Chenango dry pet food recall is expanded

May 21, 2007

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the expansion of a voluntary dry pet food recall initiated by Chenango Valley Pet Foods.

The original recalled foods, sold under various brand names, were manufactured with a shipment of rice protein concentrate that was possibly contained with melamine -- a chemical used to make plastics and fertilizer.

The FDA said the Sherburne, N.Y., company has expanded the recall to include various pet foods that don't contain the rice protein concentrate but that might have been cross-contaminated while being processed in the same factories.

The recall includes Doctors Foster & Smith lamb and brown rice adult dog food, Shop Rite Redi-Mix dog food, Lick Your Chops kitten and cat food, Shep Chunk Style dog food, 8 in 1 Ferret Ultra-Blend Advanced Nutrition Diet, Bulk Lamb & Brown Rice Formula dog food, Health Diet cat food chicken & rice dinner and Evolve Kitten Formula.

Consumers may contact the company at 610-821-0608. Production codes and other recall information are available at
