Title: FDA Investigates Pattern of Contamination in Certain Raw Pet Foods
Post by: billyD on February 14, 2018, 07:10:49 PM

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, along with Washington Department of Agriculture, is investigating a pattern of Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes contamination in raw pet foods manufactured by Arrow Reliance Inc.

 As part of an ongoing investigation into complaints associated with products manufactured by Arrow Reliance/Darwin’s Natural of Tukwila, WA, the FDA has confirmed that new samples of Darwin’s Natural Pet Products raw pet foods have tested positive for Salmonella.

 These raw pet foods include ZooLogics Duck with Vegetable Meals for Dogs Lot #41957 and ZooLogics Chicken with Vegetable Meals for Dogs Lot #41567.

This contaminated raw pet food is of particular public health importance because of the potential hazard to both human and animal health.

Pets can get sick from Salmonella, but may also be carriers of the bacteria and can infect humans.

Pets do not have to be apparently ill to be able to pass Salmonella onto their human companions
