Symptoms of salmonella in cats

Salmonella poisoning in cats shows symptoms of fever, diarrhea, and stomach cramps. Symptoms generally begin 12 to 72 hours after exposure. Contact your veterinarian if symptoms of illness appear.

The JM Smucker Company wants consumers to know, “On rare occasions, salmonella can cause more serious conditions, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms.”

Also note that contact with salmonella-infested products can also make people sick. Practice safe food disposal practices when disposing of potentially contaminated food. Wash hands, disinfect countertops and food bowls. Dispose of food and rubbish bags in outdoor bins that are protected from animal theft in the open air. We also don’t want stray cats, feral cats or other wild animals to get sick.

Voluntary recall as a security is number one

Again, the recall is voluntary, but salmonella concerns are always taken seriously. The JM Smucker Company and Meow Mix® issued the recall to keep cats and their loyal human customers as safe and healthy as possible. The JM Smucker Company and Meow Mix® praise their safety and quality standards as the safety of people and animals is a top priority.

If you have a concern or need to report an illness, cat parents can call 1-888-569-6728 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET, or visit www.meowmix.com/contact-us.
