Pro-Pet LLC announced Feb. 6 that it is recalling three brands of dry cat and dog food due to possible bacterial contamination.

The Ohio-based company said testing showed that batches of Hubbard Life, Joy Combo and QC Plus made during a two-day period on a single production line “may have the potential for Salmonella contamination," which can sicken both animals and people.

The recalled products, including best-by dates, lot codes and UPC numbers, are:

  • 40 lb QC Plus Adult Dog Food: 05 07 14, 097 13 SM L2 2A, 2351780104
  • 40 lb QC Plus Adult Dog Food: 05 07 14, 097 13 SM L2 1A, 2351780104

The affected food was sold to consumers in 29 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Consumers are urged to stop using the recalled food and call Pro-Pet at 1-888-765-4190 “for disposition," according to a company news release. Pro-Pet did not immediately respond to e-mails and a phone message seeking more details about the recall.

The announcement came less than two weeks after Minnesota-based PMI Nutrition recalled 1,400 bags of Red Flannel cat food due to similar contamination concerns. A PMI spokeswoman said the Red Flannel food was made by Pro-Pet.

Both pet food situations are under investigation, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said.
