According to the recall announcement, the Georgia state agriculture department had tested a sample bag of this Nature’s Menu dry dog food, and the result was positive for salmonella. Therefore, Sunshine Mills opted to issue a voluntary recall of relevant lots of the dog food, out of an abundance of caution — “in furtherance of [our] commitment to the safety and quality,” according to the company.
The affected dog food was distributed in retail stores across the United States.
The company said no other Nature’s Menu products are part of this recall. Also, there were no reports of illnesses arising from feeding any of the food.
If you have the specific pet food listed above, do not feed it to your pet. Return it to the place of purchase for a full refund, or call Sunshine Mills at 800-705-2111 if you have any questions.
