With pet food recalls, it's always a concern that humans can be affected as well. In cats, salmonella symptoms can include vomiting and diarrhea, but will more likely include decreased appetite, fever, and excessive salivation. In humans,can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever. Cats can also infect their owners with salmonella even if they are not actively showing symptoms.
To find out if the Meow Mix in your home is part of the recall, check for UPC codes of 2927452099 and best by dates of September 14 and September 15 of 2022. As is true with all recalls, if you have any of the products in your possession, dispose of them immediately and be sure to wash your hands after handling the packaging to be safe. If your cat consumed the food or is experiencing symptoms, contact a vet immediately.

Despite growing up with a veterinarian for a mother, I have never been much of an animal person. Unfortunately, Mom’s also a neat freak who preferred to leave the hairballs and drool at work. My younger brother and I finally wore her down and we adopted a poodle in my teen years, but by this time I was more preoccupied with siphoning illicit booze from my parents’ liquor cabinet than learning how to care for a new pet. And certainly I’ve never been a cat person, a descriptor I’d always regarded with equal parts disdain and horror.
