Dog Food Recall

Another Dog Food Recall

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is cautioning pet owners not to feed their pets Performance Dog frozen raw pet food after a sample tested positive for Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes.

Two samples of different recipes tested positive for the bacteria during an inspection of Bravo Packing Inc., the manufacturer of Performance Dog raw pet food.

One of the products had yet to be distributed. The product sold to customers is Performance Dog raw pet food, lot code 072219, in two-pound pouches.

Lot codes are located on the outside of the boxes, but lot codes are not printed on the individually sealed pouches. Therefore, without the boxes, customers will not know if the product they have is affected.

The FDA suggests the Performance Dog frozen raw pet food produced on or after July 22, 2019, without lot codes, be thrown away. Since these products are sealed and stored frozen, it is believed people may still have them in their possession. The products contain a serious health threat to both animals and humans.

This is the second time a Bravo Packing, Inc. product has tested positive for pathogen contamination. In September 2018, Bravo Packing, Inc. recalled all Performance Dog frozen raw pet food due to Salmonella.

Also, during a 2016 inspection, the FDA collected samples of Bravo Packing, Inc. animal food which tested positive for the drugs pentobarbital and phenytoin.
