Midland, Mich. -- Natural pet-food manufacturer Wysong Corp. recalled more batches of dry dog food because of moisture contamination that led to mold in other batches.
-- Natural pet-food manufacturer Wysong Corp. recalled more batches of dry dog food because of moisture contamination that led to mold in other batches.
Wysong notified distributors and retailers to stop selling food with three more lot numbers: Maintenance 090817, Senior 090811 and Synorgon 090629. Those three lots join five others recalled earlier in the month: Maintenance 090617, 090624, 090706, and 090720 and Senior 090623.
Previously, online commenters on animal-focused blogs and Web sites complained that Wysong informed retailers and distributors weeks before announcing the recall nationally to consumers on the Web. Wysong then directly answered Web-site visitors’ questions about the issue.
“When we determined a recall was necessary, we put our focus into alerting those that actually received the products, not those who had no reasonable chance of acquiring the affected products,” says the notice in response to the selectively publicized recall notice.
Wysong believes the mold likely was caused by a faulty moisture-checking device and high heat and humidity during manufacturing in June, July and August.
