Food manufacturer The J.M. Smucker Co. issued a limited, voluntary recall for two lots of Meow Mix Original Choice dry cat food because the products may be contaminated with Salmonella, the company said in an announcement posted to the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) website this week.

The impacted lots of 30-lb bags were sold at certain Walmart stores in Missouri, Illinois, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. J.M. Smucker has not received any reports of adverse reactions or illnesses in pets linked to the products. No other Meow Mix products are involved in the recall.

Cat food that is contaminated with Salmonella can impact felines that consume it, as well as humans that handle it. Pet owners whose cats have consumed the recalled products and are exhibiting signs of Salmonella infection like diarrhea, fever, or excessive salivation are urged to contact their veterinarian.

Those in possession of the recalled products are urged to dispose of them immediately.

Last July, J.M. Smucker announced a voluntary recall for one lot of its Natural Balance brand Ultra Premium Chicken & Liver Pate Formula canned cat food because the products were posssibly contaminated with elevated levels of choline chloride. This February, the company sold the Natural Balance brand to Nexus Capital Management LP for $50 million.
