Tre mesi dopo il richiamo delle aflatossine, Midwestern Pet Foods ricorda i cibi per cani e gatti per il rischio di salmonella

Three months after Midwestern Pet Foods recalled some of its products because of a risk of aflatoxin poisoning, l'azienda sta ritirando dagli scaffali dozzine di altri alimenti per animali domestici. The concern this time is salmonella.

Midwestern Pet Foods has issued a voluntary recall of certain dog and cat food brands manufactured at the company’s Monmouth, Illinois, facility because they may be contaminated with salmonella, according to a company announcement posted on the FDA website.
Il affected brands, which are sold nationwide, include CanineX, Earthborn Holistic, Meridian, Pro Pac, Pro Pac Ultimates, Sportmix, Sportmix Wholesomes, Sportstrial, Unrefined and Venture.
      The Indiana-based company discovered the potential for contamination after routine sampling. You can tell if your product needs to be thrown out by looking at the expiration date, la società ha detto.
        The possibly contaminated products have an “M” in the date code, such as this example: “EXP AUG/02/22/M1/L#.
          Midwestern Pet Foods is urging retailers and distributors to pull recalled lots from their inventory and shelves and, se possibile, contact customers that purchased the products.
          Salmonella can make pets lethargic and have vomiting, diarrhea and fever, secondo a statement from the company. Pets may also have decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain.
          Humans handling contaminated products can get infected too, which can lead to nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Salmonella can also rarely cause arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, dolore muscolare, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms.
          The FDA recommends people consult their healthcare provider if they believe they may be infected with salmonella. As of Saturday, there were no reports of any illness related to this recall.
            You can report suspected illness to the FDA by calling a Consumer Complaint Coordinator or completing an electronic form.
            L'aflatossina è prodotta dalla muffa Aspergillus flavus, ha detto la FDA. Può crescere sui cereali usati come ingredienti nel cibo per animali domestici, e quando vengono consumati alti livelli di aflatossina, può causare malattie o morte negli animali domestici.
