Victor Super Premium Dog Food Recalled Due to Salmonella Contamination

by Lisa

Mid America Pet Food, located in Mount Pleasant, Texas, has issued a voluntary recall for one lot of Victor Super Premium Dog Food, Hi-Pro Plus, following the detection of potential Salmonella contamination in a sample. This recall comes in response to a positive Salmonella test result from a random sample test conducted by the South Carolina Department of Agriculture.

The affected dog food was manufactured at the Mount Pleasant, TX production facility. Salmonella can pose health risks to animals consuming the contaminated product and can also affect humans, particularly children, the elderly, and individuals with compromised immune systems who handle contaminated products. Proper handwashing is essential after any contact with these products or surfaces exposed to them.


Dogs with Salmonella infections may exhibit symptoms such as lethargy, diarrhea (including bloody diarrhea), fever, and vomiting. Some may experience a decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain. Even seemingly healthy dogs with Salmonella infections can become carriers and transmit the bacteria to other animals or humans. If your dog has consumed the recalled product and shows these symptoms, it is advisable to contact your veterinarian.


Recalled Product Details:


The affected product was exclusively sold in 5-pound bags.
These products were distributed to various distributors and retailers across the United States.
The recall pertains to 644 cases of 5-pound bags with lot code 1000016385 and a Best By Date of 4/30/2024.
Lot code information can be found on the back of the bag.
As of the time of this recall announcement, no cases of illness in humans or pets related to this issue have been reported.


Retailers and distributors are urged to promptly remove the recalled lot from their inventory and store shelves. Recalled products must not be sold or donated. Instead, they should be disposed of in a manner inaccessible to children, pets, and wildlife. Furthermore, pet food bowls, cups, and storage containers should be thoroughly washed and sanitized. Pet owners are reminded to wash and sanitize their hands after handling the recalled food or any items that have come into contact with it.

About Salmonella Infections:

Food contaminated with Salmonella bacteria may not exhibit any visible signs of spoilage. Anyone can fall ill due to a Salmonella infection, but individuals with weakened immune systems, including infants, children, the elderly, and those with compromised immunity, are at a higher risk of severe illness, according to the CDC.

Symptoms of a Salmonella infection typically include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever, usually appearing within 12 to 72 hours after consuming contaminated food. In otherwise healthy adults, the illness typically lasts four to seven days. In some instances, severe diarrhea may necessitate hospitalization.

Individuals at greater risk, such as older adults, children, pregnant women, and immunocompromised individuals like cancer patients, are more likely to develop severe illnesses and potentially life-threatening conditions.

Even individuals who do not display symptoms can still carry and spread the infection to others. It is important to consult a healthcare provider if you suspect a Salmonella infection after using any of the recalled products. Specialized tests are often required for diagnosis, given that Salmonella symptoms can resemble those of other illnesses, potentially leading to misdiagnosis.
