A company announced Wednesday that it would be recalling some of its dog food sold exclusively at Wal-Mart because of possible salmonella contamination.
The recall by Brentwood is unrelated to recent pet food recalls connected to tainted Chinese proteins. A single batch of Ol' Roy Complete Nutrition dog food is being recalled.
The dog food was produced at a plant in Manassas and distributed to 69 Wal-Mart stores in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Ohio. Forty of the stores are in Virginia.
The company decided to recall the food after salmonella was detected. People who handle the food could be exposed to bacteria as well as their pets. There have been no illnesses so far according to the company.
Affected bags have the code 04 0735 1 and a "best by" date of April 13, 2008. Any consumers with questions can either call 800-624-7387 or visit the website below.
