Dog Food Recall Alert: Salmonella Contamination

A raw dog food brand is recalling several of their food products due to possible contamination. According to officials at Darwin’s Natural Pet Products, tests have confirmed Salmonella in some of their dog foods.

According to a letter by President Gary Tashjian, they haven’t received any reports of sick dogs from customers. But the company is being cautious and notifying distributors. 

According to the FDA, it’s uncommon for healthy dogs to become sick from Salmonella. However, dogs with weakened immune systems (such as puppies or older dogs) have a higher risk of becoming sick. Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic, experience decreased appetite, fever, abdominal pain, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, and vomiting. 

The Proud Dog Mom team reached out to Darwin’s Natural Pet Products via phone today, December 8th, 2017. We were able to verify the recall and lot numbers pet parents need to be on the lookout for.
