Go Raw, LLC, of Utah has recalled 2-pound frozen bags of “Quest Beef Cat Food” due to a risk of Salmonella contamination.
The cat food was distributed nationwide through retail stores. The recalled products can be identified by Lot N128 and UPC 6-91730-17101-8.
No illnesses have been reported. However, Salmonella can cause illnesses in cats. There is also a risk to humans who handle contaminated pet food, especially if they do not wash their hands after handling the food, bowls, or other surfaces that were exposed.
This recall was issued after a sample of the cat food tested positive for Salmonella, according to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.
Pets with Salmonella infections may have no symptoms, but transmit the infection to other animals and people. Infected pets with symptoms may suffer from lethargy, diarrhea, fever, and vomiting.
Healthy people who are infected with Salmonella can develop symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever. In rare cases, Salmonella causes more serious complications.
