Just got an email from the FDA (their website link is in my blog roll) and wanted to pass the news along ASAP. After the breaking news yesterday of Wal-Mart pulling chicken jerky dog treats produced in China, we are now getting this salmonella warning for Red Flannel dog food produced by Mars Petcare, Inc., and it’s feeling all to eerily similar to the beginning of the pet food chaos we all experienced mid-March and continuing on over these past months. Sigh.
