How safe is your pet food?

Blue Buffalo, a company based out of Wilton, Connecticut that specializes in healthy and holistic dog food has issued a voluntary recall of a batch of their Life Protection Formula Dog Food.

But it's not for E. Coli, Salmonella or any of the other usual foodborne illness culprits. This recall is for a rather odd reason—moisture and mold.

Well, "excessive" moisture and mold.

The company is marking the following product as potentially contaminated with said moisture and mold:

  • 30 pound bag Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula Fish and Sweet Potato Recipe
  • Best by date: April 11, 2017
  • Batch data: AH 2A 12:08-14:00

The good news is that the batch of food that's affected is rather small and specific.

In fact, the product that's being recalled is limited to a single manufactured batch that was made within a 2-hour window.

Always better safe than sorry, especially when it comes to your pooch!

If you purchased any of the affected food, you can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund, according to the Wilton Bulletin.
