
