Bil-Jac Dog Food

Important recall information appears below.

After brothers Bill and Jack Kelly served in World War II, they wanted to formulate a quality dog food. In 1947, the brothers founded Bil-Jac and began selling frozen dog food that could be thawed and fed when desired. After the 1970s, the company introduced a dry dog food line.


The company spends very little on advertising and focuses instead of word-of-mouth recommendations.
