Our mission here at Pure Pet is to provide a place for happy, healthy dogs. A place where our customers can come in knowing they are getting the best for their pets. Products that we would have absolutely zero problems giving to our own pets. We are constantly researching products and brands we bring in, to only offer our customers the very best.
Last month we learned of the serious incident with Evanger’s Hunk of Beef canned dog food which contained the euthanasia drug, pentobarbital. Without any hesitation we pulled all Evanger's brand products from our shelves last month. On February 19th Evanger's issues its first voluntary recall of 60,000 cans of their Hunk of Beef with certain lot numbers (1816E03HB, 1816E04HB, 1816E06HB, 1816E07HB and 1816E13HB and have an expiration date of June 2020) these cans were sold in stores and online in Washington, California, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.
Our whole team was, and still is, extremely disappointed, shocked, and upset over this, as we fed this to our own pets. We agree with Evanger's website that “Even One Recall in 82 Years is One Too Many!”. We will no longer be selling their products and as a precaution if you have ANY Evanger's cans (regardless of flavor) that you have purchased from us, please bring them back for a full refund, as your pet’s health is our top priority. We do not feel comfortable selling products we don’t trust.
If you have recently shopped with us you may have noticed we are updating our system and asking for your phone number and email. One problem we have noticed through this whole situation is that there is no tracking of the cans once they leave the cannery. We are creating an in-house system to track our can lot numbers as cases come in and hit our shelves, to create a faster way to contact customers that purchase certain items.
We want to thank you for being loyal customers and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to call us!
