Feline’s Pride Cat Food Recall

Filed under: News — Dr. Amber Reed @ 7:39 pm

Recently, the FDA has issued a warning about Feline’s Pride cat food potentially being contaminated with SalmonellaSalmonella is a bacteria that can affect both humans and pets and handling foods that are contaminated with this bacteria can put your health at serious risk.  While children, the elderly, and individuals who are immune-compromised are particularly at risk, it is important to understand that Salmonella infection carries potentially life-threatening results for all humans.

Feline’s Pride is a popular raw cat food that is frozen but shipped to cat owners around the United States.  While there have been no reports of illness in humans or animals as a result of this potential contamination, the FDA has released a voluntary recall on all Feline’s Pride cat food purchased and shipped between June 10th and 17th, 2010.  More specifically, the recall is for Feline’s Pride Raw food with ground bone for cats and kittens.  The Natural Chicken Formula, sold in weights of 2.5 lbs was produced on June 10, 2010.

While the market for Feline’s Pride cat food is quite small, if you or your friends order the product for your cats you need to take special care.  If you choose not to recall the food, you should be careful to thoroughly wash your hands after handling this product.  It is always advisable to keep raw food products out of the reach of children, especially in the case where a recall has been ordered by the FDA.

Symptoms of Salmonella infection include nausea, decreased appetite, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, fever, and headache.  As mentioned, special populations like children and the elderly will be more at risk to develop the infection and they may also have more severe symptoms.  Pets suffering from Salmonella poisoning often suffer diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, fever, loss of appetite, fever, and abdominal pain.
