The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is cautioning pet owners not to feed their pets Performance Dog frozen raw pet food purchased after July 22, 2019 because a sample tested positive for Salmonella and Listeria mono.
The FDA collected two samples of raw pet food manufactured by Bravo Packing, Inc. during a routine inspection of the manufacturing facility in Carneys Point, NJ. The sample tested positive for Salmonella and Listeria mono. The sample of the beef raw pet food tested positive for Salmonella, but the product had not yet been distributed.
This is the second time Bravo Packing, Inc. product has tested positive for pathogen contamination. In September 2018, Bravo Packing, Inc. recalled all Performance Dog frozen raw pet food due to Salmonella. Also, during a 2016 inspection, the FDA collected samples of Bravo Packing, Inc. horse meat chunk animal food that tested positive for the drugs pentobarbital and phenytoin.
Bravo Packing, Inc. Performance Dog products are sold frozen in two-pound plastic pouches.
