Has There Ever Been an Evolve Recall?

There have been several Evolve recalls, according to our research.

In July 2021, Sunshine Mills issued a recall for Evolve due to elevated aflatoxin levels, affecting two lot codes of a specific chicken and rice dog food recipe. Another recall in 2018 involved an Evolve puppy formula with high Vitamin D levels.

Additionally, back in 2007, an Evolve recall was initiated due to potential melamine contamination.
