Dog Food Brand Tests Positive For Salmonella Says FDA
Your dog is part of the family, so feeding him or her properly is of the utmost importance. The FDA is warning dog owners of a food brand that tested positive for salmonella.
According to WKBW, the FDA says that Performance Dog frozen raw pet food, that was produced on or after July 22nd of this year, has tested positive for salmonella and listeria monocytogenes.
This was discovered when the FDA took samples of both the Performance Dog and the beef variety at the Bravo Packing Inc. facility in Carney's Point, New Jersey.
The FDA cautions against all Performance Dog raw pet food produced after July 22, saying it "represents a serious threat to human and animal health," the statement said.
Dog food has been heavily scrutinized this year based on over 500 cases of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) found in dogs, that are directly linked to certain types of dog food.
Always be on the lookout and make sure you have an FDA recommended dog food for your four-legged family member.
