Darwin’s Natural Selections Pet Food Recalled for Possible Salmonella

According to the company’s Facebook page, Darwin’s Natural Selections pet food for dogs and cats is being recalled for possible Salmonella contamination. The company has recalled the products from customers because they ship directly from their factory. The Facebook notice did not list any specific products or lot numbers, but news outlets are reporting that several types of products with varying lot numbers have been affected by this issue.

This product was shipped between September and early October 2017. The recalled products were intended to be fed to both dogs and cats. The products were all in 2 pound packages, and the lot numbers and manufacture dates vary.

These products are not available for purchase in stores. Check with the company if you receive these pet food products and aren’t sure if you purchased the recalled products.

The issue is that dog foods that are contaminated with pathogenic bacteria can sicken humans who handle the food. And if the animal that eats the food gets sick, the animal can pass the illness to people.

Pets who are sick with Salmonella infections may experience diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss, dehydration, and fever. Symptoms in people are similar to those found in pets. If your pet ate these products and has been experiencing these symptoms, take him or her to your veterinarian. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue.

If you have some of these products in your home, throw them away in a sealed or double bagged package so other animals can’t eat them. You can return them to the place of purchase for a full refund as well. Clean out your freezer or refrigerator with a mild bleach solution to kill any remaining bacteria. Also clean out your pet’s bowls and any utensils used to handle the product with soap and water.
