from Itchmo:

ORIGINAL POST: Due to contaminated rice protein concentrate, Royal
Canin has recalled the following cat and dog products from Canada on
Friday:

Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine EARLY CARDIAC
Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine SENSITIVITY RC (Rice and Catfish)
Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine SKIN SUPPORT
Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline HYPOALLERGENIC HP
Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline SENSITIVITY RD (Rice and Duck)
These differ from the products pulled from the US. Two products,
Feline Sensitivity RD and Canine Sensitivity RC are not currently
recalled in the US. We do not know whether the food was made in Canada
or the US. Therefore, it is also not clear whether the tainted rice
protein went to Canada.

So far, Royal Canin has pulled products due to tainted wheat gluten,
corn gluten and rice protein in the US, Canada, and South Africa. And
is being sued for Vitamin D overdose.
Full release from Medi-Cal Canada homepage after the jump.

They have also promised to no longer use vegetable protein from China.
