Dave’s Pet Food of Agawam, Massachusetts, has issued a voluntary recall of a single lot of their Dave’s Simply The Best Dry Dog Food due to rancidity concerns because of an “off odor.”
Affected product includes a single batch of Dave’s Simply the Best dry dog food with a use by date of October 15, 2016.
A letter from Southern Tier Pet Nutrition, the co-packer of the product posted by DogFoodAdvisor.com explains:
No outdated materials were used, however it was noted on a subsequent production run of another product that the rice bran being used had an off odor. This product contains rice bran and could have been the source of the off odor. There was no odor noted during the manufacture of the product in question. The remaining totes of rice bran were discarded.
Customers with the recalled product should return to their place of purchase or contact Dave’s Pet Food via their website, by calling their customer service Monday-Friday, 9 AM – 5PM EST.
