What to Do?
Salmonella is serious business — for both you and your pet. So, if you can confirm your dog’s food is one of the products being recalled, stop feeding or handling it immediately.
If you’ve discarded the packaging (something we recommend younever do) – or you’re in any way in doubt – do not take chances. Be safe. Stop feeding the product anyway.
