Salmonella contamination in Freshpet Select Fresh from the Kitchen Home Cooked Chicken Recipe
A recall is in place for a specific variety of Freshpet Select Fresh from the Kitchen Home Cookie Chicken Recipe that has been sold since June 17, with a sell-by date of October 29, 2022. While there have been no reports of illness or injury in dogs, people handling the contaminated product may contract the disease. As a result, it is important to thoroughly wash your hands after any contact with the recalled product.
The symptoms of a contaminated product include diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever. Healthy individuals are most likely to develop diarrhea, while those with certain medical conditions or immune systems should monitor for signs of illness. Salmonella infection in humans may lead to fever, muscle aches, and urinary tract infections. If your dog is suffering from any of these symptoms, seek medical care immediately.
Those with compromised immune systems should stop feeding their pet the recalled products until further notice. Freshpet has voluntarily recalled a specific lot of pet food with a UPC code. If you are unsure of whether a specific lot of food contains the bacteria, check the UPC code on the back of the bag. If you are unsure of whether a particular product is affected by the recall, it is best to discard it and find a new source for your pet’s food.

FDA recalls Sunshine Mills jerky pet treats
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is expanding a pet food recall to include more than six different brands of jerky treats. The company, Sunshine Mills, Inc., has voluntarily recalled certain brands of dog food due to elevated levels of aflatoxin, a naturally occurring mold by-product. Aflatoxin can cause serious health problems in both humans and pets, but only at high levels. The recalled dog food products were sold under the Ol’ Roy brand.
As a co-packer, Sunshine Mills makes the following brands of jerky: Natural Life, Nutrisca, Orlando, and Sunny Pet. The recalled dog food products were distributed in the United States, Canada, and Europe. The company’s warning letter documents additional violations. In addition to the Sunshine Mills jerky pet treats, Sunshine Mills also produces a variety of other dog foods.
The recalled products bear the establishment number “EST. 4010” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The jerky treats were distributed to retail outlets across the United States and Bermuda. The company also offers pet food consultations. Despite the voluntary recall, consumers can still file complaints about pet food and health issues. The FDA website offers a Consumer Product Incident Report Form to report safety and health incidents. Another service that provides free alerts for recalled dog foods is Dog Food Advisor. These websites offer no spam alerts and provide information on the latest pet food recalls.
