Nestle Purina PetCare Company today recalled approximately 870 bags of dry cat food shipped to Colorado, Idaho and Oregon.

The products have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella, the company said in a press release issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Only the following products with both the "Best By" date and production codes shown are included in the voluntary recall:

Cat Chow Naturals Dry Cat Foot, 6.3 pounds, best by August 2012, code 10331083 13 17800 11320; Friskies Grillers Blend Dry Cat Food, 3.15 pounds, best by August 2012, code 10381083 06 50000 08450; Friskies Grillers Blend Dry Cat Food, 16 pounds, best by August 2012, code 10381083 06 50000 57578.

"Best By" date and production code numbers are found on the back or bottom of the bags.

The bags of dry cat food in this recall were distributed in error in February to a small number of customers, who may have further distributed the product to other Western states. There have been no consumer complaints and no reports of illness.

Pet owners who purchased any of these dry cat food products should discard it, the press release said.

Salmonella can affect animals eating the product and there is a risk to humans from handling contaminated products.
