Hartz Recalls Limited Amount of Betta Fish Food

Posted: June 18, 2013, 4:35 p.m. EDT

More than 8,100 plastic containers of Wardley Betta Fish Food have been voluntarily recalled because of potential salmonella contamination, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration reported.

The recalled food is from a single lot of 1.2-ounce containers shipped nationwide from May 13 to June 4, 2013.

The manufacturer, Hartz Mountain Corp. of Secaucus, N.J., did not receive any reports of illness in animals or humans who came in contact with the product, the FDA stated June 12. The company is investigating the source of the problem, which was discovered during routine sample testing.

Hartz Mountain Corp. is cooperating with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in the voluntary recall of some Wardley Betta Fish Food.
Fish owners who bought food bearing lot code PP06331, shown on the bottom of the container, are being asked to discontinue use of the product and discard it. The UPC number is 0-43324-01648.

The food was packaged at a Hartz plant in Pleasant Plain, Ohio.

More information and reimbursement details are available by calling Hartz Consumer Affairs at 800-275-1414.

Salmonella is a bacterial organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in people, particularly young children, frail or elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems, the FDA noted. Salmonella also may sicken animals that eat a contaminated product.
