A company in Utah remembers two kilos of frozen cat food bags sold across the country for fear it may be contaminated with salmonella.
"Salmonella can affect animals that eat the products, and people are at risk of handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not washed their hands thoroughly after contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products," said US Food and Drug Administration this week.
The goods affected were distributed nationwide through stores and are identified by UPC 6-91730-17101-8, Lot N128. No illnesses have been reported.
A sample collected tested positive for salmonella, requesting the recall.
"The company was notified by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture when the sample was collected and tested positive for salmonella. The company conducted its own test which resulted in a negative result, "the federal agency said.
Symptoms of pet salmonella infections include lethargy, diarrhea, fever, vomiting, decreased appetite and abdominal pain. Pets can infect other animals or humans.  The recall is by Go Raw, LLC, of Cottonwood Utah.
