Over 35 Brands of Pet Food Recalled. Illness Reported In California.
We all love our pets and want the best for them. Well, at least I know I do. When my little dog developed kidney issues, we had to swap his food to a special science diet, and it’s not cheap. But then again, regular dog food isn’t cheap. The last thing we need is a recall, but that’s what we got.

What Should I Do If I Have Recalled Pet Food?
