Nature's Variety Issues Nationwide Recall

Nature's Variety recall

Nature’s Variety is recalling 4 lots of dog food for an unusual odor.

According to the company, the food has not been contaminated in any way – it simply isn’t staying fresh the way it’s supposed to. This means that though the best-by date says the food is still fresh and safe for your dog to eat, it may not be. An odor has been reported to come from the foods that are going bad too quickly.

The 4 lots affected by this recall are all from the Nature’s Variety Prairie Beef Meal & Barley Medley dry kibble formulas. The specific lots affected are:

Formula Size UPC
Prairie Beef Meal & Barley Medley Kibble For Dogs 5 lb. 7 69949 60420 4
Prairie Beef Meal & Barley Medley Kibble For Dogs 15 lb. 7 69949 60425 9
Prairie Beef Meal & Barley Medley Kibble For Dogs 30 lb. 7 69949 60430 3
Prairie Beef Meal & Barley Medley Kibble For Dogs 3 oz. samples 7 69949 60432 7

If you have any of the affected bags, you have two options. You can either get a refund or an exchange for another formula by taking the affected bags or proof of purchase to the retailer where you purchased them. It is recommended that you do not continue feeding the affected food.

For further information, you can call Nature’s Variety directly at 888.519.7387.

Like the recent Pedigree recall where broken machinery parts caused a choking hazard, this recall is a good reminder to pay close attention to your dog’s food.
