Salmonella Concern Prompts Dog Food Recall
Federal regulators have announced the recall of thousands of pounds of dog food because it may be contaminated with salmonella.
The dog food affected was sold by OC Raw Dog of California in Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Missouri and Colorado.
According to the Food and Drug Administration, the recall involves the company's Turkey and Produce Raw Frozen Canine Formulation.
The recall was prompted by results of a routine sampling program in Nebraska. Officials say testing of a sample revealed a presumptive positive indication for the presence of salmonella.
The recall is limited to the one variety of dog food in 6-and-a-half-pound Doggie Dozen Patties and five-pound Bulk Bags with a use-by date of October 8.
The company says it has stopped the production and distribution of the product while an investigation is underway to determine what caused the problem.
