The FDA cautioned pet owners not to feed their pets two lots of Darwin’s Natural Pet Products raw cat food after samples from these lots tested positive for Salmonella. These foods have been associated with cases of illness in three kittens in a single household. The recalled products are Natural Pet Products Natural Selections Antibiotic & Grain Free Chicken Recipe for Cats and Natural Pet Products Natural Selections Antibiotic & Grain Free Turkey Recipe for Cats. The products are sold in white and clear plastic packages with blue and green labeling. Each pack weighs two pounds and consists of four separate units. The lot codes are on the front lower left unit of the package. These products are manufactured by Arrow Reliance Inc., doing business as Darwin’s Natural Pet Products, and are sold online direct to consumers. Whole genome sequencing of the Salmonella in the two products revealed that the turkey product contained Salmonella Typhimurium, while the chicken product contained Salmonella Typhimurium and Kentucky. The products are sold and stored frozen, and the FDA is concerned that people may still have them in their possession and feed them to their pets. The FDA recommended that Arrow Reliance Inc. voluntarily recall these products and notify the public, but the company has not done so. @ https://www.fda.gov/animal-veterinary/outbreaks-and-advisories/fda-cautions-pet-owners-not-feed-certain-lots-darwins-natural-pet-products-due-salmonella?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
