Update: Nationwide Pet Food Recall

  UNITED STATES — Veterinarian Doctor Andrea Lee says a few of her clients have called with concerns about the latest pet food recall.    
    

“They basically want to know if their dog is okay,” said Fairmount Animal Hospital Veterinarian Dr. Andrea Lee.

Over the weekend, many products made by Mars Petcare were red flagged. This includes a number of national and private label brands, including Pedigree and Wegmans Bruiser dry dog food and Buju and Ziggie cat food.

“The company recalled all of the products made at their Everson, Pennsylvania facility. They were recalled because of the possibility that they are connected to two cases of salmonella in people,” said Wegmans Media Relations Director Jo Natale.

Wegmans has taken the products off their shelves and says so far, the recall is precautionary.

“There has been no definite link with these two cases and no link at all between pet illness and these products,” said Natale. 

Dr. Lee says pet owners who are concerned should watch for symptoms like lethargy, unwillingness to eat, vomiting or diarrhea. But she says despite the Menu Foods scare two years ago, most pet foods today are very safe.

“I think that the manufactured pet foods are very safe for dogs. There are pretty strict regulations for manufacturers of these pet foods and their reputations depend on the safety of their food,” said Dr. Lee.
