Mars Petcare has announced in tandem with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that it is recalling its ‘Red Flannel Adult Formula‘ dry dog food and its ‘Krasdale Gravy’ dry dog food. Mars Petcare has issued this recall because of a potential for the dog food to be contaminated with Salmonella.
The FDA and Mars Petcare are under taking the recall as a precautionary measure after FDA investigators found Salmonella in a sample of both of these kinds of dog foods. The company chose to take this action to avoid another fracas similar to recent pet food scandals.
Red Flannel is sold in 50 lb. bags, and Krasdale Gravy is sold in 5 lb. bags. Make certain to not feed any to your dogs, as there is always a risk of cross-contamination on salmonella to children and the immunocompromised.
