The FDA has issued a recall on Pro-Pet dry dog and cat foods due to possible salmonella contamination. Please spread the word to pet owners and rescue groups so they may discontinue feeding their animals this brand if they have the at-risk batches.

Pro-Pet LLC in St. Marys, Ohio says the products manufactured within a two-day period may have the potential for salmonella contamination, and are voluntarily recalling their products.

No salmonella illnesses have been reported yet in association with these products. Humans can be exposed to the bacteria by handling the food. If you have any of these products, please safely dispose of them immediately.

Symptoms of salmonella poisoning include fever, abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, lethargy and shock. These symptoms may also be found in humans and cats. Failure to treat salmonellosis can lead to gastroenteritis, spontaneous abortions in pregnant dogs, and septicemia.

However, many dogs are asymptomatic carriers, and may shed salmonella for up to 100 days after becoming infected. This may put your family at risk, and it is advisable to have your dog tested by a veterinarian if they have come into contact with the food, even if they do not display symptoms.

Customers may call ProPet at 1-888-765-4190 for more information.
