Merrick Dog Treats Recall 2010


Merrick dog treats may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria according the the United States Food and Drug Administration.

On January 14, 2010, the FDA issued a warning to consumers not to use Merrick Beef Filet Squares distributed by Merrick Pet Care of Amarillo, Texas and marked with a “Best by 111911” package date.

The suspect product was distributed nationwide through both local and Internet retailers.

Complete details regarding this alert are available within the actual FDA News Release dated January 14, 2010.

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

Dog treat alerts involving Salmonella contamination are potentially serious matters… for both humans and pets.

So, be sure to tell everyone you know.

    I would definitely recommend Merrick over Blue Buffalo. I’ve found some pretty sketchy things in BB products – I purchased a package of biscuits with bugs in the bag and I got a back of cat food that had mold. I won’t use Blue products ever again. There have also been a lot of complaints over the past year or so about dogs getting sick on Blue foods. This was written by a vet student:

    Help! After discovering Maggots in my Purina One Bag, I switched to Blue Lamb & Brown rice. I figured it would be safer because it’s expensive, twice as much as Purina One and hopefully won’t include stuff from China in there! Please let me know if this the right choice, or should I have gotten Merrick Grain-free? I have 4 Mini Schnauzers. I read good things about Merrick, but now I just read they they’re included in the Recall list of 2010! Anyone know?? Thanks..peace:)

  • Hi Seanhenry… I’m not aware of any recalls from Merrick since January 30, 2011 for some of their treats products. By the way, I took the liberty of removing your public email address from this post to protect your privacy. It’s never a good idea on the Internet to display your email address on any public forum.

    It seems like Merrick is recalling a lot of their products. Merrick manufactures healthy grain free food and treats made in USA. It is hard to find healthy dog treats made in America (not China). Is it safe to feed your dog anything but human food?
