Evanger's Dog and Cat Food Co. filed a formal request with the FDA seeking a reinstatement order allowing it to resume interstate shipping of its canned petfood products, according to the company's blog .
Earlier in June, the FDA ordered the firm to halt interstate distribution of the products , saying it was not in compliance with some food processing rules.
"Our company has been working closely with the FDA and we have already addressed many of their questions," says Joel Sher, vice president of Evanger's. "No Evanger's product has been recalled, nor is there any indication that Evanger's products are unsafe or contaminated in any way."
