Bravo Packing Pet Food Recall – Bravo Packing, Inc., of Carneys Point, NJ, has issued a recall for all Ground Beef and Performance Dog food, a frozen raw pet food, due to a potential contamination of Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes (Listeria).
On March 3, 2021, Bravo Packing initiated a recall for its Ground Beef and Performance Dog food products due to possible Listeria and Salmonella contaminations. Samples of each were inspected by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and subsequently tested positive for both Salmonella and Listeria.
Bravo Packing has a distributor in Brooklyn, NY that takes orders for brick-and-mortar retail stores, as well as directly to customers nationwide.
The affected Performance Dog and Ground Beef pet food come frozen in 2 and 5 pound plastic sleeves.
Common symptoms of salmonellosis (Salmonella infection) may include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating a contaminated food product. Illness usually lasts from about 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. Questions or concerns about foodborne illness should also be directed to your health care provider.
Listeria is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
