|FRESHPET® SELECT FRESH FROM THE KITCHEN HOME COOKED RECIPE||627975011673||10/29/22||10/29/22 L3|
Freshpet had originally designated this single lot for destruction, but a small portion of the lot was inadvertently shipped to retailers in limited geographic markets including limited Walmart stores in Alabama and Georgia, and limited Target stores and other select retailers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, Vermont, and West Virginia. To date, Freshpet has received no reports of illness, injury, or adverse reaction. No other Freshpet products or lot codes are impacted by this recall.
Salmonella can affect animals eating the product and there is risk to humans, notably children, the elderly, and the immunocompromised, when handling contaminated products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or surfaces exposed to these products.
Pet parents who have questions or would like to report adverse reactions should call 1.800.285.0563 Mon. through Fri., 9 am–9 pm (EDT) and Sat. through Sun. 9 am–1 pm (EDT) or visit https://freshpet.co/JUNE22External Link Disclaimer.
