This one is different, because I would not have known about it if a Petful subscriber hadn’t alerted me to it. (Thank you, T.!) She had received an email from the company because she was a customer.

The company has apparently not alerted anyone else other than “affected customers” — but doesn’t the general public have a right to know too? I think so. That’s why I HATE “silent recalls” like this. Well, this one is silent no more.

TruPet LLC is “withdrawing” a single lot of its TruDog Boost Me Mighty Beef raw freeze-dried dog food toppers. This is the 2nd recall of 2018 for the company. Here are the full recall details:
