IMPORTANT PET FOOD RECALL!
This just in from Ayuda Perros Y Gatos:
IMPORTANT NEWS: THIS RECALL INCLUDES THE KIRKLAND BRAND SOLD BY PRICEMART! Check the dates on the bags! "Batches that are affected were manufactured between December 9, 2011 and April 7, 2012, but do not include canned food or treats."
Diamond Pet Foods, a US company, expanded its recall of 3 of its brands of dry dog food after Salmonella Infantis was found at its plant. Salmonella Infantis is believed to have been the cause of 14 cases of Salmonella poisoning in nine states in people who handled the contaminated pet food or were in contact with dogs, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control.
To find out if your pet food is affected, check the production code. If the code on your pet food “has a “2″ or “3″ in the 9th position AND an “X” in the 10th or 11th position and your best-before date is between December 9, 2012 and April 7, 2013, your product is affected by the recall. If the product you have does not include a “2″ or “3″ in the 9th position AND an “X” in the 10th or 11th position and your best-before date is not between December 9, 2012 and April 7, 2013, your product is not affected."
