Consumers exhibiting these symptoms after having contact with these products should contact their physician or healthcare provider.
Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infection but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product(s) and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

Thank you! I try to stay away from Kaytee foods as I find they have way to many recalls and are a low quality choice in my opinion.

Kennedy check the lot # before you toss it.. If Ice does show any signs of illness then the vet has a head start if you know your bag was part of the recall. There were no reported illness due to the product so try not to worry to much.. Just keep a good eye on her!

There was also a recall on those fruit pellets, too, right? It's a different brand, for some
reason I can't remember the name.

There wer Zurpreem recalls, Kaytee handrearing formula got recalled, now these. There was another one aswell last year that I can't recall.

Another reason why I don't feed things like that unless I trust the brand. Though these days I tend to make my own seed treats lol.
