Breeder’s Choice Pet Foods of Irwindale, Calif., backtracked Friday, admitting that an undetermined amount of recalled AvoDerm Natural Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Adult Dog Formula in 26-pound bags may have been sold to pet owners.

Recalled AvoDerm dog food
An undetermined amount of recalled AvoDerm Natural Lamb Meal & Brown Rice dog food may have been sold to pet owners.
The company earlier this week reported that virtually all of the recalled food had been seized before delivery. A “couple of cases” may have gotten to stores but were returned, the company stated at the time.

“As we dug deeper and deeper, we found some packages made retail,” said Mark Newberg, director of corporate affairs and communications for parent company Central Garden & Pet. “Whether or not they moved off shelves, we don’t know.”

A conference call later today may answer that question, he added.

The food was recalled because of possible salmonella contamination in a “singular, isolated manufacturing batch,” the company reported.

The bags have “best by” dates of 28 Aug 2013, 29 Aug 2013 and 30 Aug 2013. The product code is 1000065074 and the UPC code is 0 5290702043 8.

Consumers and retailers may call AvoDerm consumer service at 866-500-6286 for more information.
