H-E-B Issues Voluntary Recall For Texas Pets Cat Food

Check your supplies.

H-E-B Exterior


If you happened to pick up some cat food while you were grabbing your Cafe Ole Christmas In A Cup Coffee at H-E-B, you will want to read this article. 

TFP Nutrition, which makes the food for H-E-B, announced a voluntary recall of the 16-pound bags of H-E-B Texas Pets Indoor Complete Dry Cat Food, due to potential Salmonella contamination. The cat food in question was made November 13 at its Nacogdoches facility and was only distributed in Texas and sold in H-E-B retail stores. It’s also worth noting the recall is only for the 16-pound bags of the food and will be marked “MFG 13 NOV 22” on the back of the bag.

Cats with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting, the FDA explained in its notice of the recall, although you’ll be forgiven for not being sure if your cat is lethargic. The FDA also notes that concerned owners should look to see if cats have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If your cat has consumed the recalled product and shows any of these symptoms, it’s a good idea to contact your veterinarian.

Luckily, so far no cat or human illness has been reported with respect to the recalled cat food. All recalled product has been removed from store shelves and no other H-E-B products are affected by the voluntary recall.
