Sunshine Mills, Inc has issued a voluntary recall of certain brands of dry dog food due to potential Salmonella.
The firm was notified by the distributor, Fleet Wholesale Supply Company, who was informed by Minnesota Department of Agriculture when a sample of Sprout Sporting Dog Food product was routinely collected and then tested positive for Salmonella during routine surveillance. According to Sunshine Mills, no illnesses, injuries or complaints have been reported to date.
The FDA says that Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products.
The best buy date and lot code can be found on the back of each package. The products identified below were distributed online and in retail stores. One was distributed in stores in Georgia.
The company and the FDA report that there are no other Sportsman’s Pride, Sprout, Intimidator, or FRM Gold Select products or other lot codes of these products affected by this recall.
Consumers may contact Sunshine Mills, Inc. customer service at (800) 705-2111 from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm Central Time, Monday through Friday, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
