Yikes! Evangers

My favorite canned food (for the dogs as a high value treat) - Evanger's.

FDA Suspends Temporary Emergency Permit of Pet Food Maker

Evanger's, operating in Wheeling, Illinois, deviated from the prescribed process, equipment, product shipment, and recordkeeping requirements in the production of the company's thermally processed low acid canned food (LACF) products. The deviations in their processes and documentation 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.
