Please take note of this part, members. While this is a serious issue, this is not a new recall, but rather has been in effect since October 2008, which I believe has been posted previously. Please keep in mind that while many people may be aware of this fact, this is the internet. With a potential audience of thousands (or even millions), there is the potential for undue stress caused by rumours of "yet another recall".

Thanks Ford, cause I was getting very worried. I do feed special kitty to my cats, but mine is in cans. So I can start breathing again.

Ford, thanks so much for pointing that out ....I obviously read it too fast and only noticed the "best by dates" posted in bold letters.

That is a VERY important point Ford!

Everything STAYS on the Internet these days, and anything can be NEW to someone even though it's old news. I'd encourage people to check multiple sources to ensure current news is indeed current.

Thx
Marko
