An amazing effort from Pet Food Express to keep pets safe and an inexcusable lack of effort from Blue Buffalo.
From the Pet Food Express website (bold font added):
“October 25, 2010 – Blue Buffalo Dog and Cat Foods Discontinued
Several Blue Buffalo dry dog food formulas were recalled in October for high Vitamin D levels. We know from long experience that “limited” recalls often expand to other products so it is our policy that when an item from a manufacturer is recalled, we pull all their products in the same category until they provide us satisfactory documentation of their safety. In our experience, every manufacturer that is concerned about food safety has shared test results and procedural details with us to this end. Blue Buffalo has declined to do so claiming that the information is proprietary and private. Furthermore, the company representative that we were dealing with told us that, “If the information I have already provided does not meet your requirements, I suggest you pull the products permanently from your stores.”
We are committed to safety for your pet. We are not comfortable that we can fulfill that commitment with Blue Buffalo. Therefore we are discontinuing the sale of their products. However, we will keep it available by special order for those who would still like it. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.
Mark and Michael”
