Blue Buffalo Dog Food Recall Event Number 2 of March 2017

Folks, you read it right…there has been yet ANOTHER dog food recall…this time Blue Buffalo Rocky Mountain Recipe. It contains the same naturally occurring thyroid hormone we just published in our previous blog post.

My guess is that these companies are using the same beef suppliers? I wonder how this naturally occurring hormone is being found in excess in this meat?

What are your thoughts on this? We’d love to read them!

Complete details of the second Blue Buffalo dog food recall event of March 2017 as reported by the editors of the Dog Food Advisor:

March 17, 2017 — Blue Buffalo Company is voluntarily recalling one production lot of BLUE Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe Red Meat Dinner Wet Food for Adult Dogs because the product may contain elevated levels of naturally occurring beef thyroid hormone.

What’s Being Recalled?

The recall is limited to one production lot of the following product:

  • BLUE Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe Red Meat Dinner Wet
    Food for Adult Dogs
  • Size: 12.5 ounce can
  • UPC Code: 840243101153
  • Best-By Date: June 7, 2019 (bottom of can)

Affected products were distributed nationally through pet specialty and on-line retailers.

No other Blue Buffalo products are impacted by this issue.

About the Recall

Dogs ingesting high levels of beef thyroid hormones may exhibit symptoms such as increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness.

These symptoms may resolve when the use of the impacted food is discontinued.

However, with prolonged consumption these symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid or difficulty breathing.

Should symptoms occur, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Although the Blue Buffalo Customer Care Resource Team has not received any reports of dogs exhibiting these symptoms from consuming this product, the FDA advised Blue Buffalo of a single consumer who reported symptoms in one dog, who has now fully recovered.

Blue Buffalo immediately began an investigation.

However, after working with the FDA, Blue Buffalo decided it would be prudent to recall the one production lot in question.

What to Do?

If your pet has consumed the product listed above and has exhibited any of these symptoms, please discontinue feeding and contact your veterinarian.

Consumers who have purchased the product subject to this recall should dispose of it or return it to the place of purchase for full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact Blue Buffalo at 866-201-9072 from 8 AM to 5 PM Eastern Time Monday through Friday.

Or by email at CustomerCare@bluebuffalo.com.

Voluntary Cat Food Recall: Wellness

We have learned that there has been a voluntary recall for Wellness cat food.  It appears a foreign material was found in a non-Wellness product; however, the product was manufactured in the same facility as Wellness brand food. The company has stepped up to alert consumers in the remote chance that their food may be affected.  The original statement is posted below. 

We have many clients that feed Wellness and we have fed it in the past. It is a high quality food and we were impressed at the company’s disclosure even though it appears that there’s a low chance that any of this foreign material was actually found in their cat food.

Please share this important information to all you know that may be affected.
