Cinnaeve did you even read the reason for the recall? It wasnt from questionable food sources, it wasnt even something that affects every dog who eats it, it was a vitamin mix-up that added extra vitamins. The company was very up front with the issue, offered to replace the affected bags of food AND pay for the vet bills. All in all the way the handled the issue would make me switch to BB.
Yes, I most certainly did read the reason for the recall, thanks.
I don't care what the problem with the food is, if it is causing harm to other dogs I don't feel comfortable feeding it to mine. Getting vet bills covered and food costs reimbursed means nothing when you have a sick or dead dog. One of my dogs has been having urinary AND kidney problems, and now I think I know the reason. I don't care how they handled it. I only care that the food is safe for consumption, adn obviously it is not.
No food is going to be 100% safe 100% of the time, crap happens, just as it does with human food. BB could have easily ignored the problem and swept it under the rug because it wasnt that many dogs, but they didnt. They were upfront with what the issue was, and offered to pay for their mistake. You ever hear of diamond foods offering to pay for vet bills?
Do you work for BB or something? Pay for vet bills? Yea right. I'll believe that when I see it. Anyway, I'm not concerned about the money. What I do care about it my dogs' health and the kidney, liver, and urinary problems my older dog has had this past year, likely a result of BB food.
I don't recall ever saying I was planning on buying a bag of Purina. I picked up a bag of Canidae today, fyi. Thanks for all your incredibly helpful comments.
then make your own dog food from scratch, and hope there isn't any problem with the human grade stuff. There are recalls all the time, does that mean you are going to stop eating also? How about the millions of eggs recalled for putting people in the hospital? I mean really, get over it, life isn't perfect.
they found the problem and moved on. I would have no problems picking up a bag of that food again(if I used it).
