(Please note: This kicks ass and therefore this post will possibly overuse bold & underlined text. But, I’m really pumped that a company is actually putting our pets first. I’m almost speechless, but not quite!)
It’s very rare I ever get to say anything good concerning a pet food recall, so take note! AvoDerm is posting information about a recall that has no effect on you, at all. Their own quality control testing caught this problem before the food ever left their distribution center, so it never even made it to any stores. Not only that, they’re still letting their customers know about the possible Salmonella contamination. Remember the food never made it to stores, but AvoDerm says the product concerned is their Natural Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Adult Dog Formula (26 lb. bag only) with “Best-By-Dates”28 Aug 2013, 29 Aug 2013, & 30 Aug 2013.
What a stark freakin’ contrast to the way most companies handle recalls, even when there are pet deaths associated with their recalled food. Most companies delay making a press release and very often use the Friday night Dump & Run, so the recall gets lost in the news cycle. It’s basically a giant “Screw You” to you and your pets’ well-being.
Mistakes happen, but I think AvoDerm should be applauded for having truly effective quality-control and stepping up to take responsibility when it catches a problem. Awesome!
