Default Foods NOT affected by recall at Menu Foods

http://petsitusa.com/blog/


With the massive pet food recall that is going on, I have had people asking me what pet food is safe. At this point, feeding our pets any commercially prepared food can feel quite risky. The following companies have made statements that their food is not affected by the Menu Foods recall. Keep in mind that we are not “recommending” any of these foods. Rather, we’re compiling a list of foods that are reported safe by the manufacturers.

Alpo (Nestle Purina)


Artemis - Holistic Pet Food


Aunt Jeni’s (Home Made 4 Life)

* They make all their own food (no outsourcing)
* No wheat products of any kind
