Caution Tape

O’Neal’s Feeders Supply of Deridder, Louisiana has announced a voluntary dog food recall involving one of its products due to contamination with aflatoxin.

The event was reported by the Associated Press on December 12, 2011 and involved products distributed in Louisiana and Texas.

The FDA has confirmed the Cargill recall in its latest news bulletin.

Aflatoxin is a toxin produced by a certain species of mold commonly found in cereal grains.

The products were manufactured between December 1, 2010 and December 1, 2011.

According to the Associated Press, no illnesses have been reported.

What to Watch For

According to a previous FDA news release…

“Pets that have consumed any of the above recalled products and exhibit symptoms of illness including sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish tint to the eyes or gums, or diarrhea should be seen by a veterinarian.”

What to Do

You can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.

Or go to http://www.fda.gov/petfoodcomplaints.

O’Neal’s Feeders Supply has suggested consumers return the recalled dog food for a full refund.

For more information, call the company at 800-256-2769.

    Diamond foods have been involved in recalls before.  I’m not comfortable with their plant.  Plus they are Cali based all the good ingredients are midwest.

    Aflatoxin is usually associated with mold in cereal grains (like corn, wheat, etc.). But only if a particular “lot” of raw material has been purchased by other pet food manufacturers.

    Unfortunately, knowing which companies actually purchased that same lot is impossible for any consumer to know.

    Thats my concern?!!?!?!? CROSS CONTAMINATION!!!! Also, what products would this be linked too?????

    Aflatoxin can affect many animals. But humans are generally considered more resistant to the affects of aflatoxin exposure.

    What about cross contamination in other products? How does this harm humans if inhaled?

    I agree with the Guest comment in reference to a refund for pet owners who may have fed this food to their dogs; I think there should be something in place to ensure that these companies should have to pay for any vet bills incurred due to the company’s negligence. On behalf of all the canine moms and dads we really appreciate the alerts.

    We feed our dogs Diamond Naturals, which has no wheat, soy, or corn.  There is rice, perhaps barley, as I don’t think a totally grain-free diet is in the best interest of the dogs.  This is sure getting out of hand, though.  So glad for the alerts.

    And what the hell are people supposed to do when their pet gets sick and has to go to the vet??? Screw getting a refund, I want veterinary costs.

    Thank Goodness someone is on top of this ! This will save thousands of pets lives . Oftentimes we don’t know and we continue to feed this bad stuff killing our own dog or maybe incurring thousands in vet bills . Thanks for your life saving mission ! My Bichon says “THANKS “

  • Gloria Merritt

    It was bad enough worrying about not seeing that the dog treats you bought were from China, including the chicken jerky and now this!  Thank You for helping us!

  • Ron Carver
