Dog food salmonella

Darwin's Natural Pet Products recalled select lots of its Darwin's ZooLogics dog food, which includes ZooLogics Chicken and Vegetable Meals for Dogs manufactured November 2, 2017 and ZooLogics Duck and Vegetable Meals for Dogs manufactured November 16, 2017.

The findings prompted Christofersen Meats Company Inc., manufacturer of Raws for Paws Ground Turkey Food for Pets, to recall all lots of Raws for Paws Ground Turkey Food for Pets that were manufactured on October 12, 2017.

The site also stated that the company's president Jeff Sutherland released a statement that explained: "On 2/5/2018, we were notified by the Colorado Department of Agriculture that a single sample collected from a retail location detected salmonella".

Following in the footsteps of 2 other pet food manufacturers, Redbarn Pet Products has voluntarily recalled its 7-inch Bully Stick 3-packs due to possible Salmonella contamination.

ZooLogics Duck with Vegetable Meals for Dogs lot 41957 and ZooLogics Chicken with Vegetable Meals for Dogs lot 41567 were sold online.

Four pet food companies issued recalls after reports surfaced about salmonella contamination killing or making animals and humans sick.

Arrow Reliance Inc., doing business as Darwin's Natural Pet Food, issued the latest in a series of recall notices on Saturday.

Since 2016, Arrow Reliance/Darwins Natural has recalled seven raw pet food products. The affected products were sold in pet specialty stores nationwide with an expiration date of 112120ABC. The product UPC number is #7 85184 25105 8.

Raws for Paws, based in Minneapolis, is recalling about 4,000 pounds of its 5-pound and 1-pound sealed plastic tubes of ground turkey pet food because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Nevertheless, the company is recalling the product out of an abundance of caution. The manufacture date of Turkey Pet Food cases is 10/12/2017, and the manufacture dates of Combo Pack cases are between 10/12/2017 and 2/2/2018.

The product comes in a 4-oz bags marked with UPC 78565857957 and lot 449294 and with a best used by date of 10/25/19 stamped on the back.

The FDA says salmonella can cause salmonellosis in humans and animals. Pets do not have to be apparently ill to be able to pass Salmonella to their human companions.

What are the Symptoms of Salmonella Infection (Salmonellosis)?

"Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain".

The majority of people recover without treatment, the FDA said.

Although not all pets display symptoms when infected, those who do may have symptoms within 72 hours of infection. Also pets that have consumed these products and are showing symptoms of a salmonella infection should be taken to the vet.

Who is at Risk of Salmonellosis?

The FDA said it has a zero-tolerance policy for salmonella or other harmful bacteria in pet food.

Symptoms of Listeria monocytogeness include diarrhea, fever and muscle cramps.
