More than 130 dog deaths may be linked to Midwestern Pet Foods

Over 130 dog deaths, 220 illnesses may be linked to Midwestern Pet Foods, FDA warns

The Food and Drug Administration sent a warning letter to a pet food manufacturer Tuesday, saying the brand’s foods are thought to be linked to more than 130 pet deaths and 220 pet illnesses.

“Inspections of Midwestern Pet Foods, Inc.’s manufacturing plants revealed evidence of violations, which were shared across multiple plants and were associated with the illness or death of hundreds of pets who had eaten the company’s dry dog food,” Steven M. Solomon, director of the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine, said in a statement.

Evansville, Indiana-based Midwestern launched voluntary recalls in January and March due to issues with mold and salmonella.

The letter, sent Tuesday, gives Midwestern 15 working days to write back with word of steps it took to fix the violations found during the inspections.
