Evanger’s Dog and Cat Food Warning

FDA Suspends Temporary Emergency Permit for Evanger’s

Recently the FDA and USDA announced suspension of a permit for Evanger’s Dog and Cat Food Company.

In the statement the FDA reports that:

“Evanger’s, operating in Wheeling, Illinois, deviated from the prescribed process, equipment, product shipment, and recordkeeping requirements in the production of the company’s thermally processed low acid canned food (LACF) products. The deviations in their processes and documentation could result in under-processed pet foods, which can allow the survival and growth of Clostridium botulinum (C. botulinum), a bacterium that causes botulism in some animals as well as in humans.”

A recall has not been announced. But please do keep in mind the possibility of Clotridium botulinum infection in cases presenting with flaccid paralysis who have ingested Evanger’s canned foods.
