Please review the following message from Alan Talarsky, Environmental Scientist 1, Food and Drug Safety Program, DHSS regarding the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Class 1 Recall of LiveSmart Weight Management Chicken and Brown Rice Dog Food.

SmartPak has initiated a voluntary recall of a single production run of the LiveSmart Weight Management Chicken and Brown Rice Dog Food.

The particular lot of food recalled included rice protein concentrate that was supplied by Wilbur-Ellis, the same company that supplied rice protein concentrate contaminated with Melamine to Natural Balance. This was the first time that this supplier purchased and used rice protein concentrate from Wilbur-Ellis. No previous lots were affected, nor is rice protein concentrate used in any other formulas of LiveSmart dog or cat foods.

Less than 1200 pounds of product are affected by this recall. SmartPak has notified every affected pet owner via both phone and email.

The firm has not had any reports of injury to any dogs. Dogs who have consumed the LiveSmart Weight Management food and show signs of kidney failure (such as loss of appetite, lethargy and vomiting) should be seen by a veterinarian.

SmartPak has temporarily suspended further distribution of the LiveSmart Weight Management Chicken and Brown Rice Dog Food until further notice.

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