In the wake of the recent recall for their Raw Food Diet Chicken Blend for Dogs and Cats, Bravo! issued a press release on April 3, 2013 announcing another list of recalled products due to the risk of salmonella.
"This recall is being issued out of an abundance of caution, as while these products tested Negative for pathogens by an independent third party prior to distribution, they were run on the same day or an adjacent day to a product that tested positive for pathogens. The product that tested positive has been 100 percent contained and is not subject to this recall."
For complete details regarding the specific products recalled, read the press release here.
The company advises pet parents to visit their website www.bravorawdiet.com or call toll free (866) 922-9222 Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. for more information.
Symptoms of salmonella poisoning in pets
Whether it be raw, dry, wet or home cooked, keep a close eye out for salmonella alerts and how they might impact you and your pet.
Pets with salmonella infections may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. The pet may appear lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea. They may also vomit.
Please note that infected but healthy pets can infect other animals or people if they are left untreated. Therefore, if your pet was fed a product on the recall list and is showing symptoms noted above, contact your veterinarian immediately.
