Which Mid-America Pet Food Brands Were Recalled?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) began investigating the potential contamination of several cat and dog food brands. This was initiated following seven human cases of Salmonella Kiambu infection, allegedly associated with pet food made by Mid-America Pet Food.

Mid-America Pet Food recalled all the pet food brands it manufactured with a best-by date before 10/31/2024, which included Victor, Eagle Mountain, Wayne Feeds, and Member’s Mark.

Six of the seven reported human salmonella infection cases reported were children one year of age or younger. Five of these cases reported exposure to dogs and three reported feeding Victor pet food to their pets.

Some pets have reportedly died after ingesting these contaminated batches of pet food.

The following Mid-America pet food brands were recalled following reports of animal and human illness:

  • Victor Super Premium Dog Foods
  • Wayne Feeds Dog Food
  • Eagle Mountain Pet Food
  • Victor Super Premium Cat Food
  • Wayne Feeds Cat Food
  • Member’s Mark (Sam’s Club)

If you are unsure of whether your pet was affected by a particular brand, contact an attorney promptly to review your claim. They can help you identify which products were involved, and can determine whether you have a legal right to pursue compensation for your losses.

Can I Sue the Manufacturers of Contaminated Pet Foods?

Our legal team believes that the producers of any consumer product, including pet foods, should have their product properly tested before it is distributed to ensure it is safe to handle and consume. Should a company fail to control their production process, and a product injures consumers, they may be held liable for potential negligence.

According to the filed complaint, Mid-America has marketed and advertised the pet foods as suitable and safe for animals and as providing targeted nutrition for pets. In light of the salmonella recalls, plaintiffs claim Mid-America’s advertising was “false, deceptive, and misleading.”

The filed complaint alleges that plaintiffs would not have purchased the aforementioned pet food products had they known the products might have contained dangerous or toxic levels of Salmonella. They claim the company responsible did not adequately test, screen, or inspect the products before selling them.

Salmonella is a group of bacteria that can cause foodborne illness or salmonellosis. Because pet foods contain animal products, contaminated ingredients can transfer to household pets through food. If a human handles the contaminated pet food and then touches their mouth, they can accidentally ingest the bacteria.

The FDA warns that pet foods contaminated with Salmonella “are of a particular public health importance because they affect both human and animal health.”
