ATLANTA (WRCB) -- A potential salmonella contamination of an all-natural pet food has prompted a product recall.
Breeder's Choice Pet Foods is recalling its AvoDerm Natural Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Adult Dog Formula with the "Best Before" dates of 28 Aug 2013, 29 Aug 2013, 30 Aug 2013.
The recalled dog food was distributed to retailers in California, Georgia, Illinois, Nevada, Virginia and Washington.
People who have the potentially contaminated dog food should discard it immediately and stop handling it as it poses a risk to humans and other animals as well.
In addition to direct transmission to dogs, salmonella can be passed from animals to humans. Common symptoms of salmonella in dogs include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, lethargy, fever and abdominal discomfort.
If your pet experiences any of the symptoms, seek veterinary assistance.
