Reuters reported that this Tuesday, the FDA warned cat owners against buying Wild Kitty cat food, which is a frozen raw food. This is because salmonella was found in certain batches of the cat food while the FDA was doing a routine analysis on the food.
The FDA says the infected batches were Wild Kitty Chicken & Clam food (3 other flavors are also made). The agency warned pet owners not to buy any more of the food, and safely dispose of whatever they may have.
Besides the fact that the contaminated food is harmful to the cats, humans who come in contact with the pet food are also at risk for salmonella poisoning, along with those who come in close contact with infected animals.
[Wild Kitty] advertises itself as a raw food that does not include any artificial
flavorings or preservatives and is sold in frozen, single-serving and 1 pound
The people with the highest susceptibility to salmonella poisoning are the ill, the elderly, people with weak immune systems, and young children.
