This was on Itchmo today. Some progress being made.....

The Food and Drug Administration has shut down Castleberry’s food plant in Augusta, Georgia. In July 2007, Castleberry went through a massive recall of canned chili linked to botulism poisoning.
Castleberry Foods produces Natural Balance Eatables for Dogs. (Natural Balance also recalled cans of Natural Balance Eatables for Dogs (http://www.itchmo.com/natural-balance-recalls-food-due-to-botulism-risk-1815) for possible botulism risk during the canned chili recall.)
The suspension of its operating permit and shutdown was ordered on Friday, and a FDA spokesperson said that part of the processing lines used to make food were not being operated properly and this could result in underprocessed cans of food.

It's all so frustrating, isn't it? For anyone who wants to consider a homecooked option, there are recipes in the Library section.
