Hills PET food WITHDRAWAL

Many PetSmart stores have  posted notices on store shelves of a "Hill Pet food withdrawal".

Hills Food has remained silent on the matter and of course, savvy pet parents have to wonder why.

Avoiding FDA mandated recalls has become the way the pet food industry tries to negate BAD PRESS... but that can also be said about negating  liability, culpability and responsibility .

The PetSmart notices seem to be the only information provided to consumer.

NOT a smart move.

Well folks, they simply "forgot" this is the age of computers and communication is not as difficult as it used to be,

SHAME ON HILLS.

This is a list of what Pet Smart has posted as being "withdrawn".

What is a "withdrawal"?

The FDA defines a voluntary market withdrawal as:

Market withdrawal: occurs when a product has a minor violation that would not be subject to FDA legal action. The firm removes the product from the market or corrects the violation. For example, a product removed from the market due to tampering, without evidence of manufacturing or distribution problems, would be a market withdrawal.

Numerous sources have stated “product mislabeling” as the reason for the withdrawal, though this information has not been confirmed or denied by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, who have remained quiet about the product withdrawal, despite numerous questions posed to them by concerned customers.

If you currently have ANY of the products listed above, it is recommended that you return to the place of purchase, as the reason for the product withdrawal is yet unknown.

Hill’s has asserted that their food is safe to feed as directed, and has offered NO EXPLANATION as to why these products were withdrawn.

Feel free to call them at Hill’s Customer Service Center --Hill’s Pet Nutrition at (800) 354-4557.
