This is misleading. According to Purina's website, *only* Alpo is
affected, and *only* the cuts and gravy variety. Your post implies
that all Purina foods across the board are affected, which appears
to be incorrect.

from http://www.purina.com

"Importantly, no Purina brand dry pet foods are affected by the
recall - including ALPO Prime Cuts dry."
