We need to bring to your attention an important issue with you. In December, Schoenborn Family Farms was experiencing an exhaust leak from a water heater in their new facility. The problem was intermittent. It only occurred when both the water heater and the furnace were operating at the same time so it was a challenge to discover the source of the exhaust smell.  The problem began on or after December 5th and was repaired on January 17th. The farm staff worked full shifts in the facility while the occurrences took place. The staff reported no ill effects aside from experiencing the annoying odor. Everyone, however, was completely unaware that the My Pet Carnivore food that they were grinding and packaging had picked up some of that “exhaust-like” odor.

I don't have any of the listed lots in my freezer.  Yay!

I think all raw meat smells icky.  When I dish out food, I don't breathe through my nose... to keep from gagging.  I may have to change my routine. From what I read, the exhaust smell in the lots listed is pretty strong though.

All of the results are in from the two independent labs that were asked to test our products. These tests were conducted as part of a Product Alert that we communicated previously. We are pleased to share the test reports with you!

Lab Update: 3/26/18
   

   
Alliance Analytical 'Control' Report
Here is the result from the Michigan State University analysis. The product was Ground Young Beef, lot#36017. The product was chosen for it's odor by a customer. The MSU lab was chosen by the customer who submitted the sample. The customer related these results to us.

The report shows that the product tested "negative for toxic organic compounds. No drug, pesticide or industrial compound residues observed."
Final Lab Results: 3/31/18
   

   
Alliance Analytical 'Control' Figure 1
The independent laboratory, Alliance Analytical has responded to Schoenborn Family Farms with the results from samples submitted on March 7, 2018. The lab wanted 2 samples to compare: a regular, unaffected Coarse Ground Chicken, lot#05918 and a container of Coarse Ground Chicken, lot#01718 which had a questionable odor.

The evaluation states that "There is no significant
difference between the GasChromatograph/Mass
Spectrometer chromatograms of the two meat samples. This implies that the Meat considered to have a smell is equivalent to the Control
   


   
Alliance Analytical 'Odor' Report
(Good) sample of Meat."
 
In Conclusion
We are pleased that the independent analyses of these products confirm their safety. We feel confident that all of the lots named are safe and chemically untainted by the air at the facility where the Schoenborn staff was working, packaging our food.

For your comfort, several weeks ago we removed from our inventory 6 pallets of various products with the lot numbers

mentioned. These products will not go back into our inventory. They are not for sale.

Please know, you have our deepest appreciation for your patience and understanding throughout all of this. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
