Why was it recalled?
Salmonella bacteria can cause an infection in cats when consumed. Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, fever, excess salivation, and decreased appetite.
It can also cause similar symptoms in humans if they handle contaminated products, so be sure to wash your hands after handling your cat’s food. Some cats may not show symptoms but can still spread the bacteria to other household pets and humans.
Where was the product sold?
The impacted products were sold from the company’s retail stores in Minneapolis, Saint Paul and Woodbury, Minnesota. No other Woody’s Pet Food Deli products are part of this recall.
