One comment

  1. Affects dry cat food as well. (My retailer sid expect delays for canned food like EVO 95)..

    “As an additional safety measure, we are broadening our voluntary recall to include all dry dog and cat food products made on this single manufacturing line in the Jan-Mar, 2013 timeframe.”
