Earlier this year, the company issued a major international recall after hundreds of dogs became ill or died due to aflatoxin poisoning.

Just 3 months after issuing a major international recall prompted by the risk of aflatoxin poisoning associated with some of its pet food brands, Midwestern Pet Foods, Inc, has announced another recall—this time due to potential Salmonella contamination.
