FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- FRANKLIN, Tenn. -- August 21, 2007 -- Mars Petcare
US, Inc. today announces a voluntary recall of select 50 lb bags of Red
Flannel Large Breed Adult Formula dry dog food sold in two stores in
Pennsylvania. Only three bags of product were actually sold, with only one bag
still unaccounted for. The pet food is being recalled because it has the
potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, which can cause serious
infections in dogs and cats, and, if there is cross contamination, in people,
especially children, the aged, and people with compromised immune systems.

The recalled product should not be sold or fed to pets. Pet owners should
dispose of product in a safe manner (example, a securely covered trash
receptacle) and return the empty bag to the store where purchased for a full
refund.

Salmonella can potentially be transferred to people handling this pet food,
especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact
with the product or any surfaces exposed to the product. Healthy people
potentially infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all
of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea,
abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious
ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain,
eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs
after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare
providers.

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. Well animals can be carriers and infect other
animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these
symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

Mars Petcare is issuing this action out of an abundance of caution and it

Salmonella in a sample of Red Flannel Large Breed Adult Formula dry dog food

In an effort to prevent the transmission of Salmonella from pets to family
members and care givers, the FDA recommends that everyone follow appropriate
pet food handling guidelines when feeding their pets. A list of safe pet food
handling tips can be found at:
