Burt's Bees does that. Occasionally, their formulas change slightly because certain ingredients aren't available, or aren't up to their liking. They attach a small sticker over the top of the old ingredient list with the updated ingredients.
In terms of pet food, I realize that they mass produce their packaging, so it would cost a lot of money to throw out old bags and make more. I really think putting the stickers/labels onto the bags if they change the formula would be a viable alternative. That way, they don't lose as much money, but also we know exactly what's in the food between recipe changes.
