VIN’s Drug and Food Recall Center
Facebook is a wonderful tool to get word out fast about news items like the recent food recall issued from Blue Buffalo. But some of the links to items on Facebook are from questionable resources. The VIN News Service offers a Drug and Food Recall Center which is a trusted resource for all news about pet food recalls. You can subscribe to their newsfeed and be notified when there is a new recall.
