1 post in this topic


I saw this on several news sites today, couldn't find it posted anywhere here already  https://www.9news.com.au/world/balck-hawk-dog-food-product-recall-after-mould-found-growing-in-batches-manufactured-last-year/53ed71cd-f820-44cf-bab7-67a5c4e4f873


Black Hawk – voluntary recall of certain dry dog food.

The quality of our products and the health of pets is paramount. As part of our ongoing quality control processes, we have discovered an issue with specific batches of Black Hawk that were manufactured last year, resulting in mould developing in some products. To date we have had no reports of illness in any animals and if product is affected the mould is very obvious to consumers.

We have made the decision to VOLUNTARILY AND IMMEDIATELY RECALL all of these batches from the market to ensure that we can deliver on our own quality expectations, as well as those of our Black Hawk customers and their pets.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our customer service team directly:

For Australia: 1300 654 279 or [email protected]

For New Zealand: 0800 738 546 or [email protected]

These are the affected products – please check either the Black Hawk Australia or Black Hawk New Zealand website for the best before dates of each product that are affected.
