OC Raw Dog Recalls More Than 2000 lbs. of Dog Food Due to Possible Salmonella Risk

By Brandon Kane    May 18, 2015 at 04:04PM / (1) comments

OC Raw Dog of Rancho Santa Margarita, CA recalled 2055 lbs. of Turkey & Produce Raw Frozen Canine Formulation because of a potential Salmonella contamination.

 

The recall is limited to Turkey & Produce Raw Frozen Canine Formulations that were packaged into 6.5 lb. Doggie Dozen Patties and 5 lb. Bulk Bags with the lot number 1511 and use by date of 10/8/15. These products were distributed in Minnesota, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and Colorado and sold to consumers through independent pet specialty retailers.

 

This dog food recall is a result of a sampling program by the Nebraska Department of Food and Agriculture which revealed a presumptive positive to Salmonella contamination.

 

OC Raw Dog has stopped the production and distribution of these products as FDA and the company continues their investigation.  

 

Those at risk of being infected with Salmonella should monitor for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever. Salmonella can also result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms.

 

 

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If a pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, or another pet or human has these symptoms, contact your veterinarian or health care provider.

 

OC Raw Dog are asking people who have purchased a recalled product to submit a picture of the package with the lot number to [email protected] for verification of product in the marketplace. They can then return the dog food to the retailer where it was originally purchased for a full refund or replacement product.

 

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-844-215-DOGS (3647) Monday thru Friday 9am – 5pm PST.

    mostly these recalls are to protect people. dogs (healthy ones anyway) do not have much problem with salmonella. their digestive system can handle that stuff usually. people not washing their hands after preparing their dogs food is more of the issue.
