Midwestern Pet Foods, the same company that issued a big recall in January due to aflatoxin, has recalled products from 10 dog and cat food brands due to the potential for salmonella contamination. The brands involved include CanineX, Earthborn Holistic, Venture, Unrefined, Sportmix Wholesomes, Pro Pac, Pro Pac Ultimates, Sportstrail, Sportmix, and Meridian. The full list of recalled bags is very long.
The recall is specifically for food produced at the company’s Monmouth, Illinois facility. Though, those products were distributed nationwide and to online retailers. You’re looking for an “M” in the date code on the bag that designates it as having been produced at the facility where salmonella was detected, per the company’s recall. The lot code information is printed on the back of the bag and looks like this: “EXP AUG/02/22/M1/L#.
