Pet Vitamin Recall: United Pet Group Pro-Pet Daily

by Mary Haight on June 23, 2010

Their website had no notice and no listing for this product. In fact, the only Pro-Pet product line advertised was strictly for grooming. Perhaps the reason for this will become clear later.

This news arrived late last night:
