The company has recalled 35 lots of 23 product varieties sold frozen in 20-pound and 40-pound cases.
The recalled products pose a serious threat to pet and human health, and should be thrown away in a secure container where other animals, including wildlife, cannot access it, the FDA said.
The products were sold online and by phone directly to consumers in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.
People with symptoms of salmonella or listeria infection should consult a health care provider, and owners of pets with symptoms of salmonella or listeria infection should consult a veterinarian, the FDA advised.
If you've had these products in your home, you should clean fridges/freezers where they were stored and clean and disinfect all bowls, utensils, food prep surfaces, pet bedding, toys, floors, and any other surfaces that may have come into contact with the food or your pet.
Clean up your pet's feces in yards or parks where people or other animals could be exposed. Thoroughly wash your hands after handling the recalled pet food or cleaning up potentially contaminated items and surfaces.
