Aqueon Betta Food Recalled For Possible Salmonella Contamination

Central Aquatics of Franklin, Wisconsin is recalling 96 cases of Aqueon Betta Food because it may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. This poses a health hazard to fish pets and to the people who handle the food, especially if they have not thoroughly wash their hands after handling the food or any surfaces that may have come into contact with the food. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall.

The recalled product is Aqueon Betta Food sold in 0.95 ounce glass jars. The item number on the product is 100106051, the UPC number is  0 15905 06051 6, and the expiration dates are EX04JUN22 and EX05JUN22.. The manufacturing dates on the food are 06/04/2019 and 06/05/2019. The product was distributed to Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

Fish who are infected with Salmonella bacteria do not show any signs of the illness; these infections are not well documented. In people, symptoms of Salmonella infections include fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea that may bloody.

The outside laboratory contracted to conduct and read Salmonella testing for the company mistakenly indicated that the two lots were negative for Salmonella, when they were actually positive for the pathogen.

Anyone who has purchased this product with the UPC number and manufacturing and expiration dates listed above should not use it and should discard it immediately. Wrap the product in foil or plastic wrap and put it into a secure garbage can with a tight fitting lid. You can also return the product to the place of purchase for a refund.
