Cat food sold nationwide recalled over potential risks to pets and humans

U.S. & World

(CNN/WFLA) – A company is issuing a nationwide recall of some of its cat food over fears it may be contaminated with salmonella.

According to the FDA, the Utah-based company Go Raw is recalling its “quest” brand 2-pound frozen bags of beef cat food.

The recall was put into place after the Minnesota Department of Agriculture found a sample tested positive for salmonella.

Federal health officials say salmonella can not only affect animals that eat the products, but it can also be a risk to humans who handle it.

Symptoms of salmonella poisoning include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps that occur about 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria.
