Second, we wanted to make sure everyone was aware of a food recall by Nature's Variety. Nature's Variety voluntarily recalled one batch of Instinct Raw Organic Chicken Formula dog and cat food with a "Best if Used By" date of 10/4/13.
There may be pieces of plastic in some bags of cat and dog food, which could pose a choking hazard to pets. The company asserts that the source of the problem has been identified and resolved.
Included in the one batch of recalled food are:
- UPC# 7 69949 60137 1 - Instinct Raw Organic Chicken Formula medallions, 3 pound bag.

All recalled products contain a "Best if Used By" date of 10/4/13. You can find the "Best if Used By" date on the back of the bag under the "Contact Us" information.
The recalled batch was sold in retail stores as well as online in the United States and Canada. So far, there have been no reports of any pets being injured or harmed.
Anyone feeding the recalled product should stop, and watch their pet's health. Take your pet to the veterinarian if any health concerns arise.
You can exchange your bag of recalled food or get a full refund for it by bringing the recalled food in its original packaging or proof of purchase back to the retailer where you bought it.
