Abady Highest Quality Maintenance & Growth Formula for Cats

Robert Abady Dog Food Co. is recalling a small amount of dry cat food because of potential salmonella contamination, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration reported Tuesday.

The recalled Highest Quality Maintenance & Growth Formula for Cats is made with chicken meal and menhaden fish meal. The food was packaged in 2-, 5- and 15-pound corrugated boxes stamped with lot number 14029/21 on the top of the box.

Routine testing of one batch revealed the presence of salmonella. No illnesses among cats or pet owners have been traced to the food, the FDA stated.

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

Anyone who bought the recalled food may return it to the store for a refund. The Poughkeepsie, N.Y., company is fielding questions about the recall at 845-473-1900 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern time Monday through Friday.

A positive salmonella test forced Abady to recall two frozen dog foods in June 2013. Recalled were 3-pound bags of Abady Frozen High Stress/High Performance Dog Food and Abady Frozen Growth Formula for Puppies of the Large & Giant Breed.
