Precautionary Rice Protein Recall: Drs. Foster & Smith Adult Dry Lite<br>
Dog and Adult Dry Lite Cat Food<br>
Rice protein concentrate has been indicated as a possible source of<br>
melamine recently found in pet food products. As a precautionary measure<br>
Wilbur-Ellis company, the<br>
supplier of rice protein concentrate, is voluntarily recalling all lots<br>
of rice protein concentrate. We received notification from the<br>
manufacturer today, April 25, 2007,<br>
suggesting we issue a precautionary recall.<br><br>
Two of our products: Adult Lite Dry Dog (Item #'s 14178, 14179, 14180,<br>
14262, 14263) and Adult Lite Dry Cat foods (Item #'s 12855, 12856,<br>
13864, 13865) contain rice protein<br>
concentrate. Only the Adult Lite Dry Dog and Adult Lite Dry Cat foods<br>
contain rice protein concentrate.<br><br>
Preliminary test results for melamine contamination have been negative.<br>
Final test results from the FDA are expected within two weeks. Please<br>
check the Adult Lite Dry Dog<br>
food or the Adult Lite Dry Cat food product pages on the<br> website for any updates.<br><br>
If your pet has consumed either the Adult Lite Dry Dog food or the<br>
Adult Lite Dry Cat food and shows signs of illness (such as loss of<br>
appetite, lethargy and vomiting), you<br>
should consult with your veterinarian immediately.<br><br>
As part of this precautionary recall Drs. Foster & Smith requests that<br>
customers discontinue feeding the following products purchased during<br>
the periods listed, until all FDA<br>
testing is complete:<br><br>
a.. Adult Lite Dry Dog food item numbers 14180, 14262, 14263, or Adult<br>
