Click here for a current list of all the dry dog food products that have been recalled due to the contaminated South Carolina manufacturing facility.
Out of “an abundance of caution,” Solid Gold Health Products for Pets announced today it is voluntarily recalling two batches of its dog food manufactured in the South Carolina plant in which traces of Salmonella were found.
The recalled products, Solid Gold WolfKing Large Breed Adult Food and Solid Gold WolfCub Large Breed Puppy Food, were distributed in the United States and Canada between January and May 2012.
Fourteen people in four states have become ill after handling Diamond Pet Foods products manufactured in the same plant. Since April, Diamond has recalled nine brands of its dog food. Over the past few days, Natural Balance, Wellness, Canidae and Apex have voluntarily recalled dog food that was manufactured in the plant.
Salmonella can affect both animals and people who don’t wash their hands after handling contaminated pet products. While severe Salmonella infections are rare in adult dogs with healthy immune systems, they can be lethal to puppies whose immune systems are not fully developed, and older dogs with weakened immune systems.
All of the recalled Solid Gold products have Best Before dates of December 30, 2012.
