Three popular dog food products have been yanked from shelves in retail stores across America over fear they were contaminated with salmonella.
Mid America Pet Food has voluntarily pulled Victor Super Premium Dog Food Select Beef Meal & Brown Rice Formula dry food off the shelves after three randomly tested lots at its Mount Pleasant, Texas, production facility came back positive for salmonella, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revealed.
The best-by date is June 12, 2024, and the lot numbers on the back of the product bags are either 1000016890, 1000016891 or 1000016892.
Blue Ridge Beef issued a separate recall on their Breeders Choice raw pet food due to some of their supply testing positive for salmonella, the FDA announced on Oct. 27. The recalled product contains the UPC code 8 54298 00193 1.
Breeders Choice was sold primarily in retail stores located in the states of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia through October.
TFP Nutrition of Nacogdoches also recalled its 50-pound bags of Retriever All Life Stages Mini Chunk Chicken Recipe Dry Dog Food due to possible salmonella contamination, the FDA revealed on Oct. 21.
The production codes are either 3277 TFP or 3278 TFP and have a best-by date of “10 2024,” the company stated.
The Retriever “Mini Chunk” variety was mostly sold in California, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.
The FDA is advising all retailers and distributors that may be carrying the products to check their inventory and shelves and “immediately” remove the recalled bags.
