Precise Pet Under New ownership (again)
Precise Pet foods has been purchased by Barkstrong LLC just 3 years after its acquisition by Kodo, Inc. You may recall that Barkstrong recently rescued Wild Calling from bankruptcy and has resumed production and shipping of its canned formulas.
Barkstrong has also purchased 3 other premium pet food companies and appears to be building a very strong portfolio of healthy, natural pet foods. Read more…
Rad Cat Recall Expands
The recall issued last month by Radagast Pet Food has expanded to include all formulas produced during a specified timeframe.
All formulas and sizes with lot numbers between 62763 and 63101, inclusive, are now being recalled due to the potential of having been exposed to Listeria.
Following the initial recall, the company performed a complete teardown, inspection and cleaning of production equipment. During this inspection process, a small quantity of Listeria bacteria was found in a screw hole of the equipment. Read more…
FDA Investigating Possible Connection of Diet and Canine Heart Disease
For many years we’ve been told to “eat your vegetables” but Mom never told us to “eat your pulses.” The FDA is now studying whether there may be a connection between pulses or potatoes in pet food and some medical issues.
Pulses are the seeds of certain legumes like beans, peas and lentils. They are often considered vegetables, although by definition fall into a category of their own. Pulses are high in both protein and fiber, and can be used as a meat substitute to supply protein. So why would the FDA be concerned about pulses in pet food?
Last month the FDA announced they were looking at a potential link between diet and canine heart disease. Recent reports to the FDA have raised concerns that potatoes or pulses as primary ingredients in pet food may contribute to higher than normal levels of canine dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). DCM is a heart disease which can result in congestive heart failure. Read more…
A New Home for Smiley the Bus
Earlier this year, we mentioned there would be some administrative changes in the coming months. The first of these had to do with the beloved Smiley the bus.
Thank you all for the suggestions that came in for consideration. In the end, Smiley in a home with a new but familiar role.
We’re not quite at liberty yet to disclose what that role will be, but rest assured the legacy of Smiley will proudly carry forth in its new home. We’ll be posting a bit more information on this and related news in the coming weeks.
For now, we’ll leave you with this intriguing question… who is this smiling man and what is he doing with Smiley the bus?
