Limited Recall of Purina One Dog Food Underway

Posted: Sept. 3, 2013, 11:55 a.m. EDT

 Purina One
Salmonella was found in one bag of White Meat Chicken & Whole Barley Recipe adult dry dog food.
A small amount of Purina One dry dog food is being voluntarily recalled because of potential salmonella contamination, the manufacturer, Nestlé Purina PetCare Co., reported Friday.

Affected are 3.5-pound bags of White Meat Chicken & Whole Barley Recipe Adult Dry Dog Food with a best-by date of October 2014 and the production code 31071083. Both identifiers may be found on the back or bottom of the bag.

No other Purina or Purina One dog or cat products are involved in the recall.

The food was made during a single production run and shipped to U.S. retailers, the company stated. The recall was initiated after a single bag was discovered to be tainted by salmonella.

No salmonella-related illnesses have been reported in connection with the food, the manufacturer added.

Symptoms of salmonella poisoning in animals include lethargy, diarrhea, fever and vomiting. People who handle contaminated pet products may show similar symptoms.

St. Louis-based Nestlé Purina apologized "for any inconvenience” and advised pet owners who purchased the recalled food to call 800-473-8546 to obtain a refund.
