Three popular dog foods recalled due to potential Salmonella contamination

Three popular dog food products have been yanked from shelves in retail stores across America over fear they were contaminated with Salmonella.

Mid America Pet Food has voluntarily pulled Victor Super Premium Dog Food Select Beef Meal & Brown Rice Formula dry food off the shelves after three randomly tested lots at its Mount Pleasant, Texas production facility came back positive for Salmonella, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revealed last Monday.

The recalled products come in five-pound, 15-pound, and 40-pound bags and are sold in retail stores across the US.

The best-by-date is June 12, 2024, and the lot numbers on the back of the product bags are either 1000016890, 1000016891, or 1000016892.

Blue Ridge Beef issued a separate recall on their Breeders Choice raw pet food due to some of their supply testing positive for Salmonella, the FDA announced on Oct. 27.

The recalled product contains the UPC code 8 54298 00193 1.

Breeders Choice was sold primarily in retail stores located in the States of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia through October.

The dog food Retriever All Life Stages Mini Chunk Chicken Recipe Dry Dog Food made by TFP Nutrition of Nacogdoches also recalled their 50-pound bags due to possible Salmonella contamination, the FDA revealed on Oct. 21.

The production codes are either 3277 TFP or 3278 TFP and have a “best by” date of “10 2024,” the company stated.

The Retriever “Mini Chunk” variety was mostly sold in California, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.

The FDA is advising all retailers and distributors that may be carrying the products to check their inventory and shelves and “immediately” remove the recalled bags.

“Do not sell or donate the recalled products,” the FDA stated.

Pet owners are being asked to destroy the food so that children, pets, and wildlife cannot consume it.

“Do not sell or donate the recalled products,” the FDA stated.

Animals infected with Salmonella can appear lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, or experience vomiting.

“If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian,” the FDA said.

The risk of a dog getting infected with Salmonella is low, but health experts warn that their four-legged companions can carry the illness and make their owners sick.

Humans who come in contact with the products should thoroughly wash their hands and clean any surface the products may have touched.

In humans, salmonella can also cause diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps, with symptoms beginning about six hours to six days after infection.

Around 1.3 million people are infected by Salmonella in America each year, resulting in 26,500 hospitalizations and 420 deaths, according to the CDC.

No human or pet Salmonella illnesses have been reported concerning the contaminated products since the announcement.
