September 6, 2022 — In a private email to customers, Spot and Tango announced it is recalling four batches of its UnKibble Dog Food product line because samples tested positive for Salmonella bacteria.
The lot codes and SKU numbers for affected products listed below can be found on the bottom and back of each pouch.
No other Spot & Tango products or lot codes are impacted by this recall.
The following was reproduced from the company’s email recall announcement.
Salmonella can affect animals eating the product and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products.
Dogs with Salmonella infections will most likely not exhibit any symptoms, though in rare cases they may be lethargic and have diarrhea (which may be bloody), fever, and vomiting. Some dogs may have only decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain.
Infected but otherwise healthy dogs can be carriers and infect other animals or humans through the fecal-oral route.
If your dog has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.
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.
If you are exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product, please contact your healthcare provider.
What to Do?
If you have product matching the following description in your possession, you should stop feeding it to your dogs and dispose of it immediately.
