Dear Royal Canin USA Customer,

It is with sincere regret that I inform you of a new and unfortunate development with some of our pet food products.

Although we have no confirmed cases of illness in pets, we have decided to voluntarily remove the following dry pet food products that contain rice protein concentrate due to the presence of a melamine derivative.

ROYAL CANIN SENSIBLE CHOICE® (available in pet specialty stores nationwide)

- Chicken Meal & Rice Formula Senior
- Lamb Meal & Rice Formula Puppy
- Lamb Meal & Rice Formula Adult
- Lamb Meal & Rice Formula Senior
- Rice & Catfish Meal Formula Adult

ROYAL CANIN VETERINARY DIETâ„¢ (available only in veterinary clinics)

- Canine Early Cardiac EC 22â„¢
- Canine Skin Support SS21â„¢
- Feline Hypoallergenic HP23â„¢

We are taking this proactive stance to voluntarily recall these products to avoid any confusion for our customers about which Royal Canin USA products are safe and which products may be affected.

Pet owners should immediately stop feeding their pets the Royal Canin USA dry pet food products listed above. Pet owners should consult with a veterinarian if they are concerned about the health of their pet. No other Royal Canin diets are affected by this recall and CONTINUE TO BE safe for pets to eat.

In addition, Royal Canin USA will no longer use any Chinese suppliers for any of our vegetable proteins.

This decision to recall some of our dry pet food products is driven by our philosophy that the “Pet Comes Firstâ€

This ENTIRE pet food thing is really starting to upset me, my cat doesn't eat the spa select kitten food, but she does eat spa select, and she will not eat raw

I don't feed kibble, for which I am especially thankful now, but this whole thing is getting terrifying. Especially now the good brands are starting to be recalled. When it was just Ol Roy and stuff like that, nobody was truly surprised. But Natural Balance? And isn't Blue Buffalo good? And Royal Canin. Very scary.
