    In April I bought about a half dozen of these for my three year olds birth month. He got sick, sicker and died on April 30, just 10 days after his third birthday. He was an indoor only service cat, except for time we spent outside together on the fourth floor balcony or traveling on the bus and train, yes he was on a leash. Occasionally we walked around outside in the complex. It was nearly a month after the fact the food was recalled, the lot numbers on the remaining container are indeed a match for the recalled food.

    Their initial offer was a coupon for more cat food. What party of my cat died do they not understand. Last week I get a call first apologizing for no one calling before then. They offered to pay the vet bills, paused and decided to hang up and call back. Then they offered to pay the cremation and vet bills. I’m wondering if there are a lot our at least a few dead cats out there, should I seek an attorney as I was about to?

    My cat is never sick. Now I’m in the PET ER with her.

    I’m sending them the bill for this. My cat better be okay!

    Shame on you Rachael Ray,. You would put your name on such terrible, dangerous dry cat food.. Lucky for my cat, he was smart enough to know something was very wrong with the stuff, he wouldn’t eat it. I will never watch your show again! Shame on you! How many pets have died eating your unsafe product?

    I don’t have a cat I have two mini dashhounds! I recently switched there dogs food to the Rachel ray nutrish! My dogs in four days have gotten so sick! For the last two days they have been having seizures, don’t eat, can hardly walk and the only liquid they drink is the water I give them from a syringe! This is so horrible to watch my dogs just fade away! I have watched two people take there last breath but I never thought I would have to watch my dogs die!

    We lost our beautiful healthy 6 year old dog to Rachael Ray food Nutrish. She suffered horribly for 9 months. We will never get over it. NEVER. Does anyone know how to start a Class Action Lawsuit? If so let me know

    1. Tammy

      Sounds like there are a lot of people that have had their animal very sick or die because of this food.
      We are researching the class action lawsuit. Stay tuned..

      What food were you on? I just started nutrish beef and brown rice just two days ago based on raving reviews of this. I have only mixed a little each feeding with my one year old goldens Purina one puppy. I am thinking about stopping it right now and just sticking with a Purina product.

    My dog has been eating Rachel Ray’s Zero Grain Nutrish for over a year now. Over the past year, her teeth have began to decay and fall out and she now has several bumps which appear to be tumors… At first, I just assumed this was due to her being 9 years old. Now, after doing some research, I am worried she is getting sick–or already is sick–from eating crap. I feel awful because she seems to love the food and I bought it for her thinking it appeared to be the least expensive high quality dog food… I hope that she has not been too poisoned by this stuff for a raw food diet to make her better…

    Started my 8 year old dachshund on Rachael Ray Nutrish over a month ago, thinking it was healthy with natural ingredients. My dog has broken out all over his body, under his arms, legs and belly. At first, I thought it was ringworm, had a friend look and she knew exactly what it was. First thing she asked me was did I change his food. I immediately took him off & ordered Malasab shampoo with Ketoconazole wipes. I also had to buy vaginal cream for yeast on him. He has little spots with hair loss all over him. I will never buy it again nor recommend it.

    Older dog owners beware!! I have a 10 yr old basset and after only 1/2 bag of this product he can no longer hold his stools. It’s a bad Situation. Peace out Rachael.

    Following this thread. We had to put our 9 year old healthy pug to sleep last Wednesday, unexpectedly. He lost weight and then lost control of his bowels. Took him to the ER last Tuesday cause he was acting disorientated. Then Wednesday morning, he started having seizures. He had 7 of them in 2.5 hours. Rushed him to the vet, but nothing could be done to stabilize him. Vet said he appeared to be suffering from a build up of toxins. The only thing that changed was his food. We had been feeding him RR’s Nutrish since the beginning of Nov. After doing some research online, I’m convinced this food poisoned and killed our beloved Zeus.

    My Shih Tzu was fine until she ate Rachel Ray dog food. After eating it, loose stool was just coming out of her and it appears she had no control. Never seen anything like it. She ended up very sick and needed fluids, special diet and expensive dog food from the vets. She ended up with a pancreatic disorder. Prior to eating this toxic dog food, my dog was happy and healthy. She had a couple of rounds of going to the vets and we almost lost her a few times. She suffered a lot by wasting away yet always hungry not matter how much she would eat. She crossed the rainbow bridge in November 2016. I feel like if she never ate this dog food that she would be healthy and still with us. On a side note, I did contract Rachel Ray’s company and one of their “vets” asked me a few questions but I received no response from them. I paid probably thousands in vet bills, special foods, medicine, etc. to keep her alive and try to make her well. Didn’t happen. No offer of compensation or apology from Rachel Ray or her company.

    While looking for dog food for our new pup, I noticed RR food, and since I always check where the food is made, I noticed that her bag said ” American factory” …….. so does that mean made in China ? All the other foods I checked said ”made in USA. …. so is her food made in China ?

    Idk what to thinknor day. My 6 yr old pit actually got muscle strength nicer coat. Doing some research. But will stop until i have solid ground. Sorry for the loss of some wonderful dogs and cats.

    My nine year old mini schnauzer went to the vet to get his teeth cleaned. Vet calls us and Chopper had to have emergency surgery because his kidneys were not working properly and he was VERY constipated. Never had any issues before. Switched back to Iams and so glad I did in time. He is much better now.

    Third bag of Rachael ray dog food almost killed my two dogs. Never thought dog food by a well known name could have done this.

  17. Jennifer Dailey

    my dog has been puking and now had a red rash after being on RR….disappointed I can’t believe she puts her name on this stuff

  18. Gary Deck

    My dog has had an extreme allergic reaction this week. The only new addition to her diet was a RR soupbone. Has anyone else encountered this?
