Pet Food Recalls February 2013

There have been several recalls this month, and in the past week particularly, so I decided to combine them all into one post so that you can get all the information you need in one spot. Here’s what I’ve found:

baked dog treats

If you have purchased any of the affected treats, please discontinue feeding and return to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Also, consider baking your own dog treats! Here’s a recipe shared by policyholder Kathy G.

2 cups whole wheat flour (or other if your dog is allergic)
1 cup rolled oats (plain oatmeal)
1/3 c. peanut butter
1 1/4 c. hot water
Mix well, knead, roll out and cut out with cookie cutter or make 1″ balls and press down. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350* for 40 minutes.

About Stacy @Trupanion

Stacy Kowalchuk is a dog mom to her rescued Whippet-mix, Ellie. During the week, you can find Stacy surfing (the internet, that is) and managing Trupanion's presence in the social media world. In her free time, Stacy likes to bake, especially cupcakes! To balance her culinary affinity, she also likes to stay active, especially with activities that include her dog such as hiking and going to dog parks.
