NATURE’S LOGIC
Nature's Logic Rep stated that most of their foods are made at Crosswind in Kansas.
Canned: Would not definitely state whether or not made at Menu Foods
May not be adequate for routine feeding. Please read their FAQ page carefully (see below)

http://www.natureslogic.com/
http://www.natureslogic.com/faq/#faq7

QUOTE

Why do Nature's Logic™ diets use the AAFCO statement, “intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only” and not an adequacy statement?

By doing this, there are a couple nutrients that come in a fraction lower than the AAFCO Nutrient Profile for Dogs and Cats. All 42 nutrients are present in all Nature’s Logic products; some 2 times, 3 times, 4 times, and as high as 46 times the required minimum amount of these nutrients are in our finished products from the whole food ingredients. But because Nature’s Logic has a fraction less of a couple nutrients than the AAFCO Nutrient Profile, the intermittent statement had to be used until the Nature’s Logic Diets were substantiated by an AAFCO Feeding Trial. This feeding trial for canines was successfully completed in August of 2006, and as we deplete our current packaging, new packaging is being printed with the following statement: : “Animal feeding tests using AAFCO procedures substantiate that Nature’s Logic provides complete and balanced nutrition for All Life Stages”. (See news article about Feeding Trial).

Also for clarification for those that are bargaining on the recall being limited to only the two specified plants of Menu Foods, since the company states there is no problem at the other two.

This is from their own website

Distribution Channels


Customers’ orders are assigned for shipping purposes to one of Menu’s four plant locations. Certain products are shipped between plants in order to more efficiently manage shipments to large customers by combining products produced in different plants into a single customer shipment. Menu believes that it is the only private-label wet pet food manufacturer with four manufacturing facilities in North America, and can thus allocate an order between any of its plants based on capability, product cost, material availability, freight cost and available production capacity. Since the major retailers in the United States are increasingly multi-regional or national in scope, Menu’s ability to serve them from four locations provides it with service and freight cost advantages compared to other single or two plant private-label competitors. Menu believes that the flexibility and depth of its infrastructure is such that it is the only private-label wet pet food manufacturer in North America that is providing national retailers with cross-continental service and complete product lines in all significant packaging configurations.

Kioana, I found this on their site: "Dog lovers,

We would like you to know that PEDIGREE® Food For Dogs is not a part of the recent nationwide pet food recall initiated by Menu Foods and other companies. The safety of products not involved in the recall was validated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on March 23, 2007. According to the FDA, pet owners should feel confident feeding unrecalled products to their pets. All of our PEDIGREE® products remain a safe, nutritious and delicious way to feed your best friends.

As dog lovers ourselves, the safety and nutritional quality of our food is our top priority, and you should continue to feel confident feeding our food to your dog.

For details on the recall, contact Menu Foods at 1-866-895-2708, 1-866-463-6738 or visit the company's web site at: www.menufoods.com/recall."
