Blue Buffalo Recall 2017 (#2)

For the second time in a month, Blue Buffalo ‘Premium’ Dog Food has recalled another line of their food. We’ve talked about the challenges of large pet food manufacturers and the many recalls they frequently experience, though we’re constantly disappointed to see this fact proven, especially at the expense of pet owners who have bought what they believe to be a ‘premium’ product’.

As more and more recalls occur, we can only hope that dog owners begin to think more about how their dog food is manufactured and prepared, before making a purchase or serving their dog something. Unfortunately, the word ‘premium’ is not regulated, and shouldn’t be an indicator of quality of dog food (you can hear expert Dr. Justin Shmalberg speak about this issue).

Learn more about how your dog food is made. How far removed are you from the product you put in your dog’s food bowl? At NomNomNow, we do not outsource any aspect of our dog food production. We don’t trust anyone to prioritize your dog’s health as highly as we do, and we’re not about to leave any part of the preparation to someone else. Whichever dog food you feed, you should demand the same level of care.

You’re the spokesperson for your dog, and the only one able to make the right choices for them. We say, do enough research to choose wisely, and you can rest assured that you won’t be the one driving back to the pet store (or worse…) after yet another recall.
