Dog owners, listen up!
Freshpet is announcing a voluntary recall of a single lot of Freshpet Select Fresh From The Kitchen Home Cooked Chicken Recipe, due to potential contamination with salmonella.
The affected products include the 4.5-pound bag with a sell-by date of Oct. 29, 2022. The bags were sold at Target and Walmart stores in several states, including New Jersey.
