This article focuses on the introduction of new pet food products with "no wheat" labels following a series of recalls in the U.S. 2007. The main beneficiaries in the brand-switching trend will be higher-quality pet foods, such as natural and organic pet foods, and the often overlapping product segments of raw/frozen, refrigerated, homemade, 100 percent U.S.-sourced, locally grown, and other smaller-batch pet foods. Sales of pet food products prior to the recalls is discussed.
