Canine Caviar is recalling less than 1500 cans in circulation nationally (not cases) and expects to have this collected within 48 hours of April 27, 2007. This unexpected situation is due to the fact that our canned food co-packer was using ingredients that were not authorized by Canine Caviar. Our canned foods have not officially tested positive, but we are recalling the following three can SKUâ€™s: 13.2 oz Gourmet Turkey â€“ UPC 674555222134, 13.2 oz Gourmet Beaver â€“ UPC 674555221328, 5.5 oz Gourmet Beaver â€“ UPC 674555221557.
All of the Gourmet Duck and Venison Tripe in the 13.2 oz cans are made to our standards and do not have any grains in them and are not part of the recall.
During the next few weeks, Canine Caviar will be out of stock on these three cans and recommends using the canned duck or venison tripe.
NONE OF CANINE CAVIARâ€™S DRY FOODS, TREATS OR SUPPLEMENTS ARE AFFECTED BY THE RECALL. THESE PRODUCTS ARE PACKED AT A DIFFERENT FACILITY. WE HAVE WRITTEN DOCUMTATION PROVING THESE PRODUCTS ARE MANUFACTURED TO OUR STANDARDS.
Please return all cans of turkey and beaver to your store for a full refund. Please email Canine Caviar at email@example.com for free dry food and treat coupons for this inconvenience.
We apologize and have taken steps to increase quality control to guarantee that correct ingredients go into each can.
The Mulligan Stew website states that they are not part of any recall when I just looked, but that was a letter dated from March 20th. Apparently they just haven't updated their site to recall these two canned foods?

Harmony Farms Cans And Biscuits Recalled Due To Product Tampering
We regret to inform you that Sierra Pet Products has announced a voluntary recall of its Harmony Farms canned foods and dog biscuits due to product tampering.
Sierra Pet Products was made aware of the product tampering when American Nutrition, Inc. (ANI), the manufacturer of all Harmony Farms cans and biscuits, informed the Company that they had been adding rice protein concentrate to Harmony Farms canned dog and cat foods without the Companyâ€™s approval.
It appears that ANI had been adding the unauthorized rice protein concentrate to Harmony Farms products for some time and only told the Company when the FDA was about to conclude that some of ANIâ€™s rice protein concentrate (Supplied by Wilber-Ellis) was contaminated with Melamine.
Important Facts about the recall:
â€¢ Sierra Pet Products has elected to cease doing business with ANI effective immediately and remove all its cans and biscuits from retailerâ€™s shelves.
â€¢ Products recalled include all Harmony Farms canned dog and cat foods, and all Harmony Farms Health Bar biscuits.
â€¢ No Harmony Farms product has tested positive for melamine.
â€¢ There have been no reported illness of any dog or cat as a result of consuming either our food or biscuits
â€¢ All Harmony Farms dry dog and cat foods are safe for consumption
â€¢ Consumers who have unused or partially used packages of any Harmony Farms recalled products should return them to their place of purchase for a complete refund.
We have informed our retail partners and the FDA about this action, and will be cooperating with them to complete this recall quickly.
As a relatively new brand, Harmony Farms is in the process of building trust with pet parents and this cannot be accomplished if we are unable to trust our manufacturer.
We intend to re-introduce our canned products and dog biscuits as soon as we can obtain a manufacturing partner who shares our values of honesty and integrity.
