Salmonella can affect animals eating the product, and there is a risk to humans from handling contaminated products.  People handling contaminated dry pet food can become infected with Salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to this product.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.  Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms.

Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

Cats with Salmonella infections may exhibit decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain.  If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infected but otherwise healthy cats can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If you cat has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.
The product was distributed to customers located in California, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio and Wisconsin, who may have further distributed the product to other states.
Nestle Purina PetCare Company became aware of the contamination as a result of samples that had been collected in several retail stores.

Jarvis -- A web search of "Purina flea products" did reveal some items. Google this phrase and see what they offer -- Good luck!

My cat puff puff has been eating purina one products for over 15 now. Using purina brand clumping litter only as well. last winter I switched to purina one beyond and for the first year ever he caught two rabbit this spring. I am very satisfied with purina products. Thank- you. I am wondering if purina offers flee and tic drops for cats. I am looking for a flee and tic drop that is easy on the liver and other organs of older cats. I trust your products and would like your feedback.

As far as I am concerned, just reading the ingredients in Purina cat food, hard and canned, I never feed my cats Purina products. My cats throw up the food anyway, especially the hard food. I think it is poor quality.
