Apparently, the moderator chose not to post, or removed, the post I submitted yesterday. I guess you can dish it out but not take it.
Note that NV's expanded recall notice referenced positive salmonella tests on two date codes that were not included in the initial recall.
I guess it may be that you able to post false information elsewhere is why you are so upset. Here we pride ourselves on facts. Yes we have opinion and we clearly state when something is our opinion. You on the other hand chose to come here and try to spread false allegations against a company with no proof at all. No attacked you. You did the attacking. We simply asked you to prove your allegations. You could not. It is as simple as that. On other less tasteful sites that may be allowed but it isn't here. I support the moderator in not allowing you to make false allegations and not allowing you to call out other members. That simply is not acceptable here. It may acceptable on other sites but not here. We are a group of people that try to provide good information and help to others. There are no cliques and no one trying to one up anyone else. We come here for opinions and facts. That is what we want and that is what we get.
Again there is no press release or any information that supports what you say.
The "expanded" withdraw was a precautionary measure. Overly cautious if you ask me. But that is why they are a great company. They decide to remove "all" chicken regardless of dates or codes. Here is their release. No where does state 2 new batches.
Nature’s Variety has received new test results from an outside facility that indicate that Chicken Formula Raw Frozen Diet with the "Best If Used By" date of 10/29/10 and Chicken Formula Raw Frozen Diet with the "Best If Used By" date of 11/9/10 may be contaminated with Salmonella. Therefore, we are voluntarily recalling these date codes of product from the marketplace. Also, out of an abundance of caution, we are expanding our voluntary recall to include all Chicken Formula and Organic Chicken Formula Raw Frozen Diets for dogs and cats with any "Best If Used By" date on or before 2/5/11. We believe taking this action is an important and responsible step in order to reinforce your confidence and trust.
I hope that clears things up for you.
