Raw Pet Food Recall

September 26, 2014

For those of you who feed raw food to your dogs and cats, this recall of certain Bravo! products may be of interest.
Bravo! has issued a nationwide recall of select lots and products of Bravo Pet Food because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly or frail persons and anyone with a weakened immune system.

Healthy adults may suffer only short-term symptoms, such as high fever, headache, stiffness, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pain. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Healthy cats and dogs seldom become ill from Listeria. They might display some of the symptoms listed above for humans. Always contact your veterinarian if your pets should exhibit such symptoms.

The recalled products are as follows:

This is a voluntary recall issued because the Food and Drug Administration has reported 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.

If you should have any of these affected products, disposed of them in a securely fastened container. Submit the Product Recall Claim form available on the www.bravopetfoods.com website for a full refund, or call 866-922-9222 Monday – Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST.
