List of Pet Foods Recalled Due to Salmonella

When pet food recalls hit, owners are naturally concerned.  And because the news is so successfully buried by the pet food industry, many people are slow to learn about it.  I am going to post a list of brands recalled due to salmonella with links so people interested in learning more about the recalled foods can do so.  As of this posting, only dry pet foods are on the recall list, no treats or canned foods.  The list has changed numerous times so it’s important to keep checking for the latest information on the brand you feed.   (Note:  When it says “click here”, place your cursor over the words “click here” and click your mouse one time.  That will open up a new tab on your browser with the webpage that provides more detailed information.)

If the brand you feed is not on this list and you are wanting more information from the company, click here to visit Google.  While there, type in the brand of food you feed.  Click the link to the company’s website.  Look for anything on the home page titled “recall”, “news”, or similar wording.  You may also wish to click the company’s “contact” page to get the phone number.

Regardless of whether the food you feed is on the recall list, it would be a good idea to find out if the food was made in the contaminated Diamond plant in Gaston, SC.  If you contact the pet food company and are told the food was made at the Gaston plant, I would not recommend feeding it.  The plant was shut down on April 8 due to salmonella contamination.  If the company refuses to tell you exactly where the food was made, citing “proprietary information” or other nonsense, I would not feed it.

Always wash your hands with soap after touching pet food, just as you would after handling raw eggs or meat.  Click here for more info from the CDC on how to minimize your risk.  If you suspect you may have become ill due to salmonella poisoning, click here for info from the CDC.  Symptoms in pets are similar to those in people.

If you do contact a pet food company and receive any additional information, please share in the comments.

  1. Kaytee has also recalled several batches of their Kaytee Exact and Exact Macaw handfeeding formula due to what they call toxic amounts of Vitamin D (mixing mistake). Several aviculturists have lost babies that died after eating this formula.

    Oh no! I have a bag of dry cat food (taste of the wild) that is on the recall list. The bag is half way done. How worried should I be? My cats seem to be ok.

      Salmonellosis usually makes an appearance within 12-24 hours. If they’re not sick yet, they’re not getting sick. That said, don’t finish the bag.

    The local news had the “dog food” recall information on last night. I emailed the anchor and told him that it also involved cat food. This morning I had an email from the news producer who said there are no cat foods on the FDA site! SMH!!! So I sent her some links to check out.
    No wonder people are not hearing the whole truth!

    • I have seen this wrong info given out as well. I’m glad you were able to at least try and get it corrected.
