Quality and Safety in Pet Food
TLC Pet Food outlines our commitment to the safety and quality of our products amid news of recent salmonella outbreaks in the U.S. and Canada.
Quality and safety in pet food have been front and center with the news of recent drug-resistant salmonella outbreaks happening in both the U.S. and Canada.
As pet owners ourselves, we understand how frightening and concerning news of these events can be and wanted to take a moment to review TLC’s commitment to quality and food safety.
TLC Pet Food is not affected by the outbreak or product recalls.
