Why is the food being recalled?

Signs of salmonella poisoning in pets


Symptoms of salmonella poisoning in dogs and cats include:

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea (may contain blood or mucus)
  • Decreased appetite
  • Lethargy
  • Dehydration
  • Fever

If you notice your pet showing any of these symptoms, take him to the vet right away.

Some dogs or cats with salmonella poisoning may show no symptoms, but they can be carriers and spread the illness to other animals or even people.

You can also contract salmonella if you don’t properly wash your hands after feeding your pet or picking up after him, or if you don’t clean surfaces touched by your pet’s food. Signs of salmonella infection in people include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and fever. If you have any of these symptoms, contact your doctor.

What to do next


If you bought any of these products, stop using them immediately. You can return them to the store where you bought them for a full refund.

Be sure to clean any areas where the food had contact, like your pet’s food and water bowls, your fridge, food surfaces, utensils, and your pet’s bedding and toys. Since salmonella can be spread through animal feces, make sure you clean up your pet’s poop in your yard or any other areas where other animals or people can come into contact with it. And wash your hands thoroughly after touching your pet’s food or feces to avoid spreading bacteria.
