Cargill Arrow Brand Dog Food Recalled for Aflatoxin Contamination

Arrow Brand Dog Food, sold in Louisiana and Texas, is being recalled due to aflatoxin. O’Neal’s Feeders Supply Inc., distributors of Arrow Brand is a private label food manufactured by Cargill, at the same plant that manufactured the Cargill foods that were recalled last week.

The affected products are:

ARROW BRAND 21% Dog Chunks   SKU #807  40 lb. bag
ARROW BRAND Super Proeaux Dog Food  SKU #812 40 lb. bag
ARROW BRAND Professional Formula Dog Food  SKU #814 50 lb. bag

The recall only applies to the above products with the following Packaging Date Codes 4K0335 to 4K1335.

The affected dry dog food products were distributed in the state of Louisiana and Texas.  Retailers have already been instructed to remove the affected brands and products from store shelves. For more information, contact 800-256-2769 between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday through Friday.

If dogs that ate the recalled dry food show symptoms of sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish eyes or gums, or diarrhea, they should be taken to a veterinarian immediately, the recall notice advised.

Advanced Animal Nutrition’s dog food, and Arrow brand dog food at issue are elevated levels of aflatoxin, a toxic mold, that at high levels can cause liver damage and death. Chronic low levels of aflatoxin contaminated food ingestion may also cause serious health complications.

It is interesting to note that Cargill manufacturers several other brands including (but not limited to):

  • Purina pet food and animal feeds (available outside the US only)
  • Nutrena pet food, animal feeds and supplements (global distribution)
  • LNB pre-mixes, feed inputs and formulations (availability: Europe, The Philippines, Russia, Republic of China)
  • Provimi pre-mixes and specialties (global distribution)
  • Cargill pet food, animal feed (global distribution)
  • Cargill regional brands (Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, North America)
  • Cargill feed ingredients (global distribution)

If your animal is experiencing any adverse health consequences related to the feeding of the recalled feed notify the FDA immediately of the problem.

  7. Well the snowball of contaminated pet food is getting bigger and going faster. Who will be next. I would hope some of the soon to be exposed would come forth on their own. Do they really care? I know some who don’t and only care about the gold in their pockets. So how many of the exec’s who have “bad” food will be getting bonuses this year?

    • If I was the president of Cargill , oh no that’s too icky, if I was the president of the USA (that’s better) I’d say the FDA, the USDA and the CVM have about a snowball’s chance in Hell of getting a Xmas bonus. In fact, I’d make sure the only thing they got would be a dirty ol’ lump of coal in their Christmas stockings. The stinkers. Signed, Santapaws
