NEW RECALL: Evolve Dry Kitten Food Recalled
Evolve is recalling their dry kitten food formula with the Best Used By date of September 13, 2008.

Although no date is listed on the Evolve pet food recall page, we believe this has been posted within the last week. FDA does not list Evolve-brand food at all, just their Triumph canned food (which was a part of a previous recall).

It’s been added to our recall list. Unfortunately, it’s been more than 2 months since the food was made.
Evolve’s announcement says:

Evolve Kitten Food made on March 12, 2007 has now been included in [the recalled pet food] group.

As of today, 99.4% of the 27,560 lbs. of product made on March 12, 2007 (Best Used By Sep 13 08 ) has been accounted for and removed from sale. Currently there is 168 lbs. that has not been accounted for. The above 168 lbs. is a total of 9 units in 3# and 7# sizes.

NOTICE To All Concerned Pet Owners:

In the on-going FDA investigation of contaminated rice protein concentrate, the FDA has attempted to link other brands that might have possibly been affected due to potential cross contamination of ingredients. Evolve Kitten Food made on March 12, 2007 has now been included in this group.

As of today, 99.4% of the 27,560 lbs. of product made on March 12, 2007 (Best Used By Sep 13 08 ) has been accounted for and removed from sale. Currently there is 168 lbs. that has not been accounted for. The above 168 lbs. is a total of 9 units in 3# and 7# sizes. Based on the date of manufacture, retail information, consumer contact and expected daily consumption, we strongly believe ALL remaining products from this date have been safely consumed with no adverse effects.

The Evolve formulae do NOT contain any wheat gluten or rice protein concentrate, and the FDA tests confirmed that no melamine was present.

As a valuable Evolve customer, we want you to be aware of this situation despite the fact no melamine have been found by independent testing. This action is a precautionary measure only, as there is no evidence to suggest these products in any way pose a health hazard.

This action effects the March 12, 2007 manufacture date and product only. No other Evolve products have been or will be involved. Feel free to contact us at nationalsales@triumphpet.com with any questions or concerns.

Thank you.
There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.
