United Pet Group extends voluntary recall to include dozens of pet products

Doctors Foster and Smith Fresh Breath tabs

Doctors Foster and Smith Fresh Breath tabs are just one of dozens of products recalled by United Pet Products for possible Salmonella contamination

In June, United Pet Group issued a voluntary product recall for Pro Pet’s Adult Daily Vitamins for Dogs because of a possible exposure to Salmonella.

Yesterday, they significantly expanded that recall to include dozens of United Pet Group Pro-Pet and Excel branded products for dogs and cats, and certain other private label brands of the same products, including Petco, Doctors  Foster and Smith, Natures Miracle, Excel, and Pro-Pet. 

All of the affected products are in tablet and powdered form, and include products like breath freshening tablets, vitamins and supplements, and ear powders.

Here is a list of the products included in the expanded recall:
