Dog Food Recalls
In the United States, it is required by law to list the ingredients of pet food on the label.
However, this law does not apply to treats. This means that many pet owners are unaware of what they are feeding their pets. In recent years, there have been a number of recalls due to harmful ingredients being found in pet food and treats. In our site, Our Pets HQ, we track recalls and share all info on dog food recalls, why they happen, and some of the brands that have been affected.
Read our guides on voluntary dog food recalls.
You can find all info on the latest dog food recalls – the latest being February 18, 2022.
We track government agencies as well as pet-focused organizations such as AAFCO and WSAVA on their recommendations.
What should I do if my dog food is recalled?
If your dog’s food is recalled, you should stop feeding it to your pet immediately and contact the manufacturer for more information. You may also be able to return the food to the store where you bought it.
Are all recalls bad?
No, not all recalls are bad. Sometimes a product is recalled because the manufacturer has found a problem, but the product is still safe to eat. However, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and not feed a recalled product to your pet.
