The FDA news release is highly inaccurate and misleading. Evanger's Dog and Cat Food Company is not under emergency permit and is currently manufacturing and distributing its products worldwide with FDA approval. There have been no allegations for unsafe product or recalls. Please go to evangersdogfood.com for company statement.

I work with Evanger's Dog & Cat Food Company. Evanger's President and Co-Owner (with her husband) Holly Sher issued the following statement Friday afternoon, shortly after the FDA's news release was posted to the agency's Web site. If anyone reading this has questions or comments, please feel free to e-mail them to me and I will make sure that Joel and Holly personally receive them:

FYI, ALL ingredients in Evanger’s products are sourced in the United States and manufacturing is done in its suburban Chicago facility.

Wheeling, Ill., Friday, April 25, 2008 – As a result of a routine inspection of the Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food Company manufacturing facilities by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the FDA recently raised questions regarding recordkeeping and other issues at the pet food producer’s facilities.

Contrary to a news release issued by the FDA Thursday, April 24, 2008, Evanger’s continues to make and distribute its products with FDA approval. Evanger’s is working closely with the FDA and already has addressed many of the FDA’s questions. Evanger’s expects to have the few remaining FDA queries fully satisfied shortly.

No Evanger’s product has been recalled, nor is there any indication that any Evanger’s product is under-processed, unsafe, or contaminated in any way.

“As our customers, retailers and distributors know, Evanger’s takes the quality and safety of its pet foods very seriously,” said Holly Sher, president of Evanger’s. “Evanger’s has a long history of using only human-grade ingredients in our products. The FDA has not called into question the wholesomeness of any ingredient we use. We are confident Evanger’s products continue to be safe, wholesome and natural, so confident that we continue to feed them daily to our own pets.”

All ingredients in Evanger’s products are sourced in the United States and all manufacturing is done in its suburban Chicago facility. The routine FDA inspection was related only to Evanger’s canned foods and did not cover production of its dry pet food products.

As the United States’ oldest natural pet food company, Evanger’s products are known for their human-grade ingredients, including hand-packed meats, fish and poultry, and 100% meat and organic meals.
Consumers and distributors may contact Evanger’s customer service department at (800) 288-6796 for further information. In addition, all new or updated information will be immediately posted to the company’s Website, www.evangersdogfood.com.

Not surprising that the defense comments come right from the firm. Wed of this week, I split a can of beef chunks between my two 10-lb Pomeranians and half an hour later, rushed them to the emergency animal hospital. My animals went through hell; my little guy just got out yesterday afternoon and he still has seizures and can barely walk. Lets connect the dots here; they ate evangers food, and half an hour later, were unable to stand, or even hold up their heads. An hour later, they were both blind and fighting for their lives. 4 calls to Evangers have been unreturned, as well as 2 emails. My roommate called, and was hung up on, yet Joel Sher posted on another site that this didnt happen. Yes, it did happen. No amount of 'blowing this off' by Evangers will negate what happened. The food is on its way to the Univ of Md toxicology lab for testing. Its the ONLY thing they ingested. Like I said earlier, you connect the dots!
