WellPet LLC, the makers of Wellness brand dog foods, has today announced a voluntary withdrawal of certain bags of Wellness brand Small Breed Adult Health Dry dog food due to higher than normal moisture levels. Food packaged with too high a level of moisture run the risk of growing mold.
The following notice was posted by Wellness Natural Pet Foods’ Facebook page, alerting followers to the limited recall. If you feed your dog Wellness brand food, check your label carefully and compare to the information provided below.
At Wellness, your complete satisfaction is always our top priority. Only the best tasting, most nutritious food will do for our furry family members. With that in mind we want to let you know that we have discovered that a small amount of our 12lb Small Breed Adult Health Dry Dog Food with the “Best By” date of August 18, 2013 did not meet our high standards. A small batch of the product with this specific date code was found to be higher in moisture than our recipe calls for. High moisture may cause food to mold before its expiration date, but poses no health risk.
We want you and your pet to be completely satisfied, so we are asking those who may have this limited supply of food to contact us for a replacement. No other dates, bag sizes or recipes are affected. Thanks for your support of Wellness, and we apologize for any inconvenience. If you have any questions, please call us at 1-800-225-0904. We’ll be open at 8am eastern on Wednesday morning.
