Frozen dog food recalled over possible salmonella, listeria contamination

Recalls And Warnings

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning dog owners about a recall of frozen raw pet food.

New Jersey-based Bravo Packing, Inc. is recalling its Ground Beef and Performance Dog products because they may be contaminated with salmonella and listeria.

The bacteria can cause illness in animals eating the products, as well as humans who handle the food, according to the FDA. No illnesses have been reported to date.

The affected products came in 2-pound and 5-pound plastic sleeves. The FDA says consumers should throw them away and contact Bravo Packing at 856-299-1044 with any questions.

The FDA also announced a voluntary recall of six types of sprinkles from Wilton Brands.

The affected products may contain milk, which is not listed among the ingredients and could cause an allergic reaction if consumed by someone with an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk.

The FDA says there has been one report of an allergic reaction associated with the products.

The sprinkles were distributed to retail stores nationwide, according to the FDA. Consumers are advised to dispose of them or bring them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

A death has been reported in connection with a listeria outbreak that prompted a recall of El Abuelito Cheese Inc. products.

According to the CDC, 11 people have been sickened in Connecticut, New York, Maryland and Virginia, which resulted in 10 hospitalizations and one death.

The initial recall late last month involved queso fresco products, but it’s since been expanded to include Oaxaca cheese, cotija cheese, and crema products, which were also sold under Rio Grande and Rio Lindo brand names.

Consumers, restaurants and retailers are advised not to eat, serve or sell the recalled products. The FDA also recommends cleaning and sanitizing any surfaces and containers that may have come into contact with the cheese to prevent cross-contamination.
