8 months ago source cdc.gov

Outbreak

United States

CDC, public health and regulatory officials in several states, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Center for Veterinary Medicine (FDA CVM) are investigating a Salmonella Kiambu multistate outbreak linked to Dry Dog Food. As of November 1, 2023, 7 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella have been reported from seven states (AL, CA, FL, HI, KY, MN, and OK). One person was hospitalized and no deaths have been reported. Illnesses started on dates ranging from January 14, 2023, to August 19, 2023.

People in this outbreak got sick from touching recalled dog food, touching things like dog bowls that contained the dog food, or touching the poop or saliva of dogs that were fed the dog food. Most of the sick people in this outbreak are infants. Epidemiologic and laboratory data show that a specific lot of Victor brand Hi-Pro Plus dry dog food is contaminated with Salmonella and has made people sick. The manufacturer, Mid America Pet Food, has recalled this and all other brands of pet food they make. Investigators are working to identify any additional products that might be contaminated.

On September 3, one lot of Victor brand Hi-Pro Plus dog food was recalled. Affected products: 5-pound bags with lot code 1000016385. Best-by date 4/30/2024.

On October 30, three lots of Victor Super Premium Dog Food, Select Beef Meal & Brown Rice Formula were recalled. Affected products: 5 pound, 15 pound, and 40 pound bags Best-by date 6/12/2024 Lot numbers 1000016890, 1000016891, 1000016892.

On November 9, Mid America Pet Food recalled all brands of pet food they make. Affected products: All dog and cat food, Best by dates before 10/31/2024, Brands include: Victor Super Premium Dog Foods, Wayne Feeds Dog Food, Eagle Mountain Pet food, Member’s Mark. Multiple bag sizes including: 5 pound, 15 pound, 16 pound, 30 pound, 40 pound, and 50 pound.

The CDC advises the following to Pet Owners:
- Throw away recalled pet food in a sealed trash bag and place it in a sealed trash can so that wildlife cannot get to it. Don’t let children touch the recalled pet food. Don’t feed recalled pet food to pets or other animals. Don’t donate recalled pet food.
- Clean surfaces and items, including pet items like bowls, that might have touched the recalled pet food.
- Contact a veterinary care provider if your pet has any of these symptoms after eating the recalled pet food: Vomiting, Diarrhea (may be bloody), Fever, Loss of appetite, Decreased activity level
- Contact a healthcare provider if you or your child have any of these severe Salmonella symptoms: Diarrhea and a fever higher than 102°F, Diarrhea for more than 3 days that is not improving, Bloody diarrhea, So much vomiting that you or your child cannot keep liquids down, Signs of dehydration, such as: Not peeing much, Dry mouth and throat, Feeling dizzy when standing up.

In case you are experiencing Salmonella symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.

I did not order a package that I received from Heather Mottysy. There was 2 identical items in it that I think was some kind of arm or elbow brace but they were thin and cheaply made. The material even had a strong odor to them.
