Due to salmonella concerns, United Pet Group of Cincinnati has expanded its recent recall of its Pro-Pet Adult Daily Vitamin tablets for dogs to include additional branded and private label pet care products. The expanded recall, issued July 2, includes more Pro-Pet products as well as various Excel-branded and private label pet supplements and cleaning products for cats and dogs.

Laboratory testing has revealed that some lots of these products may be contaminated with salmonella, according to the company. The company said it is recalling additional products out of “an abundance of caution.”

The affected products are in tablet and powder form and were sold nationally at various retailers, including Petco and Doctors Foster and Smith, United Pet Group reported.

The affected products carry expiration dates from “01/2013” through “06/2013.” Products with expirations dates before “01/2013” or after “06/2013” are not included in the recall.

The company had issued a voluntary recall in late June of all unexpired lots of its Pro-Pet Adult Daily Vitamin tablets for dogs. At that time, the company reported that one lot of the vitamin product was contaminated with salmonella.

Pets with salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some pets may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans, according to the company. Pet owners are urged to contact their veterinarian if their pet has consumed the recalled product and is exhibiting these symptoms.

Humans can also become infected, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the product or surfaces exposed to the recalled product, according to the company. Symptoms in humans may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever and headache. Children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems are particularly susceptible to infection, according to the company.

Consumers who have purchased the affected products are urged to contact United Pet Group or the place of purchase for further direction. Consumers may contact United Pet Group at 877-399-5226, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm EST.

OMG, that is why I have had so much trouble with my poor babies having bloody stools. I had a couple that were really bad and I was giving what I thought was good vitamins. Oh I feel so bad and they will here from me in the morning.

Thanks so much for this list. I was able to check calming tablets I brought for my my dog at & they aren't listed. What a relief & so grateful that you do this.

Wow...What a heart attack this gave me! I had been giving my dog the Excel Deter Coprophagia pills but luckily, it's a different SKU and UPC number. Again, what a heart attack!
