Eukanuba Recall for Naturally Wild, Eukanuba Pure, and Eukanuba Sensitive Skin Updated

Eukanuba Recall 2010 of Naturally Wild, Pure and Sensitive Skin Formulas

Here we go again with another dog food recall. P&G is just getting the Iams canned cat food back on the shelf and now is issuing another recall for Eukanuba Naturally Wild, Eukanuba Pure usually this is found in vets, and Eukanuba Sensitive Skin. These are all size bags. ALL DRY SIZES with best by dates of June 1, 2010 to December 1, 2010. But in my honest opinion I wouldn't keep any of it and I would get a refund for any of it that I have. I'm just a little afraid of what is happening because we don't need a repeat of 2007 with that huge recall of dog food. If your looking for something comparable to Eukanuba Naturally Wild, Eukanuba Pure , and Eukanuba Sensitive Skin then you should get Taste of the Wild or Blue Buffalo Dog food. Blue is a great food with little problems.

If I was on any of these foods it's time to switch I understand changing over gradually or to another eukanuba dog food but how long until these are recalled. the reason eukanuba recalled their dog food was because of a possible contamination of salmonella.

Ways to tell if your dog has salmonella

To tell if your dog has salmonella is if they  have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

Added Vet Foods to Dog Food 2010 Recall

Now Iams Vet food has been added to the list here is the list. Iams Veterinary foods have been added to the recall list for June 2010 this means almost all of Iams food seems to have some sort of problem with it.  Remember P&G also make eukanuba that recently had a recall to.

My Dod was sick from Naturally Wild Dog Food. I paid 160.00 in Vet bills because of the food. Eukanuba is slow in confirming my Dog's illness. Weak effort to get in touch with me or my Vet as promised. I know why they say no cases confirmed, they do not want to take the responsibility and confirm a case. No more P&G products for me. I am very disappointed in P&G, very irresponsible.

I agree they think that just because they are animals that they can sweep it under the rug and not do anything about it. I think this is wrong and want to let everyone know. Thanks for the comment Steve

Has anyone else had any medical problems because of the food?. I would like to hear from you. We need to group together and let our voices be heard. thanks

Yes a group would be great to get the word out. We need a large number of people to do this.

I don't know how to get the word out, but there is something terribly WRONG with Iams mini chunks (in the green bag). My dog, who has eaten Iams his whole life, started getting really ill..lethargtic and diarrhea with bloody diarrhea getting worse. After paying for vet bills, we took him off of Iams and within a couple of days he was fine. Please help me warn others! Dogs are eating Iams and suffering needlessly!!!

I have a 15, 7, and (2) 3 year old American Eskimos. Around the time of the Eukanuba recall, one of our 3-year olds started having respiratory difficulty. We now believe it was an allergic reaction to their food. Following one significant attack she became lethargic, exhausted and the pressure from her gasping for air caused the blood vessels in her eyes to rupture turning the whites of her eyes bright red. My son, a paramedic who was present during the attack, stated it appeared similar to an asthmatic attack. Within a few days, while still running tests and giving her a cocktail of drugs, our 7 and 15-year-old dogs began experiencing mild to severe coughing/gagging attacks; a few more days, our 3-year old began to display the same. We racked our brains trying to figure out the cause, while we racked up vet bills of more than $400.

We had introduced Eukanuba Naturally Wild Venison formula into their diet—one of the varieties included in the 2010 recall—along with dry Senior Maintenance that we had been feeding. Before we learned of the recall, we stopped feeding them the food, thinking that the problems were associated with something in the food. Within a day, “vwah-LAH,” the attacks slowed…a week later the attacks ceased altogether. I have been in contact with P & G, who opened a claim; in the end, they have avoided commenting about the specifics in our case only that it had nothing to do with salmonella poisoning. Only after demanding a refund on the non-recalled food we threw out in an email from Danette, Eukanuba Breed Expert, on 9/30/10, she stated, “There have been no reported cases with this issue.” There is a significant problem with EUKANUBA dog food and is not limited to only recalled products.

P&G undertook to refund me the cost of unused Eukanuba Low Reside that I had to dispose of in accordance with their recall notice. I have been waiting 3 months with no action or feedback from them despite several telephone calls and email to them asking for information on the progress of my claim. P&G's handling of this matter is abysmal.
