Given the recent recall history in the pet food industry, Vital Essentials Raw has announced they will be implementing a new test and hold process and incorporating high pressure pasteurization (HPP) into their production process. These steps will cover both raw frozen and freeze-dried products from Vital Essentials.
Lanny Viegut, CEO & Owner of Vital Essentials issued a letter to retailers. This letter addresses the company’s decision to move forward with the HPP process.
Vital Essential anticipates stock shortages from April – June 2018 while implementing these new processes. Northland will track Vital’s product availability to get our stock back to normal levels as soon possible.
