Salmonella Threat Causes Solid Gold Dog Food Recall
A pet food product is being recalled because of the possibility that it may contain salmonella.
Recently, there have been a number of recalls in regards to various Diamond pet food products that were at risk of being contaminated by salmonella. These Diamond pet food products were made at a plant that also produces other pet food items. Thus, other products made at that plant might also contain salmonella.
It’s this danger that has led the El Cajon, California-based Solid Gold Health Products for Pets, Inc. to recall two products. The recall affects one batch each of Solid Gold Wolfking Large Breed Adult Dog and WolfCub Large Breed Puppy Food. Affected batches come in 4 and 15 pound bags, and the puppy food is also available in 33 pound sizes while the adult dog food is also sold in 28.5 pound bags. The products have a best by date of December 30, 2012.
Consumers should be on the lookout for the batch code SGB1201A31X (for the puppy food) and SGL1201A32X (for the adult food). Dogs who have contracted salmonella typically show signs of lethargy, loss of appetite, diarrhea and vomiting. People may also be in danger should they make contact with a pet food product that has salmonella.
Consumers should be alert for salmonella symptoms in themselves and their pets and contact a doctor or veterinarian accordingly.
