I've used N.B. Venison and Pea... now Duck and pea and my cats loved it and did very well on it. I don't believe it was ever recalled, I think that was the dry dog food, but I could be wrong. In any event, I believe N.B. was the first (and perhaps the only) company to actually put new safely procedures in place after the recall. They now have their own testing plant and, if I remember correctly (it's been a long time since I read the article) they test every batch of food themselves.
Honestly, as upsetting and scary as the recalls were, it could happen with any food at any time, so I wouldn't put too much emphasis on it. The best you can do is find a food with he best ingredients and as few fillers as possible, and hope for the best.
If your cat is prone to allergies I would also try to stay away from foods that have corn, glutens (big reason for recall), fish and soy since they are also major allergy triggers as well as chicken.
