In the latest of a string of pet food recalls due to potential Salmonella concerns, Nestle Purina PetCare Co. of St. Louis is recalling about 870 bags of dry cat food shipped to customers in Colorado, Idaho and Oregon. In turn, those customers may have distributed the affected product to other Western states, the company reported.
There have been no consumer complaints and no reports of illness, Nestle Purina reported, and no other Purina cat or dog products are involved.
Nestle encourages consumers who have purchased the products to discard them and contact the company at 800-982-6559 or at its website regarding more information or a product refund.
The recalled products are Cat Chow Naturals Dry Cat Food (6.3-pound bag, UPC 17800) and Friskies Grillers Blend Dry Cat Food (3.15- and 16-pound bags, UPC 50000). All products have a “Best By” date of “AUG 2012” and date and production code of “10331083 13” or “10331083 06”; that data is listed on the back or bottom of the bags.
