bravo pet food recallSeveral frozen Bravo chicken and turkey pet food products have been voluntarily recalled because they may be contaminated with Salmonella.

According to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recall notice, the products were recalled after routine testing by the Nebraska Dept. of Agriculture found that some of them contained Salmonella. The affected products were distributed nationwide beginning on Nov. 15, 2013 to distributors, stores, online retailers and directly to consumers.

Salmonella can affect animals as well as people who handle the contaminated food. The symptoms for both people and animals include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. If you or your pet experiences these symptoms after handling or eating the recalled products, see a doctor or veterinarian. Bravo has not yet received any reports of illness in either people or animals.

This is the second Bravo pet food recall this year. In May, the company recalled products that were possibly contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that is generally harmless to pets but can cause sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people

The following two Bravo products are being recalled because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
