Today I received an AVMA Animal Alert announcing yet another pet food recall. Primal Pet Foods of San Mateo, California is recalling their four pound Feline Salmon and Chicken Formula. It is feared that the raw chicken and salmon nuggets may be contaminated with Salmonella. For more information, see the Primal Pet Foods website or contact them directly at (866) 566-4652. So far, no known pet or human illness has been reported. This is a voluntary recall by the company.
Please remember that freezing does not kill pathogenic bacteria like E. coli or Salmonella in raw foods. Use caution whenever handling raw foods for human or animal consumption. I recommend running all food bowls and utensils through a dishwasher after every feeding. This also will prevent children from contact with a bowl that contains remnants from your pet’s meal.
