Albright’s Raw Dog Food of Fort Wayne, IN recalled 67 cases of Chicken Recipe for Dogs due to potential contamination of Salmonella, a bacterial disease that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in animals consuming the products and humans handling the contaminated items.
According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), common signs and symptoms of a pet being infected with Salmonella often experience fever, bloody diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
The recalled product was distributed in CA, FL, IL, IN, NH, NJ, NV, NY, PA, and TN.
Albright’s Raw Dog Food was recalled after a routine sampling in a later lot of the finished product found the bacteria. Due to this, the later finished product lot was not released and continues to stay in a quarantined state.
In response to this, the company has provided information to the retailers who have purchased the recalled product. They urge retailers to contact their customers to facilitate the return of the contaminated products.
The company also encourages consumers who have purchased the dog food to not let their pets consume the product and to return it to point-of-sale for a full refund immediately.
No other Albright’s Raw Dog Food products were affected or involved in this recall. There have also been no reported illnesses to date.
