Answers Pet Food

 No recalls.

Answers Pet Food is a raw diet for dogs and cats. The company hopes to position itself as more than just a pet food company, and instead part of an “ethical, social and environmentally conscience and best practices based movement.”


Green America’s Green Business Network has certified the company as an “environmentally and socially responsible business.” All Answers Pet Food packaging is from 100% recycled material. In a 2011 interview, Etty Gorman, a vice president at the company, said, “Other raw diets use plastic bags and plastic containers that are not recyclable and leach toxins and heavy metals into the product.”

According to the company website, “Answers Pet Food does not over-process the meat. Therefore, our nibbles and patties tend to be softer and moister than other, over-processed raw diets.” The food is also GMO-free. In November 2015, fermented raw cow’s milk kefir was added to the product lineup.

Has Answers Pet Food Ever Been Recalled?

No. The company maintains that no recall has been issued. But in January 2019, the FDA issued a warning letter stating that a single lot of A+ Answers Straight Beef Formula dog food had tested positive for salmonella. Because of the FDA’s “zero tolerance” policy toward salmonella, the agency wants that lot of food recalled. But the maker of Answers Pet Food has been fighting back — in a big way.
