Several dozen bags of Science Diet Adult Small & Toy Breed dry dog food distributed through a handful of veterinary clinics and pet stores have been recalled because of potential salmonella contamination.

The voluntary recall involves 62 bags and 17 locations in California, Hawaii and Nevada, according to the manufacturer, Hill?s Pet Nutrition Inc. of Topeka, Kan.

The 15.5-pound bags show the SKU number 9097 on the bottom, side panels and back side. The recalled bags also bear the "Best Before" date and production code 08 2015 M094 at the top of the bag.

No dogs were reported sickened by the food, Hill's reported. Symptoms of salmonella poisoning in pets include lethargy, diarrhea, fever and vomiting. People who handle contaminated pet products may exhibit similar symptoms.

The food was made during a single production run and was not intended for distribution, Hill?s stated. The bags were discovered missing during "routine inventory reconciliation,? the company added.

The company is fielding questions about the recall at 800-445-5777 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Central time Monday through Friday.
