A recall of Nature's Variety raw, frozen chicken-flavored pet food has been expanded, says the Nebraska-based company.
The pet food is being recalled because it may be contaminated with salmonella, the Associated Press reported. The recall includes six-pound packages of chicken patties, two-pound packages of chicken chubs, and three-pound packages of chicken medallions.
The initial recall included only packages with a best-by date of Nov. 10, 2010. The expanded recall includes packages with best-by dates of Oct. 29 and Nov. 9, 2010, the AP reported.
Salmonella can cause serious infections in young children, the elderly and others with weakened immune systems. Consuming the bacteria can also cause pets to become ill.
