    FDA Warning Letter to Evanger's Pet Food Company


    Evangers Pet Food has received a warning letter from the FDA citing violations of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. FDA testing found a lamb dog food did not contain lamb and a grain free duck pet food did not contain duck.

    The FDA Warning Letter to Evangers...

    May 5, 2011
    Warning Letter
    CHI-12-10

    Ms. Holly N. Sher, President
    Mr. Joel A. Sher, Vice President
    Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food Company, Inc.
    221 Wheeling Road
    Wheeling, Illinois 60090

    Dear Mr. and Ms. Sher:

    From December 2, 2010 through February 10, 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conducted an inspection of your low-acid canned food manufacturing facility located at 221 Wheeling Road, Wheeling, Illinois. In addition, on August 19, 2010, FDA received samples of (b)(4) Lamb and Rice Dog Food from the distributor, (b)(4). This letter notifies you of the violations of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) that we found during our inspection and from the samples we received from the distributor. You can find the FD&C Act and its associated regulations on the Internet through links on FDA’s web page at www.fda.gov1.

    We found that you offered for sale (b)(4) Lamb and Rice Dog Food which was adulterated. Under Section 402(b)(2) of the FD&C Act, 21 U.S.C. § 342(b)(2), a food is deemed to be adulterated if any substance has been substituted wholly or in part therefore. Our analytical sample results of this product revealed that a substance (lamb) was not detected in the product and another ingredient (bovine material) detected in the product was substituted therefore. Furthermore, this product was misbranded. Under Section 403(b) of the FD&C Act, 21 U.S.C. § 343(b), a food is deemed to be misbranded if it is offered for sale under the name of another food. This product was offered for sale under the name of “(b)(4) Lamb and Rice Dog Food.” However, the analytical sample results did not detect the presence of lamb, but detected the presence of bovine material.

    On December 14, 2010, FDA collected samples of your Evanger’s Grain-free Duck Pet Food during the inspection of your facility. We found that the Evanger’s Grain-free Duck Pet Food product was adulterated. Under Section 402(b)(1) of the FD&C Act, 21 U.S.C. § 342(b)(1), a food is deemed to be adulterated if any valuable constituent has been in whole or in part omitted or abstracted therefrom. Our investigation revealed that a valuable constituent (duck) was not detected in the product and had been omitted or abstracted therefrom. Furthermore, this product was misbranded. Under Section 403(a)(1) of the FD&C Act, 21 U.S.C. § 343(a)(1), a food is deemed to be misbranded if its labeling is false or misleading in any particular. The labeling indicates that Evanger’s Grain-free Duck Pet Food contains duck, but the analytical sample results did not detect the presence of duck in the product.

    In addition, your firm was not able to provide processing and production records upon written demand, as required by 21 C.F.R. 108.35(h), for products manufactured in 2009.

    Never heard of Evangers .... but will certainly avoid using it if for some reason I need to change from Fromm. How can you have a duck food that doesn't contain duck ...... and a lamb based food that doesn't contain lamb!!

    There is quite an impressive list in the of dog food recalls since 2007. I don't want to even think what they put in their products and how do they justify it to themselves, despicable people. And the advertising is all about how they want what is best for your pet, yeah, right.

    Scary that these recalls are so frequent.... It just inspires me to make the leap to home cooking 100% of the time....who needs sleep?
