I just saw this. Apparently they sent the info out to their email subscribers, but hadn't posted any info on their website yet when itchmo reported. Nice.
"The affected formulas include 15oz cans of: Irish Stew, Hobo Chili, Chinese Take-Out and Southern Style Dumplinís with Gravy. The supplier, Castleberry Foods, found one instance of botulism in improperly sealed cans of human food."

According to the news report I just read, there were at least 2 cases of botulism infection (from products intended for people.)

Loopoo, could you get one of the mods to change the title of your post to "Natural Balance Recall"? :)

Wow, thanks Growler, I never knew that. I wanted to change a title a while ago and was told that only a mod could do it. :o

not sure if it can be done awhile after original post, I started a new thread last night posted it then realized I made a spelling error :o but that was only like 2 minutes later, so not sure if it would work now:)

Are you talking about changing a spelling error in your post or the actual title of your post? :confused:

It changed the title in my post but not the title on the forum page. I don't want to hijack this thread anymore so I'll show you in the TJT. :D
