Cat Food Recall

Mars Petcare US is issuing a voluntary recall of a limited number of bags of Special Kitty Gourmet cat food sold in Wal-Mart due to potential Salmonella poisoning.

The affected states are:Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Vermont, and West Virginia.

Here's the whole press release.

While the Menu Foods case probably leaps to mind, keep in mind here that Salmonella (although still dangerous of course) is a far cry from the contaminants in the Chinese-manufactured products. Hopefully, this recall comes in time to keep any animals from getting sick or dying.
