We use Life Abundance dog food and have not experienced the dreaded food poisoning or recall situations so many other pet owners have experienced. We highly recommend using Life Abundance but, we also realize not everyone is using it.
To help serve all of the pets we would like to offer information about a remarkable notification service offered by the United States Food and Drug Administration (USDA Animal Health Pet Safety Link) while it is not able to include all possible resources it will provide the most information of any other service we have found so far.

Pet Food Recall Alerts — Pet Food Recall Alerts and Notifications
If you would like to review a current list of Dog Food Recalls, Market Withdrawals and Safety Alerts you can find a list of brands and distributors organized by date the item was added or reported.
It is remarkable how many brands are susceptible to an outbreak of dangerous conditions regarding foods and products. These are a few of the dog food companies who alerted customers about a recall.

Another topic worth noting is the potential danger of everyday foods we eat which have been known to cause health issues for dogs. Some of these include:
- Grapes and Raisins
- Macadamia Nuts
