Bravo Packing Expanded Pet Food Recall Information
On March 16, 2021, Bravo Packing announced an expansion to their original recall of March 3. They are now recalling all pet food and bone products due to the presence of Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes (Listeria). An inspection of samples performed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) came back positive for both Listeria and Salmonella. The recall was expanded due to the potential cross-contamination of products, as well as the potential health risks to pets and humans.

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.
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.
