  1. You know, we don't have that here. As far as i know. Maybe if some products have a recall, grocery owners don't mind. They think... Oh well, those are just for animals anyway. Animal welfare here is not as much important as it is there. That's why i'm very blessed i'm in my forever home. Mom takes good care of me and she buys me good food, as much as mom can afford. She reads the labels and the nutrition facts. We are blessed aren't we?

  2. We have Purina but I've never tried it with the dogs yet. I'm usually a Petcurean or Solid Gold gal.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Audrey does eat one of the Purina One Chicken dry foods for CATS, so looks like we dodged a bullet, but barely.

  4. Didn't that happen a couple weeks ago? Or is it happening again?

  5. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Thanks for the info....Sam doesn't eat that particular food but I'm glad they are being responsible and pulling it from the shelves. Good for Purina.


  7. We do not eat dry and Dad says there are more problems with that then wet.
    Thanks for the info

  8. Thanks for helping spread the word. These press releases slide out on Friday afternoons so that consumers and even retailers miss them.

  9. Thanks for posting this. We were aware of it but the more spreading the word, the better.

  10. Fenris's Mom has been saying Purina One is making pets sick for months now. It's about time they recalled some of it.

  11. Thank you for posting about this. Seems like there have been quite a few recalls due to salmonella recently.

  12. Thank you for posting this information it is good to know and be aware.


Coolio! A comment? For US?
