On Friday, Nestle Purina PetCare Co. said that it is voluntarily recalling bags of Purina ONE beyOnd adult dog food because of a salmonella risk.
The recall affects bags of only one flavor of Purina ONE beyOnd — Our White Meat Chicken & Whole Barley Recipe — with the following description:
- Size: 3.5 pounds
- Best-by date: OCT 2014
- Production code: 31071083
- UPC code: 17800 12679
According to the company, one bag from one production run was found to be contaminated with salmonella.
No other Purina products are affected by the recall, and the company says that no salmonella-related illness has been reported to date in association with this product.
According to the FDA, “Pets with salmonella infections may exhibit decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.”
