Please review the following messages from Alan Talarsky, Environmental Scientist 1, Food and Drug Safety Program, DHSS regarding the market withdrawal of certain pet foods produced by Nature Balance Pet Foods due to alleged adverse health reactions reported by pet owners.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) was informed on April 16, 2007, that Natural Balance Pet Foods has received consumer complaints regarding the Venison & Brown Rice Dry Dog Food, and Venison & Green Pea Dry Cat Foods. The company does not know the cause of the problems, but has received reports of animals vomiting and experiencing kidney problems. Although the company is stating that the problems seem to be focused on one particular lot, as a precautionary measure, the company is pulling all dates of Venison & Brown Rice Dry Dog Food and Venison & Green Pea Dry Cat Food from the shelves.

The company is advising consumers to discontinue feeding all Venison and Brown Rice Dry Dog Food, and Venison and Green Pea Dry Cat Food.

The FDA is working closely with Natural Balance and is actively investigating this problem. There is no indication at this time whether this is related to the ongoing pet food recalls. For more information, please see: http://www.naturalbalanceinc.com/

No action is required of local health departments at this time. If any requests for assistance are received from the FDA, the Food and Drug Safety Program will contact you. For additional information regarding FDA-posted recalls, please click on the weblink below.
