According to Kaytee’s website, their parsley supplier was notified of possible Salmonella contamination from the parsley flakes that were utilized during production. Although, Kaytee did not have a positive Salmonella test finding, they feel that a recall is necessary to protect both pets and their owners.

It is important to remember that if your pet had contact with the recalled products, you are advised to watch for symptoms that may develop. Common symptoms associated with Salmonella poisoning include diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. If your pet experiences any of these symptoms, contact a medical professional for further assistance. Owners are also advised to watch for those same symptoms in themselves and family members who may have handled the pet’s food.

Consumers who purchased the affected products are urged to call Kaytee Customer Care at 1-800-KAYTEE-1 (1-800-529-8331). Be sure to have a copy or picture of the UPC Code, Best Before Date, and store receipt from the package ready to verify that the product is part of the recall to receive a Recall Return Response form.
