Victor Beef Meal & Rice Dog Food Recalled For Salmonella

Dogs can contract Salmonella infections from contaminated food. They excrete the pathogen in their feces, which can then get on their coats and onto anything in the environment. Humans can get sick if they touch contaminated pet food and then touch their mouths or eat without washing their hands. They can also pick up the pathogen by petting a sick dog or touching anything in that animal’s environment.

Pets with Salmonella infections may not show any symptoms but they can be carriers. Some pets may be lethargic and have bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. And some may only have fever, abdominal pain, and decreased appetite.

The recalled product was sold across the United States. It is Victor Super Premium Dog Food, Select Beef Meal & Brown Rice Formula. The package size/lot number/best by date pairs are: 5 pound bags with lot number 1000016890 and best by date 6/12/2024; 15 pound bags with lot number 1000016891 and best by date 6/12/2024; and 40 pound bags with lot number 1000016892 and best by date 6/12/2024. The lot number information is printed on the back of the bag.

No other products are included this recall. This company says that this recall is separate from and unrelated to the Mid America Pet Food recall for Salmonella that was issued on September 3, 2023.
