In September 2015, OC Raw Dog voluntarily recalled 640 pounds of another product, OC Raw Chicken, Fish & Produce Raw Frozen Canine Formulation, because the food had the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
More than 2,000 pounds of OC Raw Dog Turkey & Produce Raw Frozen Canine Formulation have been voluntarily recalled because the food may be contaminated with Salmonella.
According to an FDA recall notice, a routine sampling of the dog food by the Nebraska Dept. of Food and Agriculture tested positive for Salmonella. OC Raw Dog, of Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., has stopped the production and distribution of the food while the company and FDA investigate what caused the contamination.
“We will be making several changes to our methods of production in order to further protect the product we so firmly believe in,” the company stated.
The recall is only for the following Turkey & Produce Raw Frozen Canine Formulations products:
- 6.5-pound Doggie Dozen Patties and 5-pound Bulk Bags
- Lot number: 1511
- Use by date: 10/8/15
The affected products were distributed in Colorado, Minnesota, Missouri and Pennsylvania, and sold through independent pet specialty retailers.
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 product, see a doctor or veterinarian.
If you purchased the recalled product, send a photo of the package with the lot number to Olivia@ocrawdog.com for verification. Return the product to the retailer where you purchased it for a full refund or replacement product.
