Mars Petcare is recalling the 50-pound variety of its Red Flannel-brand Large Breed Adult Formula Dry Dog Food due to salmonella risk. The Red Flannel dog food recall specifically covers only Pennsylvania. The salmonella risk applies to cats, dog as well as to humans.

A vague warning regarding salmonella was issued last week without the mention of Red Flannel dog food. We covered the dog and cat food salmonella warning on August 14th.

According to Mars Petcare, only three bags of Red Flannel dog food had been sold in Reedsville, PA and Richlandtown, PA. Only one bag has yet to be returned.

Full press release is below.

(Related News: Krasdale Gravy brand dog food was also recalled due to salmonella risk.)

BREAKING NEWS: Melamine Found In Wal-Mart Bestros Chicken Jerky Strips For Dogs
August 22nd, 2007 in News for Cats, Dogs & Owners, Products & Services for Cats & Dogs, National Dog, Cat & Pet Info, Dogs, Pet Food Recalls & Safety
The Associated Press is reporting that tests of two Chinese brands of dog food treats sold at Wal-Mart stores found traces of melamine.

Wal-Mart pulled two China-made dog treats from their shelves: Chicken Jerky Strips from Import-Pingyang Pet Product Co. and Chicken Jerky from Bestros Trading on July 26 due to customer?s complaints about pets becoming ill from eating the treats.

Wal-Mart spokeswoman Deisha Galberth said 17 sets of tests done on the products found melamine.

?There were very small amounts of melamine found,? Galberth said. ?The amounts were so small the laboratory recommended more testing.?

Galberth added that she couldn?t say at this point if the amount of melamine found would be enough to sicken or kill a pet that ate the tainted products.

She further added that Wal-Mart would expand its testing of the chicken jerky strips to see if tests find melamine in the product.

As of now, no formal recall has been issued.

Select Krasdale Gravy Dry Dog Food 5lb Bags Voluntarily Recalled in Five States
Contact:
Renee Kopkowski
(908) 850-7935
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- FRANKLIN, Tenn. -- August 21, 2007 -- Mars Petcare US, Inc. today announces a voluntary recall of select five pound bags of Krasdale Gravy dry dog food sold in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. The pet food is being recalled because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, which can cause serious infections in dogs and cats, and, if there is cross contamination, in people, especially children, the aged, and people with compromised immune systems.
The recalled product should not be sold or fed to pets. Pet owners should dispose of product in a safe manner (example, a securely covered trash receptacle) and return the empty bag to the store where purchased for a full refund.
Salmonella can potentially be transferred to people handling this pet food, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the product or any surfaces exposed to the product. Healthy people potentially infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.
Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Well animals can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit regarding recalled Diamond Pet Food products. A settlement fund will be established and pay consumers who purchased recalled Diamond Pet Food products, and compensate dog owners whose dogs were injured as a result of eating recalled Diamond Pet Food products. See: Diamond Pet Food Settlement Website

(Note: The 2005 recall is unrelated to the contamination problem that prompted recalls of more than 100 pet-food brands in early 2006.)
