This came across on the Coursing Groups and I wanted to spread the word.

At the end of December, a local kennel donated 12 cases of Kirkland canned

Lamb and Rice dog food. They said it was too rich for their dog because they

all got sick. Did not think any problem with the food. I fed to my dogs, and

to visiting dogs. Diarrhea for all dogs, puppy threw up 15 times. She

survived...Tesla and Dino did not. I contacted the company on Jan.3 to say

all dogs got sick. They said they did not produce that food. Four weeks

later, one dead dog, next week, another dead dog. Finally got a response

with...tell Costco. I contacted Costco, and then they contacted the

manufacturer. Who wants a sample of the food. Mind you...this similar food

was recalled in 2007-2009 for melamine contamination. Over 400 dogs died. I

filed a report and waiting for request for the sample of food.


I need to put out a warning of possible food contamination. ...is not

verified yet...but the vet and I feel it will be. The*Kirkland Canned Lamb

and Rice with expiration 2013. The cans I have say June 23, 2013*. Please

let your friends know. It would have been purchased in Nov.-Dec. 2012.

Please anyone that has a can to contact me directly. Do not return to

Costco. We need to let everyone know so more dogs don't die.

Everytime I read something like this, It puts me one step closer to preparing all the dog's food at home.


All you need is a little wackiness and a couple huge freezers ... :blush


Yep....Jessica's got it down pat! :)

:lol Once it becomes normal your fine. 5 years ago I would NEVER touch raw meat. Dead things creep me out... I would buy ground beef in the family packs and use giant wooden spoons to separate and repackage it. :blush It'a amazing what you will do you your dogs. I'll even touch turkey necks now. Won't do chicken feet though. I use gloves for those! :lol
