FDA Recalling Pet Food Brands from Common Facility


A wide range of pet food brands have been recalled as a result of Salmonella contamination.  Products were manufactured by Mid-Western Pet Foods located in Monmouth, IL. and were marketed and distributed nationwide including through on-line retailers. Brands implicated include K9 X, Earthborn Holistic, Venture, Sport Mix, Holsens and Meridian among others.


The contamination was detected on routine sampling.


The presence of Salmonella in pet food represents a hazard to both animals and human contacts since cats and dogs that are infected become asymptomatic sporadic shedders of the pathogen potentially contaminating a household and representing a specific danger to children.
