Ohio-based J.M. Smucker Co. said in a press release Friday that two lots of Meow Mix Original Choice Dry Cat Food have been voluntarily recalled due to the possibility of salmonella contamination. 

The recalls are for 30-pound bags that were distributed to eight states. If the bag has the retail UPC code 2927452099, lot codes 1082804 or 1081804, and have 9/14/2022 or 9/15/2022 as the “Best If Used By” date, the company said to stop feeding the cat the food immediately and return it to the store it was purchased from. 

The bulk lots were only distributed to a few Walmart stores in Illinois, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

J.M. Smucker said it had "received no reports of pet illness or adverse reaction and has issued this recall out of an abundance of caution."

“Symptoms of Salmonella infection in cats may include vomiting or diarrhea. Some cats may not develop diarrhea, but may have a decreased appetite, fever, and excessive salivation. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian. Some cats may not appear sick but can spread infection to other animals and humans in the household,” the press release stated. 

For more information about the recall, consumers can call 1-888-569-6728 or visit the website www.meowmix.com/contact-us.

Meow Mix launched in 1974 and operates out of Decatur, Alabama.
