Voluntary Recall Notice - Lafeber Pellet-Berries Foods

February 1, 2018 - Lafeber Company is voluntarily recalling its Sunny Orchard Pellet-Berries Foods for Parakeets, Cockatiels, and Parrots. The Pellet-Berries recall includes all 12.5 oz sizes for Parakeet, Cockatiel, and Parrot, and 3.5 lbs for Parrots. All of these foods were available from Drs. Foster and Smith:

Drs. Foster and Smith Item Number Food
75861 Lafeber Sunny Orchard Pellet-Berries Parakeet Food - 12.5 oz.
75862 Lafeber Sunny Orchard Pellet-Berries Cockatiel Food - 12.5 oz.
75863 Lafeber Sunny Orchard Pellet-Berries Parrot Food - 12.5 oz.
75864 Lafeber Sunny Orchard Pellet-Berries Parrot Food - 3.5 lbs.

Lafeber Company initiated this voluntary recall because their Pellet-Berries packaging experienced an unexpected seal malfunction that enables mold to grow in the Pellet-Berries Foods. According to Lafeber, they had only two reported cases of mold out of 53,299 Pellet-Berries tubs sold in the past two years (both cases were reported late last week). While this mold growth is a rare occurrence, it is too much of a risk for your beloved feathered friends.

To ensure the health of all birds who eat Pellet-Berries, Lafeber has recalled all Pellet-Berries and will issue a refund or send replacement product once they receive your purchased Pellet-Berries product.

For a refund or replacement, please contact Drs. Foster and Smith for instructions on returning your unused product - call 1-800-381-7179 or send an email to CustomerService@DrsFosterSmith.com. Or, you may contact Lafeber directly at 1-800-842-6445 or info1@lafebermail.com. New Pellet-Berries (packaged in bags rather than tubs) will be available in approximately two weeks.

Please note: NO Nutri-Berries or Avi-Cakes or Pellets or any other Lafeber products are involved with this recall.

United Pet Group/Spectrum Brands Digest-eeze Rawhide Chews

June 13, 2017-- United Pet Group (UPG), a division of Spectrum Brands, Inc. is voluntarily recalling multiple brands of packages of rawhide dog chew products that were distributed to retail outlets and sold online in the U.S. This includes Digest-eeze brand rawhide chews available at Drs. Foster and Smith.

Only UPG products with lot codes listed on the back of the package that start with AH, AV, A, AI, AO, or AB, and which list expiration dates from 06/01/2019 through 05/31/2020 are affected by this recall. The recall involves the Digest-eeze brand products described below.

Item # Description
91241 8" DIGEST-EEZE PORK/BEEF/CHICKEN BONE
91242 5-PK 5" DIGEST-EEZE THIN ROLLS
91244 9" DIGEST-EEZE BONE

91240 20-PK DIGEST-EEZE PORK & BEEF TWISTS

The recall was initiated after UPG identified that certain rawhide manufacturing facilities outside the U.S. were using an anti-microbial chemical as a processing aid. This chemical is approved for cleaning food processing equipment, but has not been approved in the U.S. as a processing aid in the production of rawhide chews for dogs.

UPG received very limited reports of pet illness based on the volume of possibly affected rawhide chew products manufactured and distributed. The primary complaint received from consumers was that the affected product had an unpleasant odor. Diarrhea and vomiting were also reported.

If you have purchased any of these items from Drs. Foster and Smith, and the back of the package matches the identified lot and expiration dating, please dispose of any remaining product and contact us for a full refund at 1-800-381-7179 or at CustomerService@DrsFosterSmith.com
