We deeply regret the concern and anxiety this update will cause both our loyal customers and the pet community.

Based on our ongoing investigation and extensive review of our manufacturing and quality assurances testing procedures, we recently announced a voluntary recall of eight Sensible Choice dry dog food products and seven Kasco dry dog and cat food products due to tainted Chinese rice protein concentrate.

A very limited number of Sensible Choice and Kasco products in this recent recall tested positive for trace levels of a melamine derivative, so we are voluntarily recalling the following products out of an abundance of caution.

We have received no confirmed cases of melamine related illness in pets eating Sensible Choice and Kasco products affected by this recall.

These eight Sensible Choice dry dog food products and seven Kasco dry dog and cat food products with Best By date codes between July 28, 2007 to April 30, 2008 are being voluntarily recalled:

SENSIBLE CHOICE® (available in pet specialty stores nationwide)
- SENSIBLE CHOICE® Chicken and Rice Adult (Dry Dog Food)
- SENSIBLE CHOICE® Chicken and Rice Reduced (Dry Dog Food)

- SENSIBLE CHOICE® Chicken and Rice Large Breed Puppy (Dry Dog Food)
- SENSIBLE CHOICE® NATURAL BLEND Adult (Dry Dog Food)

Based on today’s announcement, pet owners should stop feeding their pets the eight Sensible Choice dry dog food products and seven Kasco dry dog and dry cat food products listed. Pet owners should consult with a veterinarian if they are concerned about the health of their pet.

The safety and nutritional quality of Royal Canin USA pet food is our company’s top priority because we understand that the health of pets comes first.
