Posted Sep 26 2008 3:21pm
Pedigree dry food products manufactured at Mars Petcare's Everson, PA plant tested positive for salmonella, leading Mars Petcare to issue a voluntary pet food recall. The recall includes not only Pedigree, but all products produced between February 18 and July 29.
Affected dog foods include:
Paws & Claws
According to Associated Content:
Customers are also urged to look for the number "17" as the first two digits on the second line of the UPC code of a purchased product. Affected bags or products may have "PAE" on the bottom line of the Pedigree brand.
Pedigree's recall is a Class 1 recall, which is considered the most serious. The particular strain of salmonella found, Schwarzengrund, can cause serious health problems and could prove deadly.
