    With the massive pet food recall that is going on, I have had people asking me what pet food is safe. At this point, feeding our pets any commercially prepared food can feel quite risky. The following companies have made statements that their food is not affected by the Menu Foods recall. Keep in mind that we are not “recommending” any of these foods. Rather, we’re compiling a list of foods that are reported safe by the manufacturers.

    I know they are not affiliated with Menu Foods...they just arent on that list ?? probably cause they are not as well known and not available in a lot of the US yet ??

    I agree. Finding out that some of the brands that I comsidered to be "very good" even if they are not made there, but go through Menu foods, that is enough to turn me off.
