Orijen Dry Cat Food

Champion Pet Foods has been marketing and exporting pet foods worldwide since 1975. Orijen is unique, since it is never packaged anywhere other than the Champion Pet Foods manufacturing facility. Many of the main ingredients in Orijen's cat food formulas are locally obtained. Also, Orijen pet food products do not use proteins that have been previously frozen, and are marketed as being hormone-free. Though there are currently no recalls of Orijen pet food products in the USA, Orijen has had to recall their cat food from Australia. This is because upon entry to Australia, the cat food was exposed to high levels of gamma radiation. No other countries are affected by this recall, and Orijen has now stopped selling their product in Australia.
