Share

June 12, 2018 — Dave’s Pet Food of Agawam, MA, is voluntarily recalling a single lot of Dave’s Dog Food 95% Premium Beef cans because the products potentially contain elevated levels of beef thyroid hormone.

What’s Recalled?

The recalled product consists of a single batch (548 cases) of 13 oz., 95% premium beef dog food with a UPC # of –8503811167 and a date code of 08 2020.

Dave’s Dog Food 95% Premium Beef
Size: 13-ounce cans
UPC Code: 85038-11167
Date Code: 08/2020

Where Was It Sold?

The affected product was distributed all along the east coast of the US, sold in pet stores and e-commerce sites.
About Beef Thyroid Hormone

Dogs consuming high levels of beef thyroid hormone may exhibit symptoms such as increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness.

These symptoms may resolve when the consumption of these levels is discontinued.

However, with prolonged consumption these symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid or labored breathing.

Should these symptoms occur, we recommend pet owners contact their veterinarian immediately.

What Caused the Recall?

The recall was initiated after FDA informed Dave’s that one lot of product was analyzed and found to have elevated levels of thyroid hormone.
FDA analyzed the product after receiving a complaint that four dogs consuming it were found to have low Free T4 (fT4) and Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).

No other Dave’s products, or any other product manufactured by Dave’s Pet Food, are impacted.

The voluntary recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

What to Do?

Consumers who have purchased the specific product listed above should stop feeding it to their dogs.

If consumers have questions or would like to receive a refund or coupon for replacement product, they should call the company at 888-763-2738 Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM ET.

U.S. citizens can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.

About Beef Thyroid

Dogs consuming high levels of beef thyroid hormone may exhibit the following symptoms: increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness. These symptoms may resolve when consumption decreases.

If a dog consumes high levels for a long period of time, these symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea and rapid or labored breathing.

If your pet has consumed the product listed and has exhibited any of these symptoms, please discontinue feeding and contact your veterinarian.

What Caused the Recall?

This potential health risk was brought to Merrick’s attention as a result of the FDA sharing one consumer complaint where the dog’s health was temporarily impacted while eating Merrick Backcountry Great Plains Real Beef Jerky 4.5 ounce.

The dog’s health improved and fully recovered after discontinuing consumption of the treat.

Pet owners should know there is limited risk given treats are not intended for full nutrition and should only be occasionally consumed.

However, out of an abundance of caution and to maintain trust with our consumers, we are withdrawing all potentially impacted product.
We have not received any similar reports to date from consumers about issues with these products.

As a company of pet owners and pet lovers, we know our consumers place a tremendous amount of trust in us when their pet uses our products.
The quality and safety of our products are the top priority for our company.

We apologize to our retail customers and consumers and sincerely regret any inconvenience and concerns caused by this voluntary recall.

We are working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on this voluntary recall and will cooperate with them fully.

What to Do?

If you have product, please contact Merrick at 800-664-7387 from 8 am to 5 pm Central Time Monday through Friday.

In addition to the OC Raw Dog Chicken, Fish & Produce tests, the lab also conducted tests for OC Raw Dog Pumpkin Rox for Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella. The results were negative.

About Listeria

Listeria can cause severe and potentially fatal infection in animals consuming the pet food, and the humans that handle the pet food and surfaces exposed to the product.

Pets can be carriers of the bacteria and infect humans, even if the pets do not appear to be ill.

Short-term symptoms may include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

Young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to Listeria monocytogenes infections, which can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Healthy people infected with Listeria monocytogenes should monitor themselves and their pets for symptoms.

OC Raw Dog Freeze Dried Sardines Recall

Share

April 20, 2018 — OC Raw Dog, LLC of Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, is recalling its OC Raw Dog Freeze Dried Sardines product because it has the potential to cause botulism.

Botulism is a deadly disease caused by a toxin-producing bacterium known as Clostridium botulinum.

The toxin itself is one of the most potent poisons known and can be fatal to both pets and humans.

What’s Recalled?

The following products are affected by the recall:

OC Raw Dog Freeze Dried Sardines
Size: 3.2 oz bag
UPC Code: 095225853043

To date there have been no reported illnesses of dogs, cats, or persons in any connection with the sardines.

Where Was It Sold?

The affected product was shipped to distributors in the following states with the intent to be sold to wholesalers… who in turn sell to consumers.
The OC Raw Dog Freeze-Dried Sardines product would be found in independent pet specialty stores within the following states:

California
Colorado
Florida
Maryland
Minnesota
Pennsylvania
Texas

What Caused the Recall?

The product is being recalled because the sardines in the package exceed the FDA compliance guideline for fish larger than 5 inches.

The FDA has determined that salt-cured, dried, or fermented un-eviscerated (un-gutted) fish larger than 5 inches have been linked to outbreaks of botulism poisoning between 1981 and 1987… and again in 1991.

OC Raw was notified by the Minnesota Department of Food and Agriculture after a sample of its OC Raw Dog Freeze Dried Sardines was collected and determined to contain un-eviscerated or intact un-gutted fish that measure 6 to 6.5 inches.

This is greater than FDA guidelines of 5 inches for un-eviscerated fish.

This product has not tested positive for Clostridium botulinum.

Minnesota Department of Food and Agriculture also tested the product for Salmonella where the test returned negative.

About Botulism

Clostridium botulinum can cause severe and potentially fatal toxicity in both animals consuming the pet treat and people handling the pet treat or coming in contact with contact areas that have been exposed to the product.

Common symptoms may include dizziness, blurred or double vision, trouble with speaking or swallowing, difficulty breathing, muscle weakness, abdominal distension, and constipation.

Pets or persons experiencing these symptoms should seek immediate medical attention.

Company Message

OC Raw Dog is a family owned and managed by passionate dog enthusiasts who take very seriously the safety and wellbeing of its consumers and clients.
We are dedicated to producing a safe and quality product.

Because safety and quality is our priority we are conducting this voluntarily recall, we will be changing our sardine suppliers to insure the new Sardines are less than 5 inches.

Or if larger, the fish will be eviscerated.

We will continue to only use ingredients and products that are USDA certified and inspected for Human Consumption.

What to Do?

Distributors, retailers and consumers who have purchased OC Raw Dog’s Freeze Dried Sardines can return it to the location where it was purchased for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 844-215-3647 Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM PT.

About Salmonella and Listeria

Salmonella and Listeria can cause severe and potentially fatal infection in both the animals consuming the pet food, and the humans that handle the pet food.

There is a risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surface exposed to these products.

Pets can be carriers of the bacteria and infect humans, even if the pets do not appear to be ill.

Once Salmonella and/or Listeria monocytogenes gets established in the pet’s gastrointestinal tract, the animal can shed the bacteria when it has a bowel movement, and the contamination will continue to spread.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes should monitor themselves and their pets for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.
