Potential Salmonella presence in dog food

Doane Pet Care issued a voluntary recall on a specific single lot of 55 pound bonus bags of Ol'Roy Complete Nutrition dry dog food due to possible contamination of Salmonella.

The affected product was manufactured at a facility in Manassas, VA and distributed solely by some Wal-Mart Stores. This recall does not affect any other Ol'Roy products and is unrelated to the Menu Foods recall of pet foods.

No illness reported
The recall was issued after the Food and Drug Administration detected salmonella in the product. However, Diane has not confirmed presence of this pathogen in the dog food, according to the recall state by the company. No illnesses have been reported associated with use of the dry dog food. But Doane Pet Care says it regrets "any inconvenience to pet owners."

69 Wal-Mart Stores potentially received this product from 2 distribution warehouses in Virginia. The 69 stores are located in Maryland (4 stores), North Carolina (10), Ohio (1), Pennsylvania (3), Virginia (40) and West Virginia (11).

Doane Pet Care offers a full refund to those consumers who return the empty bad of the affected dog food to the detail store.
