Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause illness in humans and animals. The product could therefore carry a potential risk, either through direct handling of the pet food, or indirectly from handling pet feeding bowls, utensils or contact with the faeces of animals. 

In humans, symptoms caused by Salmonella usually include fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps. 

Infected animals may not necessarily display signs of illness, but symptoms can include diarrhoea. 

If you have bought any of the affected products do not use them. Instead, return them to the store where you purchased the products for a full refund. Point of sale notices will also be displayed in the retail stores that sold these products.

When handling and serving raw pet food it is always advised to clean utensils and feeding bowls thoroughly after use. Pet owners should also wash their hands thoroughly after handling raw pet food, bowls, utensils or after contact with the faeces of animals. 

Raw pet food should be stored separately from any other food (especially ready to eat foods) and care should be taken when defrosting the frozen foods to avoid cross contamination.
