Announcement: FDA recall notice dated Dec. 16, 2022 (archived here)
What was recalled: 16 lb. bags of H-E-B Texas Pets Indoor Complete Dry Cat Food with Production Code “MFG 13 NOV 22”
TFP Nutrition has announced a voluntary recall of a batch of its H-E-B Texas Pets Indoor Complete Dry Cat Food due to potential contamination with salmonella. The affected product was manufactured on Nov. 13, 2022, at the company’s facility in Nacogdoches, Texas, and was distributed only in that state and sold exclusively in H-E-B retail stores.
Salmonella can affect animals that consume contaminated products and also poses a risk to humans who handle the products, particularly if they do not wash their hands thoroughly after contact. No cases of illness in either cats or humans have been reported in relation to the recalled cat food at this time.
Cats with salmonella infections may display symptoms such as lethargy, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some infected cats may only exhibit decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Even if they are otherwise healthy, infected cats can act as carriers and spread the infection to other animals or humans.
The recalled product can be identified by the “MFG 13 NOV 22” code on the second line of the lot code located on the back of the bag. The affected product has been removed from store shelves, and no other H-E-B products are part of this recall.
