The recall was issued Dec. 8, and includes the following:

  • Natural Selections Duck Meals for Dogs, Lot #40487
  • Natural Selections Chicken Meals for Dogs, Lot #40727

In addition to the first-hand risk of animals directly consuming salmonella bacteria in contaminated dog food, there is also a risk that humans may contract the illness by handling tainted pet products, especially if they have not washed their hands after having contact with the products or exposed surfaces.

Otherwise healthy people with salmonella infection typically have the following symptoms:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea or bloody diarrhea
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Fever

Pets with salmonella may present with symptoms including:

  • Lethargy
  • Diarrhea or bloody diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Vomiting
  • Decreased appetite
  • Abdominal pain

Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers of salmonella and infect other animals or humans. If your pet developed any of these symptoms after eating Darwin’s Natural Selections dog food, you should contact your veterinarian immediately.

Darwin’s is not aware of any reports of illness associated with feeding or handling the affected product, but asks customers and retailers to discontinue use immediately as a precaution.
