Breeder’s Choice Pet Foods of Irwindale, Calif., has recalled a small amount of AvoDerm Natural Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Adult Dog Formula in 26-pound bags, but a company spokesman said none of the food reached pet owners.
The recall was issued because of possible Salmonella contamination, the company reported in a statement on its website.
Virtually all the recalled product was seized at distribution centers or on trucks, spokesman Mark Newberg said today. A “couple of cases” may have been delivered to a store but were returned before any could be sold, he added.
The possible contamination was discovered during quality testing and was identified in a “singular, isolated manufacturing batch,” the company reported.
The bagged food has “best by” dates of 28 Aug 2013, 29 Aug 2013 and 30 Aug 2013. The product code is 1000065074 and the UPC code is 0 5290702043 8.
Consumers or retailers may call AvoDerm consumer service at 866-500-6286 for more information.
