Pet Food Recalls






Bravo Recalls Pet Food for Potential Listeria Contamination

BY NEWS DESK | 

Bravo is recalling select lots and product(s) of Bravo Pet Food because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

This voluntary recall has been issued because the FDA has reported that an independent lab detected the bacteria in a sample during a recent review.

The company has received a limited number of reports of dogs experiencing nausea and diarrhea that may be associated with these specific products. The company has received no reports of human illness as a result of these products.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

However, healthy cats and dogs rarely become sick from Listeria. Animals ill with Listeria will display symptoms similar to the ones listed above for humans. People who have concerns about whether their pet has Listeria should contact their veterinarian.

The recalled product was distributed nationwide to distributors, retail stores, Internet retailers and directly to consumers. The product can be identified by the batch ID code (best used by date) printed on the side of the plastic tube or on a label on the box.

The recalled products are as follows:

1) These products are being recalled because they may have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

PRODUCT: RAW FOOD DIET BRAVO! BEEF BLEND FOR DOGS AND CATS (Made in New Zealand)
All 2lb., 5lb., and 10lb. tubes

2) These products are being recalled out of an abundance of caution because, while they did not test positive for pathogens, they were manufactured in the same manufacturing facility or on the same day as products that did test positive.

Recall on Pet Treats

Several cat food and cat treat brands from Arthur Dogswell might contain an
unapproved antibiotic.
Catswell Treat Recall
Catswell cat treats with a "Best Before" date of Jan. 28, 2015, are being
pulled from shelves.
Dogswell and Catswell jerky treats made with chicken or duck and bearing a
"Best Before" date of Jan. 28, 2015, or earlier are being withdrawn because
they may contain trace amounts of an antibiotic residue not approved for use
in the United States.   

The dog and cat treats should not pose a health risk to pets or people,
according to the manufacturer, Los Angeles-based Arthur Dogswell LLC.

The company reported Friday that the New York State Department of
Agriculture and Markets discovered the antibiotic during routine product
sampling. The antibiotic is accepted for use in poultry in other parts of
the world, the company added.

The withdrawn dog and cat food products include Chicken Breast and Duck
Breast jerky under the Breathies, Happy Heart, Happy Hips, Mellow Mut, Shape
Up, Veggie Life, Vitality and Vitakitty brands. Chicken Breast and Duck
Breast jerky with a "Best Before" date of Jan. 29, 2015, and later are not
affected.

The date is stamped in black ink on the back of the package on the bottom
right-hand side.

"We encourage our customers to reach out to us with any questions about this
withdrawal," said company spokesman Brad Armistead. "It is important for
consumers to know that all Dogswell and Catswell products remaining on the
market are safe for dogs and cats to consume and enjoy as directed.

"Since January, the company has been using state-of-the-art testing
procedures to ensure that our chicken and duck products do not contain these
unapproved antibiotics," Armistead added.

Dog and cat owners may request a refund by calling 888-559-8833 from 8 a.m.
to 5 p.m. Pacific time Monday through

           

      Eukanuba and Iams Pet Food Recall for Salmonella

Procter & Gamble Co. has recalled several types of dry pet food because the
products may be contaminated with salmonella.
The company released a warning on Wednesday that one-tenth of 1 percent of
its annual production of dry pet food may be affected, including dry cat and
dog food sold under the Eukanuba and Iams brands.

Salmonella can affect animals eating the products as well as humans who
handle it, especially if they haven't washed their hands after coming in
contact with the contaminated product.

The recalled food was sent to retailers across the United States and
produced during a 10-day period at a single manufacturing plant. No other
dry pet food, canned wet food, treats or supplements have been affected.

Consumers who purchased one of the potentially contaminated products should
stop using it, throw it away and contact P&G at 800-208-0172, iams.com

Nestle Purina PetCare Company to voluntarily withdraw Waggin' Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treat products

St. Louis, Missouri, January 9, 2013... Nestle Purina PetCare Company and its wholly owned subsidiary Waggin' Train, LLC today announced it is voluntarily withdrawing its Waggin' Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treats sold in the United States until further notice.

The Company is taking this action after leaning this week that the New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets found trace amounts of antibiotic residue in samples of Waggin' Train and Canyon Creek Ranch chicken jerky products. These antibiotics are approved for the use in poultry in China and other major countries, including European Union member states, but are not among those approved in the U.S. Antibiotics are commonly used globally, including in the United States, when raising animals for human consumptions. Waggin' Train and Caynon Creek Ranch products are safe to feed as directed. However, due to regulatory inconsistencies among countries, the presence of antibiotic residue is technically an adulteration in the Unites States. This finding does not pose a safety risk to pets.
