Ol’ Roy Dog Food

Important recall information appears below.

Ol’ Roy is a brand of dog food owned and marketed by Walmart. Originally produced for Walmart by Doane Pet Foods, in 2007 Doane was sold to the Mars Group, which provides the manufacturing of Ol’ Roy for Walmart today.

Because the Ol’ Roy label is produced solely for Walmart, that is the only place you can find this brand.

Has Ol’ Roy Ever Been Recalled?

Yes. In September 2008, Ol’ Roy Complete Nutrition dog food was recalled because of potential salmonella contamination. A year earlier, beginning in March 2007, Ol’ Roy was one of the many pet foods recalled in the Menu Foods melamine recall. Also in 2007, unrelated to the melamine recall, one lot of 55 lb. bags of Ol’ Roy Complete Nutrition was recalled for possible salmonella contamination.
