There are a lot of scares in the world today. A lot of them happen outside the home and seem less concerning than the ones that involve you personally. But when the scare enters your home it becomes personal and much more frightening. Take a pet food recall, for instance; you’ve been feeding your pet a particular brand of food that seems to satisfy their finicky tastes. Suddenly, the news comes to your attention that that brand has issued a recall for some reason.
First, remain calm. If your pet hasn’t been vomiting or showing other indications of an upset stomach, you’re probably in a safe beginning zone. Second, get out to the store immediately and purchase another brand of food. As much as people love their pets, it’s an all too common issue to forget to make necessary changes where animals are concerned. By buying another brand right away, you’ll nip the problem in the bud. Don’t be surprised if class action attorneys in Los Angeles get on the case.
Third, remove the recalled food from the house immediately. It’s best to remove it on the way to the store to buy another brand, so you handle the switch completely. By taking the offending brand out of your home, you’ll avoid the possibility of forgetting that there was a recall. And while you might not forget, remember that others could feed your pet. Sometimes guests will find pet food and feed your apparently hungry pet without your knowledge – and they won’t be aware of the recall!
