What to do if you have recalled pet food

Any of the recalled pet food should be placed in a secure container and thrown away. If you have any of these products where you cannot see the date or if you have pet food and are unsure if it could be one of the recalled products (because, for example, it was taken out of the original bag) you should also place it in a secure container and dispose of it safely.

If you have had any of these products in your home home then you should clean and disinfect all pet supplies and all areas where the food was or which your pet may have had contact with. Thoroughly wash your hands after handling the pet food and after cleaning up potentially contaminated areas.

You can call Mid America Pet Food Consumer Affairs on 1-888-428-7544 from 8 AM to 11 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST) seven days a week for additional information.

Be on the look out for signs of infection in humans and pets.

Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause illness and death in humans and animals, particularly in the very old, the very young and those who have weakened immune systems.

People infected with Salmonella can develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. Most people infected with the disease will recover without treatment but some may need to be hospitalized. The treatment is with antibiotics.

Consult your health care provider immediately if you or members of your family have symptoms.

Pets can also be infected by salmonella. They may not show symptoms but signs can include lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea (which may have blood in it), fever and loss of appetite. Contact your vet immediately if your pet has symptoms. When infected, even where they do not have symptoms, pets can spread salmonella bacteria in their feces.

Investigation of suspected outbreak

The investigation is ongoing at the time of writing into seven human cases of salmonella infection potentially associated with pet food made by Mid America Pet Food. Six of the seven cases were in children under the age of one. One person was hospitalized and no deaths have been reported.
