Message from the Company
The following message was taken from a letter sent to Darwin’s customers by company founder, Gary Tashjian.
“We believe most of this product has already been consumed, for the most part without incident, as most dogs’ and cats’ digestive systems are able to process pathogens such as Salmonella without harm.
“We are aware of a single case of a pet being affected, which involved a dog who was already ill with other conditions.”
