Big Dog Natural (BDN) is voluntarily recalling some lots of its raw dehydrated Chicken Supreme dog food because it may be contaminated with Salmonella and some lots of Fish Supreme dog food that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The affected products were shipped to online customers from Oct. 31 to Nov. 13, 2015. The recall includes all weight volumes of the products.
Big Dog Natural, which is based in Lakewood, N.J., became aware of a potential issue after receiving notification from the FDA that a sample of Chicken Supreme tested positive for Salmonella and a sample of Fish Supreme tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes, according to a news release today.
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.
Listeria monocytogenes 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 high fever, stiffness, nausea and diarrhea.
If you or your dog have any of these symptoms after touching or eating the recalled products, see a doctor or veterinarian.
If you bought the recalled product, stop feeding it to your dog. Consumers can obtain a full refund or exchange by returning the product in its original packaging.
