On April 9th, 2021, the J.M. Smucker Company Co. announced a voluntary recall on Meow Mix Original Dry Cat Food (30 lb bag) due to the possibility of Salmonella contamination.

The company hasn’t been informed of any pet illnesses, but it still decided to recall the product as an extra precaution.

You should be aware of this if you have purchased the mentioned product from Walmart stores in MO, IL, NM, WI, NE, OK, UT, and WY. Also, keep in mind that other Meow Mix products were not affected. 

Salmonellosis is a bacterial infection that affects both animals and humans. Some symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and decreased appetite. Although your cat may not appear sick, the bacteria could easily spread to other people and animals in the household. 

If you buy this product regularly, or if you remember buying it recently from one of the above-listed Walmart stores, see if the Retail UPC code matches the following description.

Have you got a potentially contaminated bag? Don’t stress about it. Instead, stop feeding it to your pets, dispose of the bag right away, and ask your veterinarian for suggestions. 

Even if your cat shows no symptoms of Salmonella infection, it doesn’t hurt to visit the vet for a quick check-up. It’s all a part of being a responsible pet owner. If you’d like to know what more you can do for your cat, refer to our Pawesome Guide on Cat Care for tips.

Speaking of dry food, although it is usually the most convenient way to provide cats with all the nutrients they need, some pickier cats might not like it or may get bored of it after a while. 

So, if you want to spice up your cat’s diet with some wet food, or if you’d like to switch to it completely, you can check out our Best Wet Cat Food reviews to help you make the best decision for your pet.
