If you have a pet, check the food label. A leading pet food producer just recalled four dog foods for possible Salmonella contamination.
Sunshine Mills, Inc. issued the advisory after the Minnesota Department of Agriculture found Salmonella in 5-pound Sprout Sporting Dog Food.
Following states recalled the four products:
1. FRM Gold Select High Performance Dog Food (50-pound containers): Florida and Georgia
2. Intimidator Chicken & Rice Formula Dog Food 30/20 (16-pound and 40-pound containers): Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, and Texas
3. Sportsman's Pride Sportsman's Pride Professional Formula 30/20 Dog Food (40-pound containers): Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia
4. Sprout Sporting Dog Food (5-pound and 40-pound containers): Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin
It's important to know that humans could also be at risk from handling any contaminated dog food. Thankfully, no injuries or illnesses have been reported.
Salmonella can damage animals that eat contaminated food and humans who handle them without washing their hands.
Sunshine Mills asked retailers to take impacted items off shelves. Return the food for a refund.
