Has 4health Ever Been Recalled?

Yes. In 2013 Diamond, the manufacturer of 4health, recalled several varieties of cat food including 4health because of potentially too low levels of thiamine, an essential vitamin (B1) for cats. In 2012, Diamond also recalled all brands of 4health pet food manufactured in its Gaston, South Carolina, facility because of potential salmonella contamination.

    Hi- I have been feeding my 3 dogs the 4-Health Senior Chicken & Rice canned dog food for years. But the last 21 cans I bought had black specks of something in it. I never saw this before. I did see the rice ,but not these blacks specks some of which are 1/4 inch round. If anyone else has noticed this please let me know. I hate feeding this to my dogs if there is something there that should not be. Thank you

      Hi Linda- if you’re concerned, I would stop feeding the food immediately. Black specks could be SO many things, from harmless bits of food to dirt or even mold. Contact the company to tell them what you’ve found, and try to have the packaging with you so you can give them lot numbers and other information.

    This new bag of puppy 4health is much much darker in color from the previous bags. My American Bulldog at 9 months old is hesitant to eat it and when she does her poop is soft and obviously darker rather than the healthy tan and solid poop she’s had in the past.
    Why is it darker?

      Hey Christopher! I can’t say for sure, but reasons might include the company changing their recipe, the date on the bag (i.e. if it’s an older bag) or if it’s just not a good mix. I’d give the company a call and ask them what would make their food look like that.
