WASHINGTON, D.C. — Midwestern Pet Foods, Inc. on March 26 voluntarily recalled certain lots of 140 different pet food products, all produced at its facility in Monmouth, Ill., due to potential Salmonella contamination.
Recalled dog and cat foods include the company’s CanineX, Earthborn Holistic, Venture, Unrefined, Sportmix Wholesomes, Pro Pac, Pro Pac Ultimates, Sportstrail, Sportmix and Meridian brands. These products were distributed online and through brick-and-mortar retail across the United States.
Products included in the recall have a facility identifier, “M,” located at the end of each product’s date code.
A routine sampling program identified the possibility of these products being contaminated with Salmonella. All other Midwestern Pet Foods brands are unaffected by this recall, stated the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The pet food company is working with the FDA to conduct the recall.
