j.j. fuds expands recall

J.J. Fuds, Inc., which voluntarily recalled one lot of its frozen, raw Premium Natural Blends Chicken Tender Chunks dog food Jan. 24, has expanded the recall to include all lots of the product, along with all lots of J.J. Fuds Beef Tender Chunks and J.J. Fuds Duckling Tender Chunks.

According to a Feb. 5 press release, the recalled dog food has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes and/or Salmonella. (A Jan. 27 fax sent to distributors identified additional recalled products as “Beef Strips” and “Duck Strips.”)

The recalled products were sold in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

They can be identified by the UPC number and batch ID code (manufactured date), which are printed on the back of the individual plastic bag or on the master case label.

J.J. Fuds recalled these products after a routine sampling program by the Michigan Dept. of Agriculture and Rural Development resulted in a positive test for Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella. These organisms can affect animals who eat the contaminated products, and there is also a risk to humans who handle the products, especially if they do not thoroughly wash their hands (and any surfaces the product touched) afterward.

Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. The symptoms for both people and dogs include nausea and diarrhea. If you or your dog have these symptoms after touching or eating the recalled product, see a doctor or veterinarian.

If you purchased the recalled products, return them to the retailer for a refund and proper disposal.

J.J. Fuds can be reached at 888-435-5873 (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. CST) or by visiting jjfuds.com.
