Bil-Jac Dog Food Recall

Bil-Jac pulls 6-pound bags of Adult Select dog food because of mold

Bil-Jac dog food recallDog food manufacturer Bil-Jac Foods of Medina, Ohio, announced a limited product withdrawal of its 6-pound Adult Select Formula Dog Food from retailers’ stores and warehouses due to a few reports of mold in one batch (256 cases/four bags per case).
Only batch number 1792-02 of the dry food is affected, and the expiration date on the bags is Dec. 27, 2013. A total of 1,024 bags were in the affected batch.

"We’ve only found mold in a few bags; most of the batch was fine,” says Dr. Allen Bingham, a staff veterinarian for Bil-Jac Foods.

The yet-to-be-determined mold in some of the bags was caused by higher moisture content in the food, according to a statement on the company’s website. In the past, other companies have initiated similar pet food recalls because of aflatoxins produced by the Aspergillus fungus.

"An outside laboratory is currently testing the food in the affected bags, and we are trying to make sure we know what’s going on; we’re being overly cautious,” Dr. Bingham says. "We are trying to do the right thing.”

"Your dog's health is of paramount importance to us, and you can continue to trust Bil-Jac for the absolute best nutrition,” notes the company’s website.

Those with questions about refunds or returns can call 800-321-1002 x239, and ask for Shannon, during business hours, Monday to Friday, EDT.

The full company statement can be found at the Bil-Jac website.
