Nature's Variety, made by Menu Foods, has had a lot of recalls over the last several months. I had two bags, one each of the raw venison and the bison. Today I was getting a medallion ready for Kiva (the bison and venison have not been on recall like the other flavors....most of which were chicken for salmonella). The medallion looked and smelled fine until I pulled it apart. I almost puked from the putrid smell that came out. I tossed both bags in the garbage.

I purchased my meat grinder last week and made a batch of fresh, raw food but wanted to use up what I had in the freezer for breakfast. My Cairnadoes are back to eating only food made at home by me.

My suspicions that Kiva might have her liver problem from eating commercially prepared foods is now even greater. I will ask the vet tomorrow when Kiva goes in for her monthly adjustment.

What little bit of trust I had in makers of raw and fresh pet foods is now pretty evaporated.

That's sad.  Would you post any recalls that you know of in the recall forum? 

It's good you have a new grinder!
