The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is reporting that Mid America Pet Food, Mount Pleasant, Texas, is voluntarily recalling one lot of Victor Super Premium Dog Food, Hi-Pro Plus produced at its Mount Pleasant, Texas production facility because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products.
The affected product was only sold in 5-pound bags. No human or pet illnesses have been reported to date.
Products were distributed to various distributors and retailers in the United States. The affected product consists of 644 cases sold in 5-pound bags with lot code 1000016385 with Best By Date 4/30/2024. Lot code information is found on the back of the bag. No other products are included in this recall.
This voluntary recall is being issued due to a single sample of Victor Super Premium Dog Food that tested positive for Salmonella in a random sample test conducted by the South Carolina Department of Agriculture.
Retailers and distributors should immediately pull the recalled lot from their inventory and shelves. Do not sell or donate the recalled products.
