Just a FYI, California Naturals is made by Natura which was bought by Proctor & Gamble last year which makes Eukanuba. Eukanuba has had a number of recalls through the years and I know I am not comfortable with P&G calling the shots over at Natura. Obviously you can make your own determination but I'm not sure a lot of people know about that tidbit.

Yep... we switched off Cali Naturals onto TOTW after P&G bought Natura Pet... I don't believe they have had any issues yet, but I decided to switch before they "optimized" their formulas and I HAD to switch. YMMV.

I don't keep bags (never have with any food I feed) but I DO take scissors and cut out the lot number and keep it in case there should ever be a problem. It's a really small part of the bag that has the lot number printed on it, so it's easier to just cut it out! I tape a little sticky note on it with the date I opened the bag so I know which is the most recent. I had problems before where I forget to throw the old piece of bag away and end up with two or three little pieces of bag in the cabinet with the food and have no idea which is the most recent. =P


ltret, the only food actually affected by potential salmonella tainting is Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice. Natural Balance isn't affected so your bags should be fine. You can call them at the number on this page if you need reassurance though:

Nat Bal did have an issue with mold in some of their cat foods, most likely due to being put into bags wet. Just FYI.
