There have been no reports of illness. Routine safety testing by the company determined that an ingredient from a supplier was contaminated and are issuing the recall out of an abundance of caution.

According to the FDA report, “Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.”
