2 Recalls for Pet Foods: Darwin’s Natural Selections + ZooLogics brand Dog Foods (US/Nationwide); Blue Ridge Beef brand BRB Complete Raw Pet Food Lot#GA0131 (US/FL, GA, NC, SC, TN)

This post was originally published on this site

Reason for Recall: Salmonella and/or E. coli O128
Company: Arrow Reliance, dba Darwin’s Natural Pet Products
Product: Natural Selections, and ZooLogics brands fresh, raw dog foods (see below)

Details: Customers who have any of the affected products should dispose of the pet food as regular garbage, and contact Darwin’s for replacement by emailing productsafety@darwinspet.com or by calling 866-832-8319, Monday-Friday, 6am-6pm, Pacific Time; and Saturdays, 7am-3pm, Pacific Time.

The lab testing of the Darwin’s products that spurred Monday’s recall was undertaken by FDA as part of the agency’s investigation into prior complaints of illness and/or death in animals that were fed Darwin’s Natural Selections or Darwin’s ZooLogics products.

Monday’s recall covers the following items:

       • Natural Selections Chicken with Organic Vegetables Meals for Dogs, Net wt. 2lbs., Lot #43887, manufacture date 1/30/2018

       • Natural Selections Duck with Organic Vegetables Meals for Dogs, Net wt. 2lbs., Lot #44147, manufacture date 2/5/2018

       • ZooLogics Chicken Meals with Organic Vegetables for Dogs, Net wt. 2lbs., Lot #44037, manufacture date 2/7/2018

       • ZooLogics Turkey with Organic Vegetables Meals for Dogs, Net wt. 2lbs., Lot #44127, manufacture date 2/4/2018

All four recalled lots are potentially contaminated with Salmonella. In addition, the ZooLogics Turkey product also tested positive for E. coli O128. 

This is the fifth in a series of recalls initiated by the company since October 2016 and the first to be announced by public notice. Previous recalls were reported by direct email and/or telephone communication with Darwin’s customers.

Consumers should not feed their pets recalled lots of raw pet food manufactured by Arrow Reliance Inc. Consumers who purchased this raw pet food should throw it away. People who think they might have become ill or their pets may be ill from exposure to contaminated raw pet food should talk to their health care providers or veterinarians.

Consumers who had this product in their homes should clean their refrigerator and clean and disinfect all bowls, utensils, food prep surfaces, pet bedding, toys, floors and any other surfaces that the food or pet may have had contact with. Because animals can shed the bacteria when they have bowel movements, it’s particularly important to clean up the animal’s feces in yards or parks where people or other animals may become exposed.

Pet owners who opt to feed their pets a raw diet should consult FDA’s Tips to Prevent Foodborne Illness from Raw Pet Food.

FDA encourages consumers to report complaints about this and other pet food products electronically through the Safety Reporting Portal or by calling their state’s FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinators.
