Important January 11, 2021, UPDATE below.
The pet food recalls continue. FDA Alert: Certain Lots of Pet Food from Multiple Brands Recalled for Aflatoxin. From the FDA website: specific pet food products manufactured by Sunshine Mills under several brand names, may contain unsafe levels of aflatoxin. Aflatoxin is produced by the Aspergillus flavus mold, which can grow on corn and other grains. At high levels, aflatoxin can cause illness and death in pets. Symptoms may include sluggishness, loss of appetite, vomiting, jaundice (yellowish tint to the eyes or gums due to liver damage), and/or diarrhea. In severe cases, this toxicity can be fatal. In some cases, pets may suffer liver damage but not show any symptoms. Brands include, Family Pet Meaty Cuts®, Heartland Farms®, Champ®, Field Trial®, Good Dog, Hunter’s Special®, Old Glory®, Paws Happy Life®, Pet Expert, Principle, Retriever®, River Bend, Sportsman’s Pride®, Sprout®, Thrifty®, Top Runner® or Whiskers & Tails. For a complete list, with Lot Numbers, go to the FDA web page: Sunshine Mills, Inc. Expands Previously Announced Voluntary Recall of Certain Pet Food Products Due to Potentially Elevated Levels of Aflatoxin.
JANUARY 11, 2021 UPDATE: After more than 70 dogs have died and 80 have gotten sick after consuming Sportmix pet food, the FDA has expanded the pet food recall to all pet foods containing corn manufactured by Midwestern Pet Foods. This food has an expiration date on or before July 9, 2022. The updated list of recalled pet food products (as of January 11, 2021) includes lots of the following pet food products, if the date/lot code includes an expiration date on or before "07/09/22" and includes "05" in the date/lot code, which identifies products made in the Oklahoma plant:
Lot code information may be found on the back of bag and will appear in a three-line code, with the top line in format "EXP 03/03/22/05/L#/B###/HH:MM" For more updated details go to: FDA Alert
Want to avoid all these recalls? The best "wholistic" suggestion to prevent danger to your pet is -- STOP feeding dry kibble pet food. In our "wholistic" opinion, dry kibble pet food containing grains is the least nutritious form of food to feed a carnivore. It is nutritionally equivalent to feeding meat-flavored cookies to your child. Furthermore, a majority of all pet food recalls is with dry food. Canned food, freeze-dried food and raw food have a much lower percentage of recalls. For the latest recalls, go to:

What Other Benefits Does Your Product Offer? — Freedom From Illness
Many times a client has purchased one of our whole superfood products for themselves, their pet or other member of their family and received amazing benefits. We have literally helped people and pets with autoimmune conditions, nutritionally supported their body so they could reduce and even eliminate medication and even helped pets that were headed for euthanasia. That is because our whole superfood products contain over 5,000 individual nutrients that nourish and balance ALL the glands and organs of the WHOLE body. When ALL the glands and organs (especially the brain) are working efficiently and in synergy, there is no need for symptoms. After seeing such amazing benefits, first-time customers frequently ask the following questions:
The stock answer to all the above is, Yes. When a holistic product has abundant antioxidants, which are super nutrients for the brain, almost anything is possible. Dr. Michael Kiriac (world famous bio-algae concentrates researcher) says, "If one can influence the health of the brain, the rest is a no-brainer." This is what he calls "awakening the genius within." This is not taking Product/Drug A for arthritis, Product/Drug D for digestion or Product/Drug E for the eyes. Instead of supplementing the symptoms, we suggest taking whole food products containing these super antioxidants on a daily basis and not just when symptoms show up or blow up. When the pituitary (master gland), pineal and hypothalamus glands in the brain are properly nourished and balanced, they will scan and regulate all the secondary glands and organs back into balance. This is what we call healing from the top>down or inside>out. Unlike in Western medicine where the product (drug or isolated supplement) is doing the work, this is the body/brain doing the work. When supplied with over 5,000 individual nutrients and armed with fully functioning glands working synergistically in the brain, Freedom From Illness may now be achievable. Because BioPreparation for pets and BioSuperfood for people have the same exact ingredients and work in the same holistic way, all these amazing benefits are possible for both people and pets. To see what our other clients have experienced, go to our Testimonial page, and select any of the green buttons for health conditions in the left-hand menu bar. Here is one client example.
A client's 10-year old Labrador Retriever had a loss of appetite and lethargic behavior, so the vet ordered a senior blood panel. The subsequent diagnosis was an autoimmune condition known as IMHA (Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia). This condition is so devastating and unpredictable that 50% of dogs diagnosed with IMHA (or AIHA) die within the first two weeks of diagnosis. This Lab had a red blood cell count of 20% (normal is 35-55%). This same dog had recurring UTI's (urinary tract infections) and was being treated with antibiotics. The second round of antibiotics, Enrofloxacin, did not work after two months. It was unknown if the IMHA condition was primary or secondary to the UTI. In addition to steroids, this poor dog was also prescribed Mycophenolate Mofetil (immune suppressant), Clopidogrel (anti-clotting), Sucralfate (anti-ulcer) and Prilosec. Although the dog was still perky and eating/drinking a lot, her muscles showed breakdown, as she struggled to get up/down and getting in/out of their truck. Apparently, loss of leg strength and muscle loss is common on steroids. So, we suggested increasing the BioPreparation-F3+ from 3 capsules/day to an advanced amount of 4-6 capsules/day for more benefits. Here is the client's report two years later.
How did BioPreparation-F3+ "cure" (client's own words) this dog's IMHA autoimmune condition, diabetic disorder, frequent UTI and unexplained masses? It was NOT the product doing the work. BioPreparation-F3+ supplied the body with Vitamin A, B-complex, C, D, E and K, Omega 3, 6, 9, GLAs (Gamma-Linolenic Acids), ALAs (Alpha-Linolenic Acids), DGLA (Dihomogamma-Linolenic Acid), DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) and more fatty acids, abundant antioxidants, over 4,000 enzymes, 10 essential amino acids plus 10 non-essential ones, over 5,000 total nutrients, so the body could resume normal red blood cell production and immune function. Bio-algae concentrates do not treat symptoms but holistically balance the whole body, including ALL the glands and organs. When the endocrine and immune systems are holistically balanced, everything will work like it should. Bio-algae concentrates are such a revolutionary concept they are 100 years ahead of their time. Now that is true holistic wellness!
The above is one individual case history. Your and your pet's results will be different. Benefits depend on an individual's genetics, diet, lifestyle, past and current health condition, compliance with taking the product on a daily basis, etc.
Now we are not saying one can take our
holistic products, continue to smoke and expect the lung cancer to go
needs to also make the necessary holistic dietary and healthy lifestyle
changes, like our client did above. Freedom
From Illness requires educating ourselves in how Nature
intended our and our
pet's bodies to get nourished and
honoring all its requirements (clean water, fresh air, adequate rest and
exercise, etc.) and limitations (no excess processed foods, white flour
and sugar, alcohol,
GMO ingredients, chemical preservatives in food, petrochemicals
in personal care products, etc.). We feel it is better to be
holistically proactive now, rather than medically reactive and wait for
symptoms to show up or blow up. The choice is yours.
