Retailers who received the recalled lots have been contacted and asked to pull these lots from their inventory and shelves. Additionally, consumers who have purchased recalled products should discontinue use and may return the unused portion to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Salmonella can cause illness and death in humans and animals, especially those who are very young, very old, or have weak immune systems. Pets do not always display symptoms when infected with the bacterium, but signs can include vomiting, diarrhea, fever, loss of appetite, and/or decreased activity level.
