Has Acana Ever Been Recalled?
No. This brand has not been recalled, according to our research.
However, in late June 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) identified Acana as one of 16 pet food brands that may be linked to heart disease in dogs and cats. None of the brands have been recalled as part of the agency’s ongoing investigation, though. Most, but not all, of the pet foods are “grain-free” and/or dry (kibble) dog food formulations.
The FDA says this is a “complex scientific issue that may involve multiple factors,” and that it cannot even be certain that diet is a cause of the heart problems.
For full details, see our article on the subject.
Also, in March 2018, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Champion Petfoods, accusing the company of “negligent, reckless” practices, false advertising, and “failing to disclose the presence of heavy metals and toxins” in its Orijen and Acana dog foods. In response, the company called the allegations “meritless and based on misinterpretation of the data.” More about the Orijen/Acana lawsuit here.
