Frozen pet treats recalled for Salmonella
Routine testing by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture discovered the presence of Salmonella in product sampled from a retail location, prompting the voluntary recall of 2-lb tubes of Bravo! Chicken Blend frozen raw diet tubes. The recalled product was made June 14, 2012, and distributed nationwide.
The recalled 2-lb tubes of Bravo! Raw Food Diet Chicken Blend for Dogs and Cats have product code 21-102 and batch identification code 6 14 12 printed on the white hang tag attached to the bottom of the plastic film tube. According to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) release, consumers should return unopened frozen tubes of food to the store where purchased for a full refund. If tubes have been opened, the plastic batch ID tag should be removed, washed and returned to the store where purchased for a full refund. Unused product should be disposed of in a securely covered trash receptacle. The FDA recommends everyone follow appropriate pet food handling guidelines.
