    Product and product lots that do not appear on the list above are not subject to
    this recall.
    
    No human or pet illnesses have been reported to-date. The recall notification is
    being issued based on a recall letter dated February 11, 2013 from Specialty
    Commodities, Inc. The above-referenced Kaytee products were originally
    manufactured as early as June 12, 2012. While Kaytee has not had any positive
    Salmonella results on finished product to suggest possible contamination, we are
    initiating this recall in accordance with FDA guidelines. Kaytee is taking
    immediate action to remove the potentially affected product from all retail
    stores and distribution centers.
    
    Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is a risk to humans
    from handling contaminated pet products. Pet owners should thoroughly wash their
    hands after having contact with these products and clean any surfaces that were
    exposed.
    
    Healthy persons exposed to Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all
    of the following symptoms: nausea, vomit, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal
    cramping, and fever. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result
    in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis,
    arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary track symptoms. Consumers
    exhibiting these symptoms after having contact with these products should
    contact their physician or healthcare provider.
    
    Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody
    diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite,
    fever and abdominal pain. Infection but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers
    and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled
    product(s) and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.
