Bravo Pet Food Recall – Salmonella Risk!

SAFETY ALERT: Bravo Pet Foods is recalling a bunch of their products due to a possible presence of Salmonella! Salmonella is a potentially deadly bacteria that is known for being present most commonly in poultry products, and often carried by reptiles or small animals. It can be lethal to humans and pets alike, so any contact with a contaminated food or surface should be taken very seriously!

The presence of the bacteria was confirmed when Colorado State Department of Agriculture was routinely testing a package of Bravo Chicken Blend Diet for Dogs and Cats (2 lb. chub only) made on 11/13/14 with a best used by date of 11/13/16.

The recall is specifically for:bravopetfood

Item Number: 21-102

Size: 2 lb. (32 oz.) chub

This particular product was shipped all over the U.S. – 201 CASES of it – so please make sure that you are not feeding this product to your pets! Bravo Pet Foods also voluntarily recalled several other products of theirs that were manufactured on the same day in the facility:

These products were also shipped and sold all over the U.S. and although they did not directly test positive for Salmonella contamination – it is highly advised that these foods are disposed of in a safe manner.

Luckily, no pets or humans have gotten sick from the products so far, and hopefully it stays that way! Share this post with everyone just in case they have one of the harmful products. While elderly and infant humans are usually the only individuals whose infection could prove fatal, it is still advised that you contact your medical provider if you came in contact with the bacteria. Short term symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal cramping and diarrhea. In pets, the symptoms are similar and could also include other signs of infection.

To submit a claim for refund, pet owners should fill out Bravo’s claim form (http://www.bravorawdiet.com/images/BravoRecall_ConsumerClaimFormDec.pdf) and return to the store where they bought the product.
