By Elizabeth Henry    December 15, 2015 at 08:56PM / (0) comments

Stella & Chewy’s is voluntarily recalling select lots of Frozen Stella’s Super Beef Dinner Morsels due to potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

 

According to a company release,  on Dec. 10 Stella & Chewy’s was notified by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development that it had issued a stop sale order on Stella’s Super Beef Dinner Morsels for Dogs because it tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.

 

As a precautionary measure, the release said, the company is voluntarily recalling selected products from the affected lot.

 

The following Stella & Chewy’s  pet food products are being recalled:

 

Product Description        Size        UPC       Lot #      Use By Date

The company said they are also recalling the following products which may have come into contact with the affected lot:

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Additionally, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

 

If you or your pet had contact with the recalled product, you are advised to watch for symptoms that may develop. Common symptoms associated with Listeria infection include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. If you, your pet or a family member is experiencing these symptoms, you are urged to contact a medical professional.
