Some of the 2021 trends have been fun. Aharon? Not much. After a seemingly endless series of salmonella-induced recalls this year that have already eaten chickpeas, sesame oil, ground turkey and — most notably — pet food off the shelves, we’re once again faced with potentially endangering cats and humans.
JM Smucker recently issued a voluntary recall of two pieces of Meow Mix cat food out of concern that it might be contaminated with salmonella bacteria, the company announced in a press release. The affected products were sold at Walmart in at least eight states: Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Redemption applies exclusively to 30-pound bags of Meow Mix’s Original Choice dry cat food with cut codes that read 1081804 or 1082804. The batch symbol can be found on the back of the bag towards the bottom. Affected products will also have use-by-read dates 14/9/2022 or 15/9/2022.
If you find that you have purchased a potentially contaminated product, you should dispose of it immediately. salmonella bacteria It can contaminate both cats and humansTherefore, it is important to clean any surfaces – including your hands – that you may have come into contact with.
