Dear Valued Customer,

I regret to inform you that, as of August 19, 2020, we will receive our last Blue Ridge Beef shipment until further notice.

On August 19, 2020, I was made aware, by the U.S. FDA Warning Letter (link below), that Blue Ridge Beef's FDA registration is cancelled.  Although the FDA has allowed Blue Ridge Beef to remain operational and there are no existing product recalls, I am taking action to cease future orders until Corrective Actions have been completed and satisfied fully with the U.S. FDA.

 I have personally spoken to the FDA and am confident in this decision.

You will be hearing from your local store on further assistance.  We will be assisting you in other raw foods that we carry. We have allowed one final shipment of Blue Ridge Beef to avoid any feeding hardships and allow time for our customers to use their own discretion.

The Natural Dog and Nature’s Emporium are dedicated to the total health and nutrition of animals. Since 1971, we have been providing local pet expertise to our customers. You can continue to trust our commitment to pet health and nutrition.

Sincerely,
Scotty Tanner, CEO
