(NBC News) --- A company that manufactures several brands of pet foods likely caused hundreds of animals to become ill or die.

The Food and Drug Administration announced Tuesday that it warned Midwestern Pet Foods, incorporated that the company's food safety programs is inadequate.

These are just two of many brands of food Midwestern Pet Food manufactures.

The FDA said it found salmonella and toxic levels of substance called Aflatoxin, a byproducts of mold that can grown on corn and grains used in pet foods, in midwestern's product.

As of August 9, the FDS says it knows of more than 130 pet deaths and 220 pet illnesses that may be linked to the tainted pet food.

Back in Match, Midwestern Foods recalled several pet foods at its Illinois facility, and in December of 2020 the game company issued a recap of food made in an Oklahoma facility.

FDA compliance officers told Midwestern Pet Foods that recall alone is not enough to prevent more tainted food entering the animal food supply.
