Recently, there are lot of cases recalling food products, not just human food but also pet food. What happened to this manufacturers? Good thing they recalled it as soon as they can.

This one actually seems kinda mild in comparison to all the others, but I'm glad Purina still chose to do the responsible thing.

Thanks for sharing this! I don't have cats, but know people who do, and I'm not sure what they feed.
