    NEW CANIN RECALL AND A NEW CONTAMINANT

    April 21st, 2007. Less than 24 hours after announcing a recall of Royal Canin Sensible Choice dry food (5 varieties) and three varieties of Royal Canin Veterinary Diet (2 canine; 1 feline) [see Coton e-ZINE article "[ALERT] Another Critical Recall" 4/20/07], the company has expanded its recall of Veterinary Diet foods and found yet a new contaminant in the foods made with Chinese rice gluten:

    "April 20, 2007 - Medi-Cal/Royal Canin Canada Voluntary Product Recall, http://www.medi- cal.ca/, (all date codes of):

    ROYAL CANIN VETERINARY DIET CANINE EARLY CARDIAC EC

    ROYAL CANIN VETERINARY DIET CANINE SENSITIVITY RC (Rice and Catfish)

    ROYAL CANIN VETERINARY DIET CANINE SKIN SUPPORT SS

    ROYAL CANIN VETERINARY DIET FELINE HYPOALLERGENIC HP

    ROYAL CANIN VETERINARY DIET FELINE SENSITIVITY RD (Rice and Duck)

    Royal Canin has discovered a new contaminant in rice gluten. This contaminant is cyanuric acid, which is chemically related to, but distinct from, melamine.

    Consequently, we are recalling all date codes of these dry products.

    We recommend you stop feeding these specific diets and return them to your veterinary clinic for a substitute diet or refund. If you have any concerns over the health and well-being of your pet, please contact your veterinary clinic. You can also contact Medi-Cal/Royal Canin Veterinary Diet at 1-866-494-6844. Please leave a voice message with your name, number, and a brief description of your concern. This will help us determine the appropriate routing of your questions. All calls will be returned by a Medi-Cal/Royal Canin Veterinary Diet team member within 24 hours.

    We cannot express how devastated we are to notify you of this new finding, and we offer you our sincere regrets and apologies. The steps we are taking are driven by our philosophy of putting pets first."
