  7. i give my dog natural balance and i live in malaysia. is malaysia natural balance ok??

    • Derek – There are several manufacturing plants around the America that produce the same food. This recall is for the plant located in South Carolina I believe. You can check the bag of food you have to see if the numbers for the recall are the same as the ones you bought for your dog. If you have a question contact the store you purchased your food from and ask them who their distributor is and if they know where the food is sourced from in the US. Some brands have Asian factories as well.

  8. there is no recall in malaysia or they cover it up?? (natural balance )_
