Nature’s Variety has announced a voluntary recall on their Prairie Beef Meal & Barley Medley Kibble formula for dogs, due to an “off-odor” that may develop over time in some bags.
Here’s what they are saying:
At Nature’s Variety, we make every effort to ensure that all of our products meet the highest quality standards. We’ve recently found that some bags of Prairie Beef Kibble Canine have an “off-odor” smell. This product is not contaminated in any way, but is not remaining fresh for the shelf life of the product. Not all bags are affected and the “off-odor” smell may develop over time. To be sure that our customers only receive the freshest and highest quality product possible, we have decided to voluntarily recall all Prairie Beef kibble from the marketplace.
