  • RECALL: Bravo Recalls Some Raw Food Made for Dogs, Cats

    Posted on May 21, 2014 by in cat, dog, food, RECALL!

    Bravo announced a limited product recall after Listeria bacteria was discovered in one sample.

    The bacterium, Listeria monocytogenes, poses a greater threat to people than pets. A small number of dogs exhibited nausea and diarrhea that may be associated with the recalled food, Bravo stated, but no related human illnesses, which may include fever, headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain or diarrhea, were reported.

    Listeria infections are most common in newborns, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    The voluntary recall involves raw food formulated for dogs or cats.

    “Bravo is issuing this action out of an abundance of caution and sincerely regrets any inconvenience to pet owners as a result of this announcement,” the company reported.

    The recalled products were sold nationwide. Consumers are asked to complete a claim form available at www.bravorawdiet.com/ConsumerClaimForm05-2014.pdf and return it to the place of purchase for a refund or store credit.

    Most of the recalled food was made in New Zealand, where Bravo has since discontinued manufacturing operations. All of the company’s raw food is now produced in Manchester.
