i don't know who "Dara" is? i am not on a first name basis with anyone. they posted it on their facebook page. this is what it read: Casey's Hidden Pantry Hi folks. ...an update going forward: we are down to our last 6 LARGE AFS Beef n' Chicken rolls, and 15 AFS small Beef n' Chicken patties. AFS is out indefinitely of these items. ..unknown as to the status of the Sprinkles going forward. Get your items while they last. February 28 at 8:09pm ·LikeUnlike ·

Oooh. Ok. So now I know who Dara is. LOL. I order a lot from them (the dog and ferrets food). But yes you are right they only put that on facebook. I hadn't noticed that I figured it was on the website too. They posted on Facebook that in a few weeks Stella and chewy's is coming out with their feline freeze dried formula.
I got a response from Dara at Casey's Hidden Pantry and it is all good news. She gave me permission to post this as well.
No, the AFS patties are not being discontinued. I can see how there may be some confusion, though, because they are changing the recipe for the Beef and Chicken blend. AFS is reducing the amount of beef organs in the blend, thereby changing the name to Chicken and Beef blend - as is directed by AAFCO. AAFCO requires the name to be indicative of the products in the food, and since there will be a higher percentage of chicken in the new blend, the name will have to be changed to Chicken and Beef, as opposed to Beef and Chicken.
I hope that makes sense.
CHP has the last of the old Beef and Chicken blend. We have 4 rolls of the large patties left, and 13 packs of the small patties.
Also, we were at the Chicago Pet Expo this past weekend and had the chance to talk with Stella and Chewy's in person. We are VERY excited that their new feline formulas are in production and slated to come out in the next 4-6 weeks. The new feline are similar to the former feline - 100% meat/bone/organ. Instead of patties, they come in little mini marshmallow shapes, similar to the S&C Crunch treats. The blends I saw were: Chicken, Chicken and Beef, Chicken and Salmon, and Beef. Once they become available, CHP will start stocking it.
Hope that makes sense. Feel free to contact us with questions whenever you want.
