Go Raw, LLC is recalling its 2 pound frozen bags of Quest Beef Cat Food for possible Salmonella contamination. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue.

Quest Beef Cat Food Recalled For Possible Salmonella

The Quest Beef Cat Food is sold in 2 pound bags, and has the UPC number UPC 6-91730-17101-8 with lot number N128. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture took a sample of the product and tested it for Salmonella; it tested positive.

The firm conducted its own test and it was negative. But, Salmonella may not be evenly distributed throughout the cat food, which is typical, which explains the discrepancy.

A product like this could sicken people who handle it, and pets who eat it, who can then transmit the pathogen to people, either through touching the animal or handling its feces. Symtpoms of a Salmonella infection in people include a fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea that may be bloody. Pets with Salmonella can have no symptoms but be carriers, or may have decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain. Some pets do become ill with fever, vomiting, and bloody diarrhea.

If you purchased this Quest Beef Cat Food, do not feed it to your pets. Throw it away in a sealed package so other animals can’t access it, or take it back to the place of purchase for a refund. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling this product.┬áThe recall notice also states that consumers should follow the safe handling tips published on the package.
