11/23 TFP Expanded Recall

11/23 TFP Expanded Recall

In a recent development on November 16th, 2023, TFP Nutrition has extended its voluntary recall initiated on October 20th, 2023. This expansion encompasses all dry dog and cat food manufactured at the company's Nacogdoches, Texas, facility. The decision to recall stems from concerns about potential Salmonella contamination, emphasizing the company's commitment to consumer safety. For a detailed overview, the FDA’s website provides comprehensive information about the recall.

What's Included in the Recall

The recall spans a range of dog and cat food products, each identified by specific production codes. Notable dog food brands affected include: 

  • Country Acres Farm Dog, Exclusive
  • H-E-B Texas Pets
  • Hill Country Fare
  • Lone Star, Member’s Mark
  • Retriever, and Star Pro

A full list of affected products and their corresponding lot codes can be found on the official recall notice.

Understanding the Risks

Salmonella contamination poses risks to both humans and pets. Individuals handling the recalled dry pet food may contract Salmonella, underscoring the importance of thorough handwashing after contact. Symptoms in humans may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever. In rare cases, more severe complications such as arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, and urinary tract symptoms can occur. Vulnerable populations, including children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems, face an increased risk of infection.

Impact on Pets

Pets exposed to Salmonella-infected food may exhibit symptoms such as lethargy, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Even asymptomatic pets can act as carriers, potentially infecting other animals or humans. If a pet has consumed the recalled product and shows symptoms, prompt veterinary attention is advised.

Response and Actions Taken

TFP Nutrition is actively collaborating with retailers to remove the affected products from the supply chain, prioritizing consumer safety. For consumers who have purchased the specified formulas with the indicated date codes, an immediate cessation of feeding the products to pets and proper disposal of both product and packaging is recommended. The date code, crucial for identification, is located on the back of the bag near the bottom, with 'XXXXX' indicating the timestamp of packaging.

Official Statement and Contact Information

Although an official statement from TFP Nutrition is pending, the company expresses regret for any potential issues arising from the recall. To assist concerned consumers, the company has shared this informative article. Those reaching out to TFP Nutrition are encouraged to provide essential details such as product name, size, and manufacture date or lot code, conveniently located on the back of the bag.
