FDA Recall: Salmonella & Listeria Found in 9 Pet Products Dangerous

The year started off with a recall of Sportmix Pet Food due to dangerous levels of aflatoxin. Now, we’re learning that another dog food is on recall.

Bravo Packing, Inc. had previous announced a voluntary recall of 2 of their pet food products. As of March 17, that recall has included all pet foods and bones in every size.

The FDA collected samples and found that they had tested positive for Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes. Since then, the food has been determined as a potential health risk to both pets and humans.

Fortunately, as of now, no human or animal illnesses have been reported.

What To Do When Your Dog’s Food is Recalled?

If you’ve learned that your dog’s food has been recalled, then you must stop feeding the food immediately. It is recommended that you return the food to the store you’ve purchased it from and you may be able to receive a refund. If this is not the case, feel free to dispose of the food in a way that prevents other animals from accessing it.

If your dog has been eating the recalled food, then you should plan on visiting your veterinarian to determine what actions, if any, you should take. Although you may not notice any symptoms or signs of illness, it’s always best to have a follow-up with your veterinarian.

If you believe your dog has become ill or has died because of eating a recalled food product, then, you should file a complaint with the FDA. You can file a report online, or contact the FDA consumer complaint coordinator in your state.

Any and all consumer questions should contact Brave Packing, Inc. at 856-299-1044 (M – F, 9 AM – 2 PM, EST).
