Updated November 18, 2023: What Dog Dood Is On Recall Right Now?

The latest dog food to be recalled is from TFP Nutrition. The company is expanding its voluntary recall that was initiated to include all dry dog, dry cat, and catfish formulas manufactured in their Nacogdoches, Texas, facility due to the potential of Salmonella contamination.

Salmonella can impact animals consuming the products, and there is a potential danger to humans when they handle contaminated pet products. This risk increases, particularly if individuals fail to wash their hands properly after coming into contact with these products or any surfaces that have been in contact with them.

This recall is being issued to several of TFP Nutrition brands. Here is the complete TFP Nutrition List of Recalled Products. This recall has impacted no other TFP Nutrition brands. Consumers who have purchased any formulas listed above with these specific date codes should immediately stop feeding the affected products to their pets and dispose of any product and packaging.

If you were affected by this recall, an excellent alternative is The Farmer’s Dog. They can create personalized recipes to meet your dog’s nutritional needs. Our readers get 50% off their first order.

What to Do If Your Dog Food Is Recalled?

If your dog’s food has been recalled, stop feeding it immediately. You may obtain a refund by returning the food to the store where it was purchased. Alternatively, please dispose of the food in a way that prevents other animals from accessing it.

Consult your veterinarian if your dog has already eaten the recalled food to determine what actions you should take. It’s best to consult your veterinarian immediately, even if your dog shows no illness. Your vet can decide what action should be taken based on why the food was recalled.

Can’t reach your vet? Chat with a veterinary professional via our online live vet chat (24 hours a day, 7 days a week).

You should file a complaint with the FDA if your dog becomes ill or dies after eating a recalled food product. Contact your state’s FDA consumer complaint coordinator for more information or file a report online.

Try finding a similar food to replace the recalled food, or ask your veterinarian for recommendations if you cannot feed your dog his usual diet. Dogs may experience dietary distress when their diet changes abruptly, so be thoughtful about your approach.
