Pro-Pet Vitamin Supplement Recall

Share

Dog Food Recall WarningUnited Pet Group of Cincinatti, Ohio has issued a voluntary recall of all unexpired lots of their Pro-Pet Adult Daily Vitamin Supplement tablets for Dogs due to the possibility of contamination with Salmonella bacteria.

The product was sold nationally at various retailers. The product comes in 100-count white plastic bottles with a light blue label, and UPC code 26851-01800. These products are being removed from retail stores and consumers should immediately stop feeding these supplements to their pets. The affected products are those with expiration dates on or before “06/13″. The expiration date can be found imprinted vertically on the right side of the product label.

Complete details regarding this recall are available within the actual FDA News Release dated June 22, 2010.

Product recalls involving Salmonella contamination are potentially serious matters… for both humans and pets. People who handle the affected tablets can easily become infected with the bacteria.

According to the FDA…

Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

So, take precautions… and be sure to tell everyone you know.

You can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.

    Can anyone recommend a very good and safe multivitamin for a dog over age 11 ? I am searching like crazy and can’t seem to find one that doesn’t have extra fillers that aren’t needed. I also want one in which all theĀ ingredientsĀ are made in the USA.

    I had given my dog almost a whole bottle before finding out they had been recalled. She had been throwing up some and had some diarrhea, but got really bad over the weekend. The vet diagnosed her with Hepatitus, which can be caused by Salmonella poisoning in dogs. She has been in the hospital since Monday. I have had her for 12 yrs and I am absolutely furious. When I called the company, the rep was nonchallent about it. I am so mad! Think I will sue the pants off of them!

    Hi Crystal… I wish I could help you more but the best way to get an answer to your question would be to call ProPet at 800-664-7387. Hope this helps.

    We have a three year old English Mastiff. I purchased these tablets that are included in the recall. I have given her maybe ten or more of these tablets, thank goodness I have been busy remodeling our house and haven’t remembered her or my vitamins regularly. She doesn’t seem sick other than she digs at her skin all the time. I don’t think this is a sign of salmonella. But, what do I need to do to make sure she is safe? We also have a male cat in the house he’s been acting crazy. like attacking me for no reason and right before wanting to love all over me. I think it’s because we need to get him neatured but it wouldn’t be salmonella from her would it? It said the animal taking it though seeming healthy can be a carrier.

    My Westie just died of acute renal failure with blood values skyrocketing that 3 vets could not explain after treatment. He consumed many of the Pet Pro Senior and Adult Dog Vitamins, as these were the only things he would eat. I thought I was providing him added nutrition. My vet will be investigating with the company, as he too is concerned that this is what cause the swift illness and resulting death of our baby.

    My dog has consumed 90 of the 100 of these vitamins with the correct code and an expiration listed as 12/12.
