Nationwide Recall Issued For Dog Food Due To Possible Salmonella Contamination
On August 24, 2020 Sunshine Mills, Inc. issued a voluntary recall of Nature’s Menu® Super Premium Dog Food with a Blend of Real Chicken & Quail because of the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is a risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products.
Salmonella was the cause of multiple recalls last year.
