It appears from the latest news within our industry that all recalls are from Glutens imported from China, a protein source that is extracted from Wheat or Rice. The wheat or rice is not the issue, but the glutens extracted, stored, and then imported from China. Again, CANIDAE does not use Glutens in any form, and we do not import any ingredients from China or overseas.
CANIDAE Pet Foods also does not produce cuts and gravies, pouches, and does not contain corn, wheat or soybeans in any of our products or formulations, and all ingredients are of US origin, meaning proudly raised and grown in the USA.
It looks to me like the problem is imported ingredients, as the Merrick website has similar information.
Innova is made by Natura, who has this information on their website:
Furthermore, Naturaâ€™s canned foods are made exclusively in a Menu Foods South Dakota plant, rather than in the affected Kansas and New Jersey plants.
Personally, I don't trust that, which sucks because my cats love EVO
Timberwolf Organics (which, by the way, is not organic) says they are not part of the recall, but that's it - no other info.
Wellness does use imported rice, but they don't specify from where and they don't say what company's factories make the food.
Chicken Soup brand does not use wheat, wheat gluten or rice protein concentrate however, they make Natural Balance and that was recalled. they claim they have no cross-contamination
