Recall of pet food: Do not feed this food to your dog at this time.
(WKRC) - CINCINNATI - Due to a potential of contamination, a pet food company has issued a recall on certain bags of dog food.
Salmonella was identified in several samples during standard testing, according to the business.
Infection is a problem for both pets who eat the food and humans who handle it.
The Raw Cornish Hen pet food from Woody's Pet Food Deli is being recalled "with supplements."
The US Food and Drug Administration announced the recall on its website.
The following lots are being recalled, according to the press release:
PLU Code 5230, expiration date 11/20/22, 5 pound. plastic tub
PLU Code 1652, expiration date 11/20/22, 15 oz. plastic container
If you bought either lot, you should stop feeding it to your dog right away and either throw it away or return it for a full refund.
All surfaces that the food may have come into contact with, including as pet bowls, food prep tables, toys, and bedding, should be cleaned and disinfected.
Furthermore, according to Woody's Pet Food Deli, you should dispose of all pet feces and clean any surfaces where it may have come into contact with bacteria, as the bacteria can live this way.
Finally, after disposing of the food and cleaning, wash your hands completely.
Salmonella can cause lethargy, diarrhea, bloody bowel movements, fever, and vomiting in pets.
Although not all pets will show symptoms, they might still carry the disease and infect other animals or humans.
