Albright's Raw Dog Food has recalled Chicken Recipe for Dogs citing potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

The recall involves 67 cases of Chicken Recipe for Dogs, packaged in 2 lbs chubs/rolls. Each chub/roll is printed with "Lot number C000185, Best By 19 May 2021."

The product was sold frozen, and was distributed from July 8 to August 27 in 10 states, through retail stores, mail order, and direct delivery.

The problem was confined to this batch, of which the company has ceased the distribution.

The recall was initiated after a test conducted by the Food and Drug Administration revealed the problem bacteria.

Salmonella are a group of bacteria that can cause gastrointestinal illness and fever called salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses.

Symptoms of Salmonella infection include diarrhea, abdominal pain and fever. In some people, the illness may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized.

Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products. Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting.

The Fort Wayne, Indiana-based company received report of one animal illness, while no human illnesses have been reported to date.

Albright's Raw Dog Food cites the possibility that retailers and end users may still have the product in their freezers due to the frozen condition of the product.

Consumers are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

In similar incidents involving Salmonella risks, natural grocery retailer Vitamin Cottage Natural Food Markets Inc. in early November called back Natural Grocers Brand 4-ounce Organic Whole Elderberries. Meijer, a privately-owned retailer, in October recalled whole cantaloupe and select cut cantaloupe fruit trays and bowls.
