Michigan Authorities Find Listeria in Frozen Dog Food, Company Recalls Product
We have another recall to share with you —
But it’s not just your health that could be at risk, but your pets.
Northwest Naturals, a company in Oregon, is recalling select lots of their petfood chubs because they could be contaminated with listeria.
Animals who eat the food could be at risk, along with anyone who handles the food.
The FDA says the contaminated product was isolated to a single batch that was distributed in only six states, and one of them was Michigan.
The petfood was then sold through specialty pet stores.
The affected product is a 5 pound Chicken and Salmon Dog Food.
It comes in frozen chubs with a UPC code of 0 87316 38440 6.
Its best buy date code is 15 082218.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
The product was produced and sold over a year ago.
Testing at that time found no trace of contamination.
However, the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development bought one chub and tested it.
That test was positive for listeria.
Customers should check the lot code of any 5 pound frozen chicken and salmon chubs they have.
And if you do have the affected product, you should return it to the store for a refund.
