PRODUCT QUALITY NOTICE FROM ROYAL CANIN USA

Dear Breeder:

As a fellow pet lover and very important part of the pet welfare community,
Royal Canin USA wants to inform you personally that we recently announced a
recall of eight Royal Canin USA dry pet food products that contain rice
protein concentrate (rice gluten) from China tainted with a melamine
derivative.

We assure you it is our primary focus to provide healthy diet options for
your breed, and we are taking all of the necessary steps to resolve this
issue. That is why as a precaution, Royal Canin USA is voluntarily
recalling the following eight dry pet food products.

These are the only Royal Canin USA pet food products that are part of our
recall. All of our other products are safe for dogs and cats to eat.
