    Just an FYI. Imas pet food, both dog and cat, has put out a recall on some of its dry food that may be contaminated with salmonella. Check Imas web site for the codes on your food and toss them.

    I don't see anything about a recall on that link. I even typed "recall" in Search and nothing came up.

    Iams is crap so this is no surprise. Acana is an excellent food. One of the best on the market.

    Actually, when you call my vet the "on hold spiel" talks about how you shouldn't handle pets food or treats.

    WTF are they putting in our pet food?

    I had a sick dog, had to make everything from scratch, time consuming, really hope I don't have to do that again.

    I have 3 outdoor cats. I hope the birds and other critters do not get salmonella.
    Just rolled out to my workshop to give the cats some lap time.

    Kinda cool out here so I cranked up the heat a bit.
    They have a heated place to sleep and hang out.
