Compared to other recalls, pet food recalls are relatively rare here at ConsumerBell, so when we saw this recall for rat, mouse, and hamster food, it caught our eye.
Kaytee Pet Products is recalling its Forti-Diet Pro Health Rat, Mouse, and Hamster food because it could be contaminated with Salmonella.
This is the second recall in a month for Kaytee. The company recalled bird food that had excessive levels of Vitamin D.
This recall, though, affects four different production codes of the Forti-Diet variety. Find recall specifics in our Marketplace.
Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is a 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.
this is the second recall announced this week for Salmonella. Diamond puppy dry dog food was added to its list of recalled products because of the bacteria, as well.
