BISMARCK, N.D. Four varieties of Ol' Roy dog food, marketed by Wal-Mart, have been recalled because of a manufacturing defect.
The North Dakota Agriculture Department says Simmons Pet Food company of Siloam Springs, Arkansas, which makes the projects, voluntarily recalled them after finding the can linings were separating from the cans.
The department said the products being recalled are 22-ounce cans of Ol' Roy Chicken (UPC 0068113189762), Ol' Roy Beef (UPC 0068113189763), Ol' Roy Hearty Style Chopped Beef (UPC 0068113189770) and Ol' Roy Hearty Loaf (UPC 0068113189771).
Consumers who bought the products may return them to Wal-Mart for a refund, the department said.
The state Agriculture Department registers pet foods sold in North Dakota.

Got in a little argument with my vet over it. He was telling me its so dangerous and blah blah... I said I'd rather take my chances with fresh meat and veggies, and supplements I want to add, than the crap they put in commercial food. That was the end of that discussion.
And not to mention, we've been doing raw for about a month and a half now. Jasmines ears are clearing up...

What do yall think about the raw frozen medallions that come ina bag? Not sure of the brand name but I think there are several companies that produce this stuff.. There is also one that comes in a tub already combined with veggies.
I just saw the pre-packaged raw diet at my pet supply store yesterday. It's kept in the freezer. I asked the manager about it and she acted like it's not that great. But this is the same one who is always trying to get me to use Royal Canin. I'm starting to wonder if she doesn't get some kind of kick back for the Royal Canin! I mean she is very pushy about it. It's almost made me want to start getting my food elsewhere just to avoid her and her "opinions" on the foods I choose. I even looked at the Canidae and said I had heard alot of good things about it. She said it's ok, but Royal Canin is better. I don't believe that. I use Eagle Pack and of course she doesn't care for that either! I tried the Royal Canin and some of my dogs would not eat it. Personally I don't think the price is worth it. The ingredients aren't the most impressive I've seen.
