What Pet Foods Have Been Recalled?: A Link to Updated Lists and Iams and Eukanuba Animal Testing Reminder

Well, the first list is produced by the FDA, so I can’t say it will always be correct, but as of now, this page serves as the best source of a listing of all recalled pet foods.

IAMS AND EUKANUBA ANIMAL TESTING REMINDER:

If you’re opposed to animal testing then you shouldn’t be using Iams anyway. This includes the Iams product – Eukanuba. Why? Well, they support and engage in animal testing. For more information on this see http://www.iamscruelty.com/introduction.asp

Here is just a brief snippet of what Iams has been found guilty of doing in terms of animal testing:

“For nearly 10 months in 2002 and early 2003, a PETA investigator went undercover at an Iams contract testing laboratory and discovered a dark and sordid secret beneath the wholesome image of the dog- and cat-food manufacturer: dogs gone crazy from intense confinement to barren steel cages and cement cells, dogs left piled on a filthy paint-chipped floor after having chunks of muscle hacked from their thighs; dogs surgically debarked; horribly sick dogs and cats languishing in their cages, neglected and left to suffer with no veterinary care.”

A better option is to buy from cruelty free dog and cat food companies, or those dog and cat food companies that do not engage in animal testing.
