Hill’s® Pet Nutrition recalled 62 bags of its Science Diet® Adult Small & Toy Breed dry dog food. The reason for the recall was due to potential contamination by the Salmonella bacteria. Affected products include:
  • 15.5-lb bags of Science Diet® Adult Small & Toy Breed dry dog food with SKU number 9097, production code M094, and “best by” date of 08 2015.
