This recall was initiated following routine sampling of the products by the manufacturer, which found that some of the finished products may be contaminated with salmonella.

The bacteria can sicken both pets and people, but no illnesses have been reported so far, according to the recall announcement.

The recall covers only certain products manufactured at Midwestern Pet Foods’ facility in Monmouth, Illinois.  The unique Monmouth facility identifier is located in the date code as an “M.” An example of the date code looks like this on the packages:

EXP AUG/02/22/M#/L#

The products were distributed to retailers both online and in brick-and-mortar stores across the United States. If you have any of the specific packages listed above, do not feed them to your pets. Instead, do the following, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration:

“Destroy the food in a way that children, pets and wildlife cannot access them. Wash and sanitize pet food bowls, cups and storage containers. Always ensure you wash and sanitize your hands after handling recalled food or any utensils that come in contact with recalled food.”

You can get a refund at your place of purchase, or call Midwestern Pet Foods at 800-474-4163, ext. 455, for more information.
