***** IMPORTANT *****

PRODUCT QUALITY NOTICE FROM ROYAL CANIN USA

Dear Breeder:

As a fellow pet lover and very important part of the pet welfare community, Royal Canin USA wants to inform you personally that we recently announced a recall of eight Royal Canin USA dry pet food products that contain rice protein concentrate (rice gluten) from China tainted with a melamine derivative.

We assure you it is our primary focus to provide healthy diet options for your breed, and we are taking all of the necessary steps to resolve this issue. That is why as a precaution, Royal Canin USA is voluntarily recalling the following eight dry pet food products.

These are the only Royal Canin USA pet food products that are part of our recall. All of our other products are safe for dogs and cats to eat.

Royal Canin USA Recalled Products Summary

Available only in US veterinarian clinics:
- ROYAL CANIN Veterinary Diet Canine EARLY CARDIAC EC22 dry

We genuinely regret this unfortunate incident as we place the highest priority on the health of pets. On behalf of the entire Royal Canin family, our hearts go out to you, pet owners and everyone in the pet community who has been affected by all of the recent pet food recalls.

Sincerely
