    Thank for your posting the recall! I’m confused because I can’t find this information on the FDA site. I don’t see this product listed as of October 1, 2015? Was there a retraction on the recall maybe? Or, am I missing it from your source? Thanks fda.gov/animalveterinary/safetyhealth/recallswithdrawals/

  2. Is the recall for only these shown or all Dingo products?
