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:

United Pet Group Voluntarily Recalls Pro-Pet Adult Daily Vitamin Supplement for Dogs Because of Possible Salmonella Health Risk

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –- June 22, 2010 – United Pet Group, Cincinnati, Ohio is voluntarily recalling all unexpired lots of its PRO-PET ADULT DAILY VITAMIN Supplement tablets for Dogs due to possible Salmonella contamination.  The Food and Drug Administration is aware of this recall.

The product was sold nationally at various retailers.  The product comes in 100-count white plastic bottles with a light blue label, and UPC code 26851-01800.  These products are being removed from retail stores and consumers should immediately stop feeding these supplements to their pets.  The affected products are those with expiration dates on or before “06/[20]13″.

Welcome, Mona and I think you've found a place where you can find out what pet foods, treats and supplements are recalled so stay tuned! Yes, pets are part of our families and we want the foods we give them to be safe. It's not too much to ask. Thanks for stopping by!


you never hear this stuff on the news until a dog dies but as soon as any people food is recalled we hear about it right a way to most of us our pets are our kids and we would do any thing for them even give then vitamin when are they going to get it we love are dog, cats, bird and whatever pet we have and care for they are our baby's they should get the same care as us people it's not cheap caring for them which we pay out of pocket for

My pet dog died from acute renal failure after consuming numerous ProPet Tablets. We will be investigating with our vet.


What is the most common word used when referring to the commercial pet food industry? RECALL!
