    Excerpt from link provided in above post.

    Why is the FDA issuing this alert?
    The FDA is issuing this alert because these three lots of Darwin’s Natural Pet Products raw dog food represent a serious threat to human and animal health and are adulterated under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act because they contain Salmonella. Because these products are sold and stored frozen, and the FDA is concerned that people may still have them in their possession.
    The FDA considers the actions taken by Arrow Reliance to remove violative product from the marketplace to meet the regulatory definition of a recall. However, the firm has not issued public notification, and the FDA is not confident that the firm’s customer notifications are effective for this ongoing recall. The FDA continues to work with Arrow Reliance, doing business as Darwin’s Natural Pet Products, on recalling the remaining products from these lots.

    If you look at Darwin’s note about this you’ll see all these lots have been used already. Darwin also emailed everyone of their customers about this issue. They were also not allowed to do independent testing of the samples the fda had to be sure of the contamination as the fda refused. The fda also refused to work with the company on sending out another warning to the buying customers from back in nov-dec.
    when Darwin refused to allow the fda to have all their customers information so they could be alerted (privacy policy AND they had already alerted the customers anyway) they threaten Darwin with this warning. No dogs were affected nor were any humans. All food has already been consumed or used so. Kind of a pointless warning really.
