Oh awesome. I was going to see if the lots affected had been posted somewhere. (I have a retailer's copy). Thanks Barb.

I know a lot of folks still feeding these. Good to pass on the info.

Many people including myself were eventually expecting something like this when P&G bought Natura Pet Products in 2010. Expect formula changes... too bad, EVO is (was) a good product line.

Big problems and lawsuits happened when P&G bought out Iams and Eukanuba in 1999 for $2.3 billion.
I wrote about it here (if the moderator considers this self-promotion Ill copy and paste the text but nothing is sold on this site).

Innova had some issues with aflatoxins and a very quiet recall back in the late 90s or maybe early 00s. Long before P&G were in the picture. Aflatoxins are far, far more likely to make your dog sick than Salmonella. Pet foods being recalled because of Salmonella is generally due to human safety issues (concerning people handling the food) and not because it's making pets ill.

I wasn't aware... thanks for the info.
Wonder if history will repeat itself and P&G will make a formula change (quietly of course) for EVO & Innova... my guess is yes and it won't be in the best interests for the health of cats/dogs.
