Nature’s Variety pet food problem called ‘isolated incident’
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has concluded that a recent problem with a batch of Nature’s Variety raw pet food was “an isolated incident,” the agency told Examiner.com March 15.
The FDA’s comment came one month after Nature’s Variety announced a recall of one batch of Instinct Raw Organic Chicken Formula medallions and patties with a "Best if Used By" date of 10/04/13.
Nature’s Variety said it recalled the food “because pieces of clear plastic may be found in some bags and could cause a potential choking risk to pets. The source of plastic has been identified and the issue has been resolved.” The firm did not disclose the source of the plastic.
Nature's Variety, which became aware of the problem after receiving a consumer complaint, said it has received no reports of pets being harmed by the recalled food.
The company describes the food as a complete and balanced diet for both cats and dogs.
