Goldenfeast Issues Limited Recall of 8 Bird Foods

Posted: Aug. 28, 2013, 12:40 p.m. EDT


Eight varieties of Goldenfeast exotic bird food have been voluntarily recalled because of potential salmonella contamination linked to parsley flakes, the Phoenixville, Pa., company reported Monday.

The parsley ingredient was supplied to Goldenfeast Inc. by Specialty Commodities Inc., which in February began a voluntary recall of flakes distributed to a number of pet food manufacturers.

No human or pet illnesses have been reported in connection with the parsley flakes, Goldenfeast reported. Symptoms of salmonella poisoning in animals include lethargy, diarrhea, fever and vomiting. People who handle contaminated pet products may show similar symptoms.
