The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers that one lot of Aunt Jeni’s frozen raw pet food poses a Salmonella risk. This is the second time in six months that such an advisory has been issued for this brand of pet food.
This warning pertains to 5-pound bags of Aunt Jeni’s Home Made All-Natural Raw Turkey Dinner Dog Food. They are marked with the lot code 175331 and the” best by”NOV2020. Last month, the FDA collected a retail sample of this product and it tested positive for Salmonella Infantis. The FDA is issuing this warning because the company has not recalled the product and Salmonella in pet food poses a risk to pets who eat it and the humans who handle it.
Consumers who have purchased this product should not feed it to their pets, discard the item and thoroughly clean all surfaces it came into contact with.
Symptoms of a Salmonella infection in humans include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. Pets with Salmonella infections don’t always display symptoms but they include vomiting, diarrhea (which may be bloody), fever, loss of appetite and/or decreased activity level.
