Recall of River Run, Marksman dog food that may contain aflatoxin

Share this: 


Recall Dates: Dec. 1, 2010 through Dec. 1, 2011

We know how important your pet is to you.

Cargill is voluntarily recalling River Run and Marksman dog food, because your pet’s health is of the utmost importance to us, too. 

First, we owe you an explanation. 

Corn containing higher-than-acceptable levels of a naturally occurring substance called aflatoxin was delivered to our plant in Lecompte, La. Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring result of mold. We test the corn that comes to our plant before it goes into our pet food. We recently discovered our tests were not working as they should and reported it to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.  

Second, we owe you a promise to fix it.  Specifically, here are some measures we have taken:

  • We have made sure our tests are working properly and no longer underestimating aflatoxin levels.  
  • As a precaution, we are recalling all River Run and Marksman dry dog food on the market in 13 states:  Kansas, Missouri, Northeast Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Western Kentucky, Southeast Indiana, Southern Illinois, Hawaii, and limited areas of Florida and California.  Guam and the Virgin Islands are also affected.

If you have any of the dog food on the recall list, please return it to the store where you bought it for a full refund.

Thank you for your patronage and for taking the time to read this. Here’s how to find out more:
