    My parents feed sensible choice so right when I read this I called my mom and told her about the recall...Turns out they were on their way out the door to go pick up more because they just ran out!

    Its scary how many foods have been recalled, I'm dreading that they're going to recall bil-jac (what mine are getting now).

    Dear Royal Canin USA Customer,

    It is with sincere regret that I inform you of a new and unfortunate development with some of our pet food products.

    Although we have no confirmed cases of illness in pets, we have decided to voluntarily remove the following dry pet food products that contain rice protein concentrate due to the presence of a melamine derivative.

    ROYAL CANIN SENSIBLE CHOICE® (available in pet specialty stores nationwide)

    Dry Dog Food
    - Chicken Meal & Rice Formula Senior
    - Lamb Meal & Rice Formula Puppy
    - Lamb Meal & Rice Formula Adult
    - Lamb Meal & Rice Formula Senior
    - Rice & Catfish Meal Formula Adult

    ROYAL CANIN VETERINARY DIET™ (available only in veterinary clinics)

    Dry Dog Food
    - Canine Early Cardiac EC 22™
    - Canine Skin Support SS21™

    Dry Cat Food
    - Feline Hypoallergenic HP23™

    We are taking this proactive stance to voluntarily recall these products to avoid any confusion for our customers about which Royal Canin USA products are safe and which products may be affected.

    Pet owners should immediately stop feeding their pets the Royal Canin USA dry pet food products listed above. Pet owners should consult with a veterinarian if they are concerned about the health of their pet. No other Royal Canin diets are affected by this recall and CONTINUE TO BE safe for pets to eat.

    In addition, Royal Canin USA will no longer use any Chinese suppliers for any of our vegetable proteins.

    This decision to recall some of our dry pet food products is driven by our philosophy that the “Pet Comes First”. The safety and nutritional quality of our pet food is Royal Canin USA’s top priority. Pet owners who have questions about this recall and other Royal Canin USA products should call 1-800-592-6687.

    On behalf of the entire Royal Canin family, our hearts go out to the pet owners and everyone in the pet community who have been affected by all of the recent recalls. We are as passionate about the health and happiness of our customers’ pets as we are of our own, so we are committed to taking the steps necessary to ensure this never happens again.

    Sincerely,

    Olivier Amice
    President and CEO
    Royal Canin USA
