Pet food recall, September 2008

09/17/2008

There has been a recent recall of some dry pet foods made by Mars Petcare US, due to possible contaminination by Salmonella. The FDA notice and the list of potentially affected pet foods can be found here. The recall includes some Pedigree and Ol' Roy food, as well as others.

If you suspect your pet may have eaten contaminated food, or your pet is showing any worrisome symptoms, such as vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of appetite, please bring your pet to the veterinarian right away, and be sure to let your vet know that your pet ate a food that is on the recall list.

Salmonella also affects humans, who in this case could be sickened due to handling contaminated food, or by contact with an infected pet. If you are concerned about infection in yourself or your family, please contact your own doctor. For questions, you can call 1-877-568-4463.
