Recall Alert: Raw Pet Food Linked to Salmonella

Adjust Comment Print

Redbarn Pet Products is voluntarily recalling it's Redbarn's 7-inch Bully Stick three pack, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

FDA has received a total of six complaints of illness in animals who were fed the raw pet foods, including the death of one kitten. Veterinarians who wish to have dogs tested for Salmonella may do so through the Vet-LIRN Network if the pet is from a household with a person infected with Salmonella. Pets can also become carriers of the bacteria-without getting ill themselves-and infect humans. The six animal cases were connected to consumption of Darwin's Natural and ZooLogics pet foods, manufactured by Arrow Reliance Inc., over the period from October 17, 2016, to February 10, 2018. 6 animal infestations were confirmed after consuming ZooLogics and Darwin's Natural pet food.

The company recalled the products after being alerted to positive findings of Salmonella and/or Listeria monocytogenes in samples of their raw pet food products. Nevertheless, the company is recalling the product out of an abundance of caution.

Darwin's Natural Pet Products recalled select lots of its Darwin's ZooLogics dog food, which includes ZooLogics Chicken and Vegetable Meals for Dogs manufactured November 2, 2017 and ZooLogics Duck and Vegetable Meals for Dogs manufactured November 16, 2017.

The FDA is asking consumers to report complaints about this and other pet food products through the Safety Reporting Portal or by calling their state's FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinators.

The products have case codes of 9900008, 9900009, 9900014, and 9900015.

Darwin's Natural Pet Products recalled select lots of its ZooLogics dog food, which includes ZooLogics Chicken and Vegetable Meals for Dogs manufactured on 11/2/17 and ZooLogics Duck and Vegetable Meals for Dogs manufactured on 11/16/17.

Both lots were sold through online stores and the recall appeared after a dog did test positive for infestation with salmonella, together with positive results for Darwin's Natural food eaten.

The recall pertains only to a single product-Redbarn's 7-inch Bully Stick 3-pack-which was distributed to pet specialty retail stores.

No illnesses, injuries or complaints have been reported, Redbarn said.

The FDA highlighted its zero tolerance for harmful bacteria found in food products for pets. The UPC of the recalled product is #7 85184 25105 8.

The Colorado Department of Agriculture also prompted the recall of Smokehouse Pet Products' four-ounce bags of Beefy Munchies for dogs after it found salmonella in two packages manufactured by the company. The products were sold in Washington, Colorado, Michigan and North Carolina.
