So in my quest to find quality dog/cat food and after investing a small fortune I settled on the Blue Buffalo products many months back.. Get a message this weekend that there was a voluntary recall on a few of the dog foods for possible excessive Vitamin D. Of course it is the the type I use (Blue Buffalo Chicken for Large Breed) and of course I don't keep my food in the bags and store in air tight dog food containers (past ant issues led me to this) and the bag I am using has long since been tossed in the burning barrel. So now I am not sure about my code. I have noticed no significant ill effects but am just so frustrated at the hands of others making not only the food our pets eat but us too! I am always paranoid about things and have incidents like this to only reinforce this paranoia.. I also have goats and chickens and am aware of horror stories from livestock feed resulting in death and illness in livestock also (land o lakes and alpaca deaths, purina and chicken deaths/illness) the lists go on and on. I am aware that many preach the raw food diet but I would probably still find issue with that as well since we have no idea what us humans are ingesting from the grocery every day! I am not sure what to do and look at possibly switching out dog foods again.. I have been on everything from Iams, Eukanuba, Science Diet, Nutro, Wellness, and recently Blue Buffalo.. not sure where I am gonna go next.
