Some Raw Dog Food Is Being Recalled Over Salmonella And Listeria Fears

The Food & Drug Administration has announced a recall of pet food due to potential salmonella and listeria contamination. Not only can these bacteria cause adverse effects on your pet if they consume it, but coming in contact with the pet food when serving it can lead to symptoms in humans as well.

Bravo Packing, Inc. in Carneys Point, NJ, has issued a recall of its ground beef and Performance Dog raw pet food. The concern is that these products may be contaminated with salmonella and listeria after a routine FDA inspection of Performance Dog and ground beef samples from Bravo Packing tested positive for them both.

If consumed by your pets, you may notice symptoms of infection like lethargy, diarrhea, bloody stools, fever, or vomiting. Pets may also show signs of salmonella infection by decreased appetite, fever, or abdominal pain but can also be infected even without showing symptoms. If your pet has consumed the product contact your veterinarian for a check-up.

As for humans, there is a possibility for pet owners to become infected if they handled the recalled pet food without washing their hands or the surrounding surfaces. Young children, elderly individuals, and those that are pregnant are especially at risk of serious and sometimes fatal salmonella infection. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever.
