Mouse, rat, hamster food recalled for salmonella contamination

Posted on

Kaytee Pet Products has announced a voluntary recall for a single production batch of its Kaytee Forti-Diet Pro Health Mouse, Rat and Hamster food due to the potential that it has been contaminated by Salmonella.Products affected by this recall include Kaytee Forti-Diet Pro Health Mouse, Rat & Hamster food in 3, 5, 6, and 25 pound packages imprinted with best buy dates ranging from March 30, 2013 to April 3, 2013 and universal price codes 100502315, 100502085, and 100502275. The recall has been issued as a response to a Salmonella contamination discovered in random sample testing performed by representatives from the United States Food and Drug Administration. The products affected by this recall were manufactured between January 5, 2012 and January 6, 2012. Kaytee Pet Products has begun to remove the product from stores and investigate the cause of the salmonella contamination. Animals fed contaminated food products may become ill, and humans handling the feed without properly washing their hands afterwards may also experience symptoms related to salmonella contamination such as vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, stomach pain, and high body temperature. In some cases, salmonella can cause arthritis, arterial infection, muscle or eye pain and urinary tract infection.

As a personal injury attorney in Bakersfield, I hope this recall is carried out quickly and effectively before anyone is made ill by this potential contamination. If you or someone you love has been harmed by a contaminated product, please consider contacting a Fresno personal injury lawyer.
