Hartz Mountain Corporation has issued a voluntary recall of one lot of Wardley Betta fish food because products in that lot have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The recall was initiated after Salmonella was detected in a lot of the fish food during routine microbial product testing.
The recall applies to 1.2-ounce plastic containers of Wardley Betta fish food, marked with UPC 0-43324-01648 and lot code PP06331. Products were packaged by Hartz at its Pleasant Plain, Ohio, USA facility after a single production run and shipped throughout the US from May 13-June 4.
The company says it has not received any reports of illness to humans or animals as a result of contact with the recalled product.
Consumers may contact Hartz Consumer Affairs at +1.800.275.1414 with any questions and to obtain reimbursement for purchased product.
