Regional Recall of Pet Food by Wal-Mart

Wal-Mart is issuing a regional recall for some dog food because of concern about salmonella contamination. This recall is exclusive of the safety concerns of imported products from China. The Wal-Mart recall is separate from that matter:

“Only a single batch of 55-pound bags of Ol’ Roy Complete Nutrition dog food is being recalled. The dog food was produced at a plant in Manassas and distributed to 69 Wal-Mart stores in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Ohio. Forty of the stores are in Virginia.”

One thing to keep in mind is that the salmonella problem can impact humans who have handled the food. It does make one wonder how safe any of this mass manufactured pet food really is.
