The FDA is recalling certain brands of pet food and horse feed for possible salmonella and rumensin contamination.
Merrick Pet Care recalled Jr. Texas Taffy Pet Treats and Manna Pro recalled Family Farm Complete Horse 10 Horse Feed.
Merrick Pet Care, of Amarillo, Texas, is recalling all batches of Jr. Texas Taffy Pet Treats because they may be contaminated with Salmonella.
Manna Pro Family Farm Complete Horse 10 horse feed is being recalled because certain lots contain monensin sodium or Rumensin.
Rumensin is a medication that has been approved for use with livestock and poultry, but can be fatal to horses. Products in question were sold between January 11, 2011 and January 21, 2011 in California, Nevada and Oregon.
Products tainted with Rumensin have been removed from feed store shelves, but consumers should make sure they have no Family Farm Horse 10 with the product code: "MADE 010611W" (printed on white packaging strip along the bottom) should stop using and return for refund. This recall does not affect humans.
