021_19_0007***NOTICE 6/1/07: I am in NO WAY associated with ANY for-profit web site linking to this page.***

Since this situation seems to be never-ending, and this page of recall-related information was becoming rather hard to navigate, I have created individual pages for each company in two sections (recalled product pages and suppliers/importers) and listed them below. I have decided to add ANY pet product recalls I find out about, hence the name change from Pet Food Recall info/posts to Pet Product Recalls. Other recent pet-related recalls have taken a back seat to the pet food recall, however these salmonella-related events are obviously worthy of everyone’s immediate attention. I have also continued to add to my initial March 17th post on the pet food recall (who would have thought it would go on THIS long?!), so if you’d like access to all my blog entries on the pet food contamination fiasco, click here. Hope the changes on this page help you find whatever pet-related information you are looking for! 🙂

I compiled a list of where to register complaints in each state since there was much confusion as to which agency interested parties should contact in their area. If you run across contact information which is more up-to-date, could you please post it in a comment so I can add it? Thank you!

Here are two versions of a story by Andrew Bridges for the Associated Press. Mr. Bridges should be commended for doing some quality investigative reporting on the pet product recall and contamination story, but this particular story raised many eyebrows since some rather high figures and information (more than likely accurate!) were deleted and/or altered in subsequent versions of his report.
