This is all becoming so surreal. I hope someone will investigate and document the activities of these greedy persons of unacknowledgeable parentage who are responsible so they can be charged, tried, found guilty, and fined to such an extent that they no longer have the shekels to influence political campaigns and/or deregulation initiatives.

Sierra Pet Products, LLC Issues Nationwide Recall of "Harmony Farms" Canned Dog Foods, "Harmony Farms" Canned Cat Foods and "Harmony Farms" Dog Treats
Manufactured at American Nutrition, Inc.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- April 27, 2007 -- SIERRA PET PRODUCTS, LLC, Wilton, CT, is initiating a nationwide recall of all canned dog foods, all canned cat food and all dog treats sold under its "Harmony Farms" brand. The Company is taking this voluntary action after learning that the FDA has confirmed the
presence of melamine, a substance not approved for use in food, in rice
protein concentrate used by the contract manufacturer in the production of
some of these products.

It should be noted the "Harmony Farms" canned dog and cat food products were not formulated or labeled to contain rice protein concentrate, and that the manufacturer, American Nutrition, Inc. added the rice protein concentrate to these products without Sierra Pet Products' knowledge or consent. For this reason, Sierra Pet Products is concerned that it can not have any faith in the integrity, or the accuracy of the ingredient labels of any of its products
manufactured by American Nutrition. Therefore Sierra Pet Products is
withdrawing all products manufactured by American Nutrition, including
products that American Nutrition claims do not contain rice protein. The FDA investigation into the inclusion of the rice protein by American Nutrition in
the "Harmony Farms" products is ongoing.

Consumers who have any of the "Harmony Farms" can dog foods, can cat foods, or dog treats that are being recalled should stop using the products immediately, and return any unused or partially used products to the retailer where they
were purchased, for a full refund.

Sierra Pet Products has not received any reports of pet illness from any of
the recalled products, but consumers are advised to speak with their
veterinarian about any concerns for their pet's health.

The recall includes the following:

  a.. All Cans of "Harmony Farms" dog food
  b.. All Cans of "Harmony Farms" cat food
  c.. All "Harmony Farms" dog treats
NO HARMONY FARMS DRY DOG OR CAT FOODS SOLD IN BAGS ARE MANUFACTURED AT
AMERICAN NUTRITION. NONE OF THESE DRY DOG OR CAT FOODS ARE INVOLVED IN THIS
RECALL.

FDA has been apprised of this action, and Sierra Pet Products will continue to
cooperate with the FDA in its investigation of this matter.

Sierra Pet Products has not received any complaints of illness or renal
failure associated with the use of any of the recalled products.

Sierra Pet Products has notified its distributors and retailer customers of this recall by phone and letter and is arranging for return and credit for all
recalled products.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-808-1664.
