PURINA has never been recalled in past 2 incidents

I’ve noticed that between this current Pedigree dog food Salmonella scare & with the China dog food poison scare, the dog food brand, “Purina”, has not been affected. Of course, who is to say it can’t happen to them in the future — but so far I (& my dogs) have been lucky that I’ve chosen to buy Purina for them instead of any of the other brands.
