These brands have pet food recalls and if you buy from them, return the food to the store! Most pet stores do give exchanges or refunds.

Three brands of pet food have been recalled in recent days including two kinds of dog food and one of cat food. Premium Edge recalled two varieties of cat food after some pets became sick. The foods were found to be lacking in Thiamine, also known as Vitamin B1. Symptoms displayed by the affected cats were “neurological in nature,” according to the company’s press release, including tremors and weakness. The recalled foods were Premium Edge Finicky Adult Cat (RAF0501A22X 18lb., RAF0501A2X 6 lb.) and Premium Edge Hairball (RAH0501A22X 18 lb., RAH0501A2X 6lb.)

The dog food recalls were made by Wysong and Nutro. Wysong recalled five lots of dry dog food made in June and July because it was contaminated with mold. Wysong, which sells “natural” pet products said the problem with the food “stems from unusually high heat and humidity on those summer dates … combined with a malfunctioning moisture checking device.” The recalls includes Wysong Maintenance (lots 090617, 090624, 090706, 090720) and Wysong Senior (lot 090623).

Nutro recalled three kinds of puppy chow that may contain pieces of a plastic hard hat that fell into the production line. The food was distributed through Petco and Petsmart stores in the West and included Nutro Ultra (UPC 79105 51313, 4.5 lb. and UPC 79105 51315, 30 lb.) and Nutro Natural Choice Chicken Meal, Rice and Oatmeal Formula Small Bites Puppy (UPC# 79105 23050, 5 lb.)
