Frozen Dog Food Recalled for Salmonella Contamination

New York-based Robert Abady Dog and Cat Food Corporation is voluntarily recalling two “limited specialty products” of frozen pet food due to Salmonella contamination:

1. Abady Frozen High Stress/High Performance Dog Food — 3 lbs.

2. Abady Frozen Growth Formula for Puppies of the Large & Giant Breed — 3 lbs.

The products were found positive for Salmonella during testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Humans may contract Salmonella from handling contaminated pet food or infected pets without washing their hands.

No illnesses have been connected to the product, but given the time involved in tracing illnesses to a specific product, it is impossible to say if any cases will surface.

“Our first priority is to produce foods with great care and keeping in mind the safety of pets and their owners,” the company said in a statement posted on their website. “We have many safety measures in place, and continually search for the best technologies and procedures to ensure product safety.”
