Canine Caviar is voluntarily recalling less than 1,500 cans of its Gourmet Turkey and Gourmet Beaver. The company expects to have the cans collected within 48 hours of April 27.
Free coupons are being offered for the recall inconvenience.
Canine Caviar said it is recalling the food because its canned food co-packer was using ingredients that were not authorized by them.
The recalled products include:
• 13.2 oz Gourmet Turkey – UPC 674555222134
• 13.2 oz Gourmet Beaver – UPC 674555221328
• 5.5 oz Gourmet Beaver – UPC 674555221557
dated best by Aug. 21, 2008 or later.
The company’s Gourmet Duck and Venison Tripe in the 13.2 oz cans do not contain grains and are not part of the voluntary recall.
Canine Caviar said it will be out of stock on these three cans for the next few weeks and recommends using the canned duck or venison tripe.
The company also said that its dry foods, treats and supplements are not affected by the recall and that the products are packed at a different facility.
Canine Caviar said it has taken steps to increase quality control to ensure this does not happen in the future and is demanding production records from all of their co-packers for all of their formulas before they are shipped to them.
There have been no illnesses reported related to feeding these formulas, according to the company.
Canine Caviar asks that all cans of turkey and beaver be returned to the store for a full refund.
For the inconvenience, Canine Caviar is offering free dry food and treat coupons. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
