Why Was The Food Recalled?

Sunshine Mills, Inc. proceeded with the recall due to potential salmonella contamination found during a routine check. Salmonella poisoning can be spread to other animals and humans and can cause acute illness in both.

Where Was The Food Sold?

The products were sold in multiple states. Please refer to the above information to find out if you live in one of the affected states.

What Do I Do With The Food? Should I Be Worried About Myself or My Dog?

If your pet has been eating the recalled Sunshine Mills Inc. products, discontinue use immediately. Due to potential adverse reactions in dogs of any size, if you have been feeding your pet the potentially contaminated product, contact your veterinarian to ensure they know the situation. Then return the food to the original purchase location for a full refund.

What Do I Need To Know About Salmonella Poisoning?

Salmonella poisoning in dogs may come with various symptoms such as lethargy with fever, diarrhea occasionally accompanied by blood, and vomiting. Other less noticeable side effects can include appetite loss, abdominal pain, and fever.

If your animal has become infected but appears to be otherwise healthy, they can still be carriers of Salmonella. That means they can potentially infect other animals and humans they are around. If you know your pet has consumed the recalled product or is currently experiencing any of these symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately.
