The Best By Date is found on the middle top of the back of each bag. This expanded voluntary recall is being issued due to some of the product lots testing positive for Salmonella through random and targeted sampling of finished product, including by the firm and the South Carolina Department of Agriculture.

As of November 1, 2023, seven people reported Salmonella infections. 

Retailers and distributors should immediately pull all product from their inventory and shelves and destroy product.  Do not sell or donate the recalled products.

Do not feed the recalled product to pets or any other animals.  Destroy the food in a way that children, pets, and wildlife cannot access.  Wash and sanitize pet food bowls, cups, and storage containers.  Always ensure that you wash and sanitize your hands after handling recalled food or any utensils that come in contact with recalled food.

Contact Mid America Pet Food Consumer Affairs at 1-888-428-7544 from 8 AM to 11 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST) seven days a week for additional information. 

This is a voluntary recall being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
