|The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an order requiring that |
Evanger's Dog & Cat Food Co., Inc., in Wheeling, Ill., obtain an
emergency permit from the FDA before its canned pet food products enter
A recent inspection revealed significant deviations from prescribed
documentation of processes, equipment, and recordkeeping in the
production of the company's thermally processed low acid canned food
(LACF) products. These problems could result in under-processed pet
foods, which can allow the survival and growth of Clostridium botulinum
(C. botulinum), a bacterium that causes botulism in some animals as
well as in humans.
