I saw this a few days ago on another dog site. Thank goodness I do hang out on dog boards - I NEVER watch TV or listen to radio anymore, much too busy. I had a can of the Bunker Hill hot dog chili in my pantry. Botulism, yum. :rolleyes:

Info from the Natural Balance website, which does not display a copyright notice:


Natural Balance was informed on July 21st, 2007 at 2:45 PM Pacific time by our USDA manufacturer, Castleberry Foods, in Augusta, GA, that they are doing a voluntary recall on all 15 oz. edible foods for humans as well as our Natural Balance Eatables for Dogs (Irish Stew, Hobo Chili, Chinese Take-Out and Southern Style Dumplin's with Gravy).


This voluntary recall is from one reported case of botulism in Castleberry's human edible Hot Dog Chili Sauce. Botulism is generally due to an improperly sealed can or a can that has become damaged, thus letting air inside. Natural Balance checks all of its cans for any kind of leakage, puffiness or damage before they are shipped, and we have found none.


However, to comply with our manufacturer, we are asking that you discontinue use and return Eatables for Dogs to your store for a full refund. We will give you more information as we get it.
